How to Save Progress
In this program we are saving the number of times that the page has been loaded, but we could use the same technique to store any kind of progress. Processing offers two functions that allow you to read and write to a file
saveStrings. In this program we are reading and writing to a text file called
progress.txt. The first time a user visits the page, we load the number 1 from
progress.txt and display it to the screen. Then we increment the counter and save the increased value using
When we save the increased value, it is stored in the users web browser cache, not in the
progress.txt on the website. This is called HTML storage or Web storage. This means that each users progress will be saved independently of any other users. Note that the size of the stored data is limited to 5Mb.
