React Native Async Storage

By Himanshu on 3/18/2023

React Native Async Storage

React Native Async Storage is a simple, unencrypted, asynchronous, persistent, and key-value storage system that is global to the app and should be used instead of LocalStorage.
One of the critical features of Async Storage is that it is asynchronous, which means that all operations are non-blocking. Making it a good choice for storing large amounts of data, or for storing data that is accessed frequently.

Another important feature of Async Storage is that it is persistent. This means that the data stored in Async Storage will not be lost if the app is closed or the device is rebooted. This is a significant advantage over LocalStorage, which is not persistent.
Async Storage also provides a simple key-value storage system. Each piece of data is stored with a unique key, which can be used to retrieve the data later. This makes it easy to store and retrieve large amounts of data, and also makes it easy to update or delete specific pieces of data.

One of the most common use cases for Async Storage is to store user data, such as login credentials or preferences. For example, you can use Async Storage to store a user's login credentials, so that they can be automatically logged in when the app is opened. You can also use Async Storage to store user preferences, such as the theme or language settings.
Another common use case for Async Storage is to store app-specific data, such as a cache of data from a remote server. For example, you can use Async Storage to store a cache of data from a weather API, so that the app can display the current weather even when the device is offline.

Overall, React Native Async Storage is a powerful and easy-to-use storage system that can be used to store a wide variety of data. Whether you're building an app that needs to store user data, app-specific data, or a cache of data from a remote server, Async Storage is an excellent choice.

To use Async Storage in your React Native app, you need to first install the react-native-async-storage package. Then, you can import the package and use it in your code like this:

import AsyncStorage from '@react-native-community/async-storage';
// To store data
await AsyncStorage.setItem('key', 'value');
// To retrieve data 
const value = await AsyncStorage.getItem('key'); console.log(value); 
// To delete data 
await AsyncStorage.removeItem('key');

Async Storage also provides other methods like getAllKeys(), multiGet(), multiSet(), multiRemove(), clear() etc. It also provides an API to handle the events of storage change. It is a very powerful and flexible API for storing data in React Native apps.

In conclusion, Async Storage is a great choice for storing data in React Native apps. Its asynchronous, persistent, and key-value nature makes it a perfect solution for storing user, app-specific, or a cache of data from a remote server. With easy-to-use API's and great flexibility, it is definitely worth considering for your next React Native project.
