ngx-webstorage

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.

CircleCI

Index:


Migrate from v2.x to the v3

  1. Update your project to Angular 7+
  2. Rename the module usages by NgxWebstorageModule.forRoot() (before: Ng2Webstorage)

The forRoot is now mandatory in the root module even if you don't need to configure the library

Migrate from v13.x to the v18

  1. Update your project to Angular 18+
  2. Rename the module usages by provideNgxWebstorage() (before: NgxWebstorageModule.forRoot())
  3. Add the new provider functions to configure the library
	provideNgxWebstorage(
		withNgxWebstorageConfig({ separator: ':', caseSensitive: true }),
		withLocalStorage(),
		withSessionStorage()
	)

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

  2. Declare the library in your main module

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

Since the new standalone API and angular v15+, provider functions are now the way to go to configure your application (learn more).

  1. From now on to setup your project, you can use the provideNgxWebstorage function.

  2. You can independently add the (you can of course add them both together):

    • localStorage features with withLocalStorage
    • sessionStorage features with withLocalStorage
  3. You can add a custom configuration with withNgxWebstorageConfig

bootstrapApplication(AppComponent, {
	providers: [
		// ...
		provideNgxWebstorage(
			withNgxWebstorageConfig({ separator: ':', caseSensitive: true }),
			withLocalStorage(),
			withSessionStorage()
		)
	]
})

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

create or update an item in the local storage

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

}

Observe( key?:string ):EventEmitter

Params:
  • key: (Optional) localStorage key.
Result:
  • Observable; instance of EventEmitter
Usage:
import {Component} from '@angular/core';
import {LocalStorageService, LocalStorage} from 'ngx-webstorage';

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

    @LocalStorage('boundValue')
    boundAttribute;

    constructor(private storage:LocalStorageService) {}

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

}

The api is identical as the LocalStorageService's


Synchronize the decorated attribute with a given value in the localStorage

Params:

  • storage key: (Optional) String. localStorage 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 'ngx-webstorage';

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

	@LocalStorage()
	public boundAttribute;

}

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 'ngx-webstorage';

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

	@SessionStorage('AnotherBoundAttribute')
	public randomName;

}

  • Serialization doesn't work for objects:

NgxWebstorage'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 'ngx-webstorage';

class FooBar {

    @LocalStorage('prop')
    myArray;

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

}
