Local storage folder

hi… some one please I have no idea where is local storage folder is? subject in ionic book tutorial, if we can view and edit data from that json file if I am not wrong?

Local storage is not a file or folder, it is like a simple browser database that lets you store key:value pairs. Plenty of good resources about what it is and how to use it are easy to find by searching.



On Android look around your file system in the following path /data/data/<package name>/. You’ll find there files and folders that you are looking for. But you need to have the device rooted to do anything in system folders.

Thank you sir…!

great… thanks rafa…!

Thank you for the explanation…It’s really helpful… :grin:

Thank you sir.

Nobody should be using localStorage for anything. Whatever you’re trying to do, there are better options.

Trying to communicate amongst different parts of a running app? Framework-specific. In Angular, use a mutually injected service provider.

Trying to leave notes-in-bottles for the next run of the app? Use Ionic Storage.

Need structured queries for lots of data? Use SQLite.


Thanks and regards.
