IndexedDB

How to use the standard client-side database, demonstrations of all functions.

IndexedDB has been implemented in all browsers for several years. It is a key/value database, therefore non-SQL, on the client's side. It allows an application to make all user data available on the user's computer to be accessible from one session to another without having to load them on the server each time the application is launched.

We can thus make available to the user a large library of functions, which will be loaded once and for all. It will only be accessible for the application(s) of the same site, an IndexedDB database is linked to a domain.
