How to use


        url          : '/post',
        localCache   : true,        // required to use

        cacheTTL     : 1,           // in hours. Optional
        cacheKey     : 'post',      // optional
        isCacheValid : function(){  // optional
            return true;

        success: function(reply) {
            // i can play with my reply ! 

On your AJAX request you get 4 new parameters :

  • localCache
    • Turn localCache on/off
    • Default: false
  • cacheTTL
    • time in hours the entry should be valid.
    • only for this specific ajax request
    • Default : 5 hours
  • cacheKey
    • CacheKey is the key that will be used to store the response in localStorage. It allow you to delete your cache easily with the localStorage.removeItem() function.
    • Default: URL + TYPE(GET/POST) + DATA
  • isCacheValid
    • This function must return true or false. On false, the cached response is removed.
    • Default: null


  • You can delete the cache by using localStorage.clear().
  • Note that you can pre-load content with this plugin. You just have do to the same AJAX request without a success callback and the same cacheKey.
