Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including nativescript-localstorage with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

var nativescriptLocalstorage = require("nativescript-localstorage")

Compatibility

Supports NativeScript 2.x and greater

Breaking Change from v1 to v2

  • V2.00 now forces setItem to be the same as a browser, browsers ONLY allow strings. If you would like the old behavior; use setItemObject instead of setItem which is an enhancement and allows all JavaScript types to be stored.

Installation

tns plugin add nativescript-localstorage

Usage

To use the module you just require() it:

require( "nativescript-localstorage" );

localStorage.setItem('Another Plugin', 'By Master Technology');

This will enable the localStorage api. So then you can use it just like a browser.

You can also optionally do:

let LS = require( "nativescript-localstorage" );
LS.getItem('Another Plugin');  // Returns: "By Master Technology"

You ask, how exactly does this help?

This allows you to use localStorage or sessionStorage as if it is built into NativeScript.

API

localStorage.getItem(name) - Get a value from Storage

name - the key to get

This will return whatever you stored in that key, or null if that key doesn't exist.

let me = localStorage.getItem('MeaningOfLife') || 42;

localStorage.setItem(name, value) - Set a STRING value into storage

name - the key to set
value - the value to set; this can be number or string. Will auto-convert to string.
localStorage.setItem('Zork', 'You are about to be eaten by a Grue!');

localStorage.setItemObject(name, value) - Sets a value into storage

name - the key to set
value - the value to set; this can be number, string, object, array. (Must be a native JavaScript object)
localStorage.setItem('Zork', {result: 'You are about to be eaten by a Grue!'});

localStorage.removeItem(name) - Delete and item from storage

name - the key to delete
localStorage.removeItem('Zork');  // Guess you were eaten and removed!  :-)

localStorage.clear() - clear all storage

localStorage.clear();

localStorage.length - Number of items stored

Returns the number of keys stored

console.log("Keys stored", localStorage.length);

localStorage.key(id) - Return the key name at this position

id - 0 based id of the key
returns: string name of the key (or null if id is past size of saved storage )
console.log("Key at 0 is", localStorage.key(0));

sessionStorage

You can use sessionStorage instead of localStorage for any of the routines above; the difference between the two API's is localStorage saves and will always be present, where sessionStorage is temporary, when you close the program it is gone.
