Progress report: I am moving the document persistence system from a hackish local server setup to one where the app reads and writes documents in designated directory. It is going well: can now list the files in the local directory as well as load them. Probably a full days work, no more, to finish doc persistence.

Getting file access to work required properly browserifying the Tauri JS API. Had great & fast help from the Tauri team on this. Am using Deno/Velociraptor for the scripts which manage the dev process.

See PPS in the article. All the file persistence stuff is done!
