Ionic Build Dont Work (App works in Browser)

Hey there,
Im working on a To Do List app and finally added localStorage to it.
in the browser everything works fine, but if i install the apk on my Phone, the todolist is fully white and i cannot add tasks.
Its since i added localStorage. Maybe you can take a look at it.

ngstorage. I’m guessing this would also require ngCordova. Download the ngCordova.js file and include it before the cordova.js in your index.html file. See if that works.

it dont works :frowning: maybe any other idea?

I actually don’t see why you need ngstorage if you just want to use localstorage. try removing ngcordova.js and ngstorage.min.js from your index.html file.

simply add something like this in your factory to make your code short and sweet.

.factory('$localstorage', ['$window', function($window) {
    return {
      set: function(key, value) {
        $window.localStorage[key] = value;
        console.log(key+' has been set with value: '+value);
     get: function(key, defaultValue) {
        return $window.localStorage[key] || defaultValue;
     setObject: function(key, value) {
        $window.localStorage[key] = JSON.stringify(value);
     getObject: function(key) {
        return JSON.parse($window.localStorage[key] || '{}');
     remove: function(key){

and then in your controller add $localstorage (not $localStorage) in your dependency, then you can use it like so:

$localstorage.set('tasks', $scope.tasks);
etc etc...

Hope that helps.

do i have to get the tasks via ng-init? Sorry im very bad with localstorage xD

When i looked it up with console.log now it gives me this “tasks has been set with value: [object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]” but it dont really saves it to the tasks, so what can i do?

Sorry i forgot to say when saving $scope.tasks it needs to be saved in a string format. e.g.

$localstorage.set('tasks', JSON.stringify($scope.tasks));

When getting your info you need to parse it so that it can be used as an object like so:

$scope.tasks = JSON.parse($localstorage.get('tasks');

That should fix it.

First of all thank you, it works, but sometimes this error is thrown - "Error: [ngRepeat:dupes] Duplicates in a repeater are not allowed. Use ‘track by’ expression to specify unique keys. Repeater: task in tasks, Duplicate key: object:13, Duplicate value: {“title”:“TEAst”}"
So how can i disable to make same named Tasks?

forget it, it works xD Sorry for taking your time, but thank you very much!

Great. i’m glad it fixed your problem. :slight_smile:
