The Web Storage API is an HTML browser-based API offering an alternative data storage method to cookies. An example use case is when a user may be completing multiple transactions in different windows with the same provider. To solve issues that arise with cookies, developers can use the Web Storage sessionStorage IDL attribute to store relevant information in a browser's session, enabling the same data to be dispersed across multiple pages that are accessing the same site in the same window. Furthermore, the localStorage IDL attribute can be used to store browser larger amounts of site-specific information accessible across multiple windows. The Web Storage API documentation comes in the form of an abstract written and edited by Google and W3C representatives.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
