    IndexedDB API is low-level and may seem a bit daunting to use to some. For this reason, libraries such as localForage, dexie.js, ZangoDB, PouchDB, idb, idb-keyval, JsStore and lovefield provide a simpler API that makes IndexedDB more programmer-friendly.

    After scaffolding our application we needed to ensure it's offline first. That means we should be able to use it without an internet connection and without Portabella. For this we leveraged the localForage library. It tries to use IndexedDB and then falls back to LocalStorage if the browser doesn't have it.

    My latest venture has been PrivaNote (https://privanote.xyz). It's a simple, offline first and end-to-end encrypted note taking application. Behind the scenes it stores data in IndexedDB (gracefully falls back to LocalStorage if that's unavailable thanks to the LocalForage library) and if you enable the end-to-end encrypted sync it leverages Portabella (https://portabella.io) for storage. A separate post will be coming soon with more details on how I wrote this but it's also open source if you want to take a look at the code.

    Yeah, localstorage sucks for many reasons. A great alternative which is asynchronous and lets you use any kind of value you want is LocalForage.
