Sticky

Sticky is a simple, key/value pair, browser-storage cache leveraging the latest HTML5 storage API's (indexedDB, webSQL, and localStorage).

Sticky persists to memory, indexedDB, webSQL, localStorage, globalStorage, and cookies.

Objects and arrays are stringified before storage and strings longer than 128 characters aren't persisted to cookies.

Browser Support

  • WebSQL (SQLite)
    Chrome 4+, Opera 10.5+, Safari 3.1+, and Android Browser 2.1+ 5MB of data per DB, but can request more
  • IndexedDB
    IE 10+, FireFox 4+, and Chrome 11+
  • localStorage
    Safari 4+, Mobile Safari (iPhone/iPad), Firefox 3.5+, Internet Explorer 8+ and Chrome 4+ 5MB of data per domain
  • globalStorage
    FireFox 2-3
  • Cookies
    Usually 1-4KB per domain. Only strings that are less than 128 characters are persisted to cookies by Sticky.

Usage

HTML:

<script src="sticky-0.3.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

JavaScript:

// Initialize your store and repopulate cached data
var store = new StickyStore({
    name: 'Store A',
    version: '1.0'
});

// Set
store.set('color', 'red');

// Get
store.get('color');

// Remove
store.remove('color');

Initialize a store

First, you must create a sticky store object like so:

var store = new StickyStore();

Alternatively, you can specify some options for this store by passing the opts argument:

var store = new StickyStore({
    name: 'Store A',       // Unique identifier for this store. Required to use multiple stores.
    version: '1.0',        // Version for this store.
    ready: function() {},  // Fires after cache has been repopulated.
    domain: 'example.com', // Custom cookie domain.
    expires: 48,           // Hours. Used for cookie expiration.
    size: 5                // indexedDB / webSQL database size in megabytes.
});

When you initialize a store, its cache will be repopulated from browser storage. Because indexedDB and webSQL operate asynchronously, Sticky will fire the store.opts.ready function after the cache has been repopulated.

Multiple Stores

Cached data is specific to a store's name and version options. Sticky supports multiple stores by prefixing the key values with the name and version.

Get

Returns the cached value or null if it isn't found. Example:

var store = new StickyStore();

store.get('something');

Set

Caches a value and returns the cached value or false on error. You can pass any type of value: String, array, object, and number. Objects and arrays will be stringified and prefixed with J::O for storage.

var store = new StickyStore();

store.set('car', {
    make: 'Volkswagen',
    model: 'Golf GTI',
    year: 2001
});

Remove

Removes the cached value from this store from all storage mechanisms and returns true if successful.

var store = new StickyStore();

store.remove('something');

Remove All

Removes all cached values for this store from all storage mechanisms.

var store = new StickyStore();

store.removeAll();
