Browser_storage

Represents a state Var that is stored as a cookie in the browser. Currently only supports string values.

Parameters

  • name : The name of the cookie on the client side.
  • path: The cookie path. Use / to make the cookie accessible on all pages.
  • max_age : Relative max age of the cookie in seconds from when the client receives it.
  • domain: Domain for the cookie (e.g., sub.domain.com or .allsubdomains.com).
  • secure: If the cookie is only accessible through HTTPS.
  • same_site: Whether the cookie is sent with third-party requests. Can be one of (True, False, None, lax, strict).
class CookieState(rx.State):
    c1: str = rx.Cookie()
    c2: str = rx.Cookie("c2 default")

    # cookies with custom settings
    c3: str = rx.Cookie(max_age=2)  # expires after 2 second
    c4: str = rx.Cookie(same_site="strict")
    c5: str = rx.Cookie(
        path="/foo/"
    )  # only accessible on `/foo/`
    c6: str = rx.Cookie(name="c6-custom-name")

Remove a cookie from the client's browser.

Parameters:

  • key: The name of cookie to remove.
rx.button("Remove cookie", on_click=rx.remove_cookie("key"))

This event can also be returned from an event handler:

class CookieState(rx.State):
    ...

    def logout(self):
        return rx.remove_cookie("auth_token")

Represents a state Var that is stored in localStorage in the browser. Currently only supports string values.

Parameters

  • name: The name of the storage key on the client side.
class LocalStorageState(rx.State):
    # local storage with default settings
    l1: str = rx.LocalStorage()

    # local storage with custom settings
    l2: str = rx.LocalStorage("l2 default")
    l3: str = rx.LocalStorage(name="l3")

Remove a local storage item from the client's browser.

Parameters

  • key: The key to remove from local storage.
rx.button(
    "Remove Local Storage",
    on_click=rx.remove_local_storage("key"),
)

This event can also be returned from an event handler:

class LocalStorageState(rx.State):
    ...

    def logout(self):
        return rx.remove_local_storage(
            "local_storage_state.l1"
        )

Clear all local storage items from the client's browser. This may affect other apps running in the same domain or libraries within your app that use local storage.

rx.button(
    "Clear all Local Storage",
    on_click=rx.clear_local_storage(),
)

If a non-trivial data structure should be stored in a Cookie or LocalStorage var it needs to be serialized before and after storing it. It is recommended to use rx.Base for the data which provides simple serialization helpers and works recursively in complex object structures.
