    STILL IN PROGRESS - MISSING FEATURES - API MAY CHANGE

    Introduction

    generic_store.js wraps store.js and add :

    • an implementation in memory for safe tests or other use
    • an (optional) automatic key prefixing for avoiding conflicts (NOT IMPLEMENTED)

    NOTE : ONLY set() AND get() ARE IMPLEMENTED FOR NOW !

    User Story

    In you web app, you use the convenient local storage instead of fat cookies. Of course, you use store.js (https://github.com/marcuswestin/store.js) to access the local storage.

    Now there are two problems :

    • it's unsafe to unit test your app since local storage is persistent and shared
    • you may mess with another local storage user which use the same keys

    Solution :

    • Have a store.js implementation in memory for tests
    • Have an automatic prefixing of keys

    Usage

    define(
    [
        'generic_store/generic_store',
    ],
    function(GenericStore) {
        "use strict";
     
        // new store, in memory, guaranteed to be empty
        var store1 = GenericStore.make_new("memory");
        // new store, in memory, guaranteed to be empty, different from the previous one
        var store2 = GenericStore.make_new("memory");
        // existing store (local storage), "existing" reminds us that it may already contain data
        var store3 = GenericStore.get_existing("local");
     
        // now use your store like store.js
        store.set('username', 'marcus');
        store.get('username');
        store.set('user', { name: 'marcus', likes: 'javascript' });
