I needed a simple way to use the
localStorage with React, and one of the requirements was to use TypeScript. The idea from Robin Wieruch's original article is pretty simple. It encapsulates the browser
localStorage with the
useState hook. The hooks actually return a stateful value, and a function to update it. All I had to do was to put everything together into a TypeScript module.
You can also customize the
STORAGE_KEYS_PREFIX, which can be useful to avoid conflicts between storage keys from different applications you might be developing.
