5 Nice Tutorials: How To Store Form Data Locally Using HTML5 and jQuery

HTML5 is quite handy when we talk about Local Storage of our form data. If you are using same form at different location of your website and telling users to enter the same information then you may ease your users by using HTML5 Local Storage property which allows you to store form data locally at first submission and shows the same form data with prefigured values when user trying to submit same form again but from different location of the website.

In this post I am sharing 5 very good tutorial to teach you how to use HTML5 Local Storage property to store your form data locally. These tutorials are very well described and easy to understand. If you have just started using HTML5 form then these tutorials are would be very informative to you.

Here's the following list of tutorials:

1. Store Form Data with HTML5 localStorage and jQuery

This is a very simplistic jQuery function utilizing localStorage that I devised to help meet a specific need for a local client here in Utah county. I have re-written it here to be more flexible.

2. Wrapping Things Nicely with HTML5 Local Storage

A very well described tutorial by Christian Heilmann posted on In this helpful tutorial he has shared step by step guide to understand local storage using HTML5.

3. HTML5 & jQuery: localStorage forms

Working on a very cool new HTML5 application, I’ve had some useful experience with using localStorage. For those new to localStorage, it’s simply a way to store key and value pairs locally, meaning that like with cookies,  even after the user has left the page, data can be retrieved. It works differently from cookies in that the data is not stored on the server, rather its stored within the client web browser. It’s especially useful for forms and enhancing the user’s personal experience.

4. Using HTML5 localStorage on a form

HTML5 localStorage provides us with the ability to store named key/value pairs locally within a users browser, this means that the data stored in localStorage is still there even after a user has closed the browser, deleted their cookies or turned off their machine/device.

5. Storing Data the Simple HTML5 Way (and a few tricks you might not have known) 

This post is about the Web Storage API. Technically it’s been shifted out of the HTML5 specification and can now be found in it’s very own dedicated spec. But if it counts at all – it used to be part of the Web Applications spec.
