With DrupalGap 8, it's easy to set aside variables (a name/value pair) in local storage so that those values can be retrieved later, even after an application is restarted.

It's recommend to prefix your variable names with the machine name of your module, followed by an underscore. In the following examples we want a variable foo to exist within our module's namespace, so we set up the variable name as my_module_foo so:

Setting a Variable

var foo = {
  'bar': 'chew',
  'moo': [
dg.setVar('my_module_foo', foo);

Getting a Variable

var foo = dg.getVar('my_module_foo');
dg.alert(; // Alerts 'chew'.

Deleting a Variable


Getting a Variable and Setting a Default

var example = dg.getVar('my_module_example', true);

This will automatically set aside true in local storage for the value of my_module_example, that way others can pick up that value, without you having to make a call to dg.setVar(). This is optional, and merely for convenience.
