HTML5 / JavaScript ist starting to get useful

Previous topic - Next topic


I presume file I/O isn't allowed, beyond the ability to save data as one long text cookie...


Well, HTML5 started a new client-side storage system based on two objects, sessionStorage and localStorage. The first exists for the duration of the session and the second exists without expiration. Like cookies, it only stores strings but it's as easy as the objects just being key/value collections.


Code (glbasic) Select
sessionStorage.start = new Date();
if(!localStorage.playerName) localStorage.playerName = "Ruidesco"



Looks like some new commands will be needed then!

Will we be able to get rid of that initialisation text (or is that just output from the DEBUG command) ?

You can change the HTML template website. At least, that's the plan. So you can hide the console.
