How To Use LocalStorage In AngularJS

Posted by Weston Ganger on March 07, 2016

With all apps these days local storage can be used for anything. Its awesome.

My favourite is to use the ngStorage module for both local storage and session storage.

The simple alternative is to create a small angular service to interact which works perfect too.

yourApp.factory('$localstorage', ['$window', function($window) {
  return {
    set: function(key, value) {
      $window.localStorage[key] = value;
    get: function(key, defaultValue) {
      return $window.localStorage[key] || defaultValue || false;
    setObject: function(key, value) {
      $window.localStorage[key] = JSON.stringify(value);
    getObject: function(key, defaultValue) {
      if($window.localStorage[key] != undefined){
          return JSON.parse($window.localStorage[key]);
        return defaultValue || false;
    remove: function(key){
    clear: function(){
