Vue localStorage API.

import VueLocalStorage from 'vue-ls';

options = {
  namespace: 'vuejs__'
};

Vue.use(VueLocalStorage, options);

//or
//Vue.use(VueLocalStorage);

new Vue({
    el: '#app',
    mounted: function() {
        Vue.ls.set('foo', 'boo');
        //Set expire for item
        Vue.ls.set('foo', 'boo', 60 * 60 * 1000); //expiry 1 hour
        Vue.ls.get('foo');
        Vue.ls.get('boo', 10); //if not set boo returned default 10
        
        let callback = (val, oldVal, uri) => {
          console.log('localStorage change', val);
        } 
        
        Vue.ls.on('foo', callback) //watch change foo key and triggered callback
        Vue.ls.off('foo', callback) //unwatch
        
        Vue.ls.remove('foo');
    }
});

Global

Context

API

Vue.ls.get(name, def)

Returns value under name in local storage. Internally parses the value from JSON before returning it.

Vue.ls.set(name, value, expire)

Persists value under name in local storage. Internally converts the value to JSON.

Vue.ls.remove(name)

Removes name from local storage. Returns true if the property was successfully deleted, and false otherwise.

Vue.ls.clear()

Clears local storage.

Vue.ls.on(name, callback)

Listen for changes persisted against name on other tabs. Triggers callback when a change occurs, passing the following arguments.

Vue.ls.off(name, callback)

Removes a listener previously attached with Vue.ls.on(name, callback).

Testing

Testing Supported By

Note

Some browsers don’t support the storage event, and most of the browsers that do support it will only call it when the storage is changed by a different window. So, open your page up in two windows. Click the links in one window and you will probably see the event in the other.

The assumption is that your page will already know all interactions with localStorage in its own window and only needs notification when a different window changes things. This, of course, is a foolish assumption. But.
