localstorage-IDB-Keyval

This is Jake Archibald's implementation slightly altered to adhere to the localStorage API. This way it can easily be used with projects like redux-persist.

npm size

This is a super-simple-small promise-based keyval store implemented with IndexedDB, largely based on async-storage by Mozilla.

localForage offers similar functionality, but supports older browsers with broken/absent IDB implementations. Because of that, it's 7.4k, whereas localstorage-idb-keyval is ~550 bytes. Also, it's tree-shaking friendly, so you'll probably end up using fewer than 450 bytes. Pick whichever works best for you!

This is only a keyval store. If you need to do more complex things like iteration & indexing, check out IDB on NPM (a little heavier at 1.7k). The first example in its README is how to recreate this library.

Usage

setItem:

import { setItem } from 'localstorage-idb-keyval';
 
setItem('hello', 'world');
setItem('foo', 'bar');

Since this is IDB-backed, you can store anything structured-clonable (numbers, arrays, objects, dates, blobs etc).

All methods return promises:

import { setItem } from 'localstorage-idb-keyval';
 
setItem('hello', 'world')
  .then(() => console.log('It worked!'))
  .catch(err => console.log('It failed!', err));

getItem:

import { getItem } from 'localstorage-idb-keyval';
 
// logs: "world"
getItem('hello').then(val => console.log(val));

If there is no 'hello' key, then val will be undefined.

keys:

import { keys } from 'localstorage-idb-keyval';
 
// logs: ["hello", "foo"]
keys().then(keys => console.log(keys));

removeItem:

import { removeItem } from 'localstorage-idb-keyval';
 
removeItem('hello');

clear:

import { clear } from 'localstorage-idb-keyval';
 
clear();

Custom stores:

By default, the methods above use an IndexedDB database named keyval-store and an object store named keyval. You can create your own store, and pass it as an additional parameter to any of the above methods:

import { Store, setItem } from 'localstorage-idb-keyval';
 
const customStore = new Store('custom-db-name', 'custom-store-name');
setItem('foo', 'bar', customStore);

That's it!

Installing

Via npm + webpack/rollup

npm install localstorage-idb-keyval

Now you can require/import localstorage-idb-keyval:

import { getItem, setItem } from 'localstorage-idb-keyval';

Via <script>

  • dist/localstorage-idb-keyval.mjs is a valid JS module.
  • dist/localstorage-idb-keyval-iife.js can be used in browsers that don't support modules. idbKeyval is created as a global.

Install

npm i localstorage-idb-keyval
