A developer tool for viewing and editing of the HTML5 localStorage API on a webpage
html5 buddy is a small extension that allows fast access to a page's localStorage. The HTML5 localStorage API is quite powerful -- it allows for storing key-value pairs in a browser, which can have many possible uses such as storing of user preferences, caching data, or saving browsing state, all in a much more simple manner than through using cookies.
__ FEATURES __
1. easy editing of keys and values by just clicking them
2. filtering as well as sorting by key/value to speed finding a particular value
3. saving of a state of localStorage, which is indispensable for debugging
__ ISSUES __
1. will only work for http: and https: urls -- unfortunately I cannot inject the extension into file: urls. develop on a local webserver instead!
Any suggestions for future development are welcome -- WebSQL administration is on the way already for version 0.2. html5buddy development started to address particular problems, and I would like to hear about what development issues you encounter when working with localStorage.
__ CHANGES __
0.11: had to update since some features were no longer working!
0.1: initial version
