openReq.onupgradeneeded = function (event) {
    var db =;
    db.createObjectStore("todo", {autoIncrement: true});
openReq.onsuccess = function (event) {
    var db =,
        sampleItem = { 
            todo: "my todo item",
            added_on: new Date()
    var addReq = db.transaction("todo", "readwrite").objectStore("todo").add(sampleItem);
    addReq.onsuccess = function (event) {
        console.log("Operation completed successfully");
    addReq.onerror = function (event) {
        console.log("Operation failed");
openReq.onerror = function (event) {
    console.log("Operation failed");
