ngx-webstorage

Please note that this is a fork of the original ngx-webstorage library found at https://github.com/PillowPillow/ng2-webstorage to make compatible with Angular 6.

Local and session storage - Angular service

This library provides an easy to use service to manage the web storages (local and session) from your Angular application. It provides also two decorators to synchronize the component attributes and the web storages.


Index:


Getting Started

  1. Download the library using npm npm install --save @rars/ngx-webstorage

  2. Register the library in your module

    import {NgModule} from '@angular/core';
    import {BrowserModule} from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import {Ng2Webstorage} from 'ngx-webstorage';
    
    @NgModule({
    	declarations: [...],
    	imports: [
    		BrowserModule,
    		Ng2Webstorage,
    		//Ng2Webstorage.forRoot({ prefix: 'custom', separator: '.', caseSensitive:true })
    		// The forRoot method allows to configure the prefix, the separator and the caseSensitive option used by the library
    		// Default values:
    		// prefix: "ng2-webstorage"
    		// separator: "|"
    		// caseSensitive: false
    	],
    	bootstrap: [...]
    })
    export class AppModule {
    }

    If you're using systemJS, you have to reference the umd version of the lib in your config.

    	System.config({
    		map: {
    			...,
    			'ngx-webstorage': 'node_modules/ngx-webstorage'
    		},
    		packages: {
    			...,
    			'ngx-webstorage': {main: 'bundles/core.umd.js', defaultExtension: 'js'}
    		}
    	});
  3. Inject the services you want in your components and/or use the available decorators

    import {Component} from '@angular/core';
    import {LocalStorageService, SessionStorageService} from 'ngx-webstorage';
    
    @Component({
    	selector: 'foo',
    	template: `foobar`
    })
    export class FooComponent {
    
    	constructor(private localSt:LocalStorageService) {}
    
    	ngOnInit() {
    		this.localSt.observe('key')
    			.subscribe((value) => console.log('new value', value));
    	}
    
    }
    import {Component} from '@angular/core';
    import {LocalStorage, SessionStorage} from 'ngx-webstorage';
    
    @Component({
    	selector: 'foo',
    	template: `{{boundValue}}`,
    })
    export class FooComponent {
    
    	@LocalStorage()
    	public boundValue;
    
    }

Services


LocalStorageService

Store( key:string, value:any ):void

Params:
  • key: String. localStorage key.
  • value: Serializable. value to store.
Usage:
import {Component} from '@angular/core';
import {LocalStorageService} from '@rars/ngx-webstorage';

@Component({
	selector: 'foo',
	template: `
		<section><input type="text" [(ngModel)]="attribute"/></section>
		<section><button (click)="saveValue()">Save</button></section>
	`,
})
export class FooComponent {

    attribute;

    constructor(private storage:LocalStorageService) {}

    saveValue() {
      this.storage.store('boundValue', this.attribute);
    }

}

Retrieve( key:string ):any

retrieve a value from the local storage

Params:
  • key: String. localStorage key.
Result:
  • Any; value
Usage:
import {Component} from '@angular/core';
import {LocalStorageService} from '@rars/ngx-webstorage';

@Component({
	selector: 'foo',
	template: `
		<section>{{attribute}}</section>
		<section><button (click)="retrieveValue()">Retrieve</button></section>
	`,
})
export class FooComponent {

    attribute;

    constructor(private storage:LocalStorageService) {}

    retrieveValue() {
      this.attribute = this.storage.retrieve('boundValue');
    }

}

Clear( key?:string ):void

Params:
  • key: (Optional) String. localStorage key.
Usage:
import {Component} from '@angular/core';
import {LocalStorageService, LocalStorage} from '@rars/ngx-webstorage';

@Component({
	selector: 'foo',
	template: `
		<section>{{boundAttribute}}</section>
		<section><button (click)="clearItem()">Clear</button></section>
	`,
})
export class FooComponent {

    @LocalStorage('boundValue')
    boundAttribute;

    constructor(private storage:LocalStorageService) {}

    clearItem() {
      this.storage.clear('boundValue');
      //this.storage.clear(); //clear all the managed storage items
    }

}

IsStorageAvailable():boolean

Usage:
import {Component, OnInit} from '@angular/core';
import {LocalStorageService, LocalStorage} from '@rars/ngx-webstorage';

@Component({
	selector: 'foo',
	template: `...`,
})
export class FooComponent implements OnInit {

    @LocalStorage('boundValue')
    boundAttribute;

    constructor(private storage:LocalStorageService) {}

    ngOnInit() {
      let isAvailable = this.storage.isStorageAvailable();
      console.log(isAvailable);
    }

    ngOnInit() {
      this.storage.observe('boundValue')
        .subscribe((newValue) => {
          console.log(newValue);
        })

The api is identical as the LocalStorageService's

Decorators


@LocalStorage

  • storage key: (Optional) String. localStorage key, by default the decorator will take the attribute name.
  • default value: (Optional) Serializable. Default value

import {Component} from '@angular/core';
import {LocalStorage, SessionStorage} from '@rars/ngx-webstorage';

@Component({
	selector: 'foo',
	template: `{{boundAttribute}}`,
})
export class FooComponent {

	@LocalStorage()
	public boundAttribute;

}

@SessionStorage

Synchronize the decorated attribute with a given value in the sessionStorage

Params:

  • storage key: (Optional) String. SessionStorage key, by default the decorator will take the attribute name.
  • default value: (Optional) Serializable. Default value

Usage:

import {Component} from '@angular/core';
import {LocalStorage, SessionStorage} from '@rars/ngx-webstorage';

@Component({
	selector: 'foo',
	template: `{{randomName}}`,
})
export class FooComponent {

	@SessionStorage('AnotherBoundAttribute')
	public randomName;

}

Known issues


  • Serialization doesn't work for objects:

Ng2Webstorage's decorators are based upon accessors so the update trigger only on assignation. Consequence, if you change the value of a bound object's property the new model will not be store properly. The same thing will happen with a push into a bound array. To handle this cases you have to trigger manually the accessor.

import {LocalStorage} from '@rars/ngx-webstorage';

class FooBar {

    @LocalStorage('prop')
    myArray;

    updateValue() {
        this.myArray.push('foobar');
        this.myArray = this.myArray; //does the trick
    }

}
