Storage class

The type used by the Window.localStorage and Window.sessionStorage properties. Storage is implemented as a Map<String, String>.

To store and get values, use Dart's built-in map syntax:

window.localStorage['key1'] = 'val1';
window.localStorage['key2'] = 'val2';
window.localStorage['key3'] = 'val3';
assert(window.localStorage['key3'] == 'val3');

You can use Map APIs such as containsValue(), clear(), and length:

assert(window.localStorage.containsValue('does not exist') == false);
window.localStorage.clear();
assert(window.localStorage.length == 0);

For more examples of using this API, see localstorage_test.dart. For details on using the Map API, see the Maps section of the library tour.
