Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11974) wkwebview LocalStorage Persistence For Existing Users
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2017 15:51:00 GMT


Martin Kleinschrodt commented on CB-11974:

I got tired of waiting for this issue to be addressed here so I built a companion plugin for
handling LocalStorage data migration from UIWebView to WKWebView:

Personally I don't mind using a separate plugin but I think more people could benefit from
it if the logic was integrated into this plugin directly. I'd be happy to submit a PR but
obj-c admittedly is not my strong-suit so I'd probably need some help with tests and such.

> There are a number of apps out there that rely on localstorage to store session / user
data. We really need a way to transfer this data to the wkwebview-engine so existing users
are not left out in the cold.
> Crosswalk handles this process automatically by migrating that data to the new browser
when the plugin is installed and first run on an existing user's device. It would be really,
really awesome if this plugin handled this issue the same way.
