localStorage(string | variable)
localStorage allows you to save string data so it is available next time you run the program. An entry can be created by assigning to localStorage.variableName, where variableName is chosen by you. Data is retrieved the same way. A program is allowed to store at least 5 megabytes of data in localStorage. The information in localStorage is lost if the browser cache is cleared on some devices. To be certain that you do not lose data, save it into an SQLite database instead.
localStorage is shared among all apps deployed from the same web server. This can be useful if you have a family of apps which need to share data.
Note that if the user has Private Browsing turned on, localStorage is not accessible.
