Day 19: LocalStorage

Lesson 4: Deleting data fromLocalStorage

Deleting data from LocalStorage is pretty simple. We use the handy .removeItem() function.

Let's add a button to delete all numbers. Add this to your HTML

1<button id="delete">Delete</button>

And this to your JavaScript

1const deleteButton = document.getElementById("delete");
2deleteButton.onclick = () => {
3  localStorage.removeItem("numbers");
4  numbers = [];
6  while (ul.hasChildNodes()) {
7    ul.removeChild(ul.children[0]);
8  }

We remove the item from LocalStorage, we reset the numbers array in memory and then we remove all the numbers from the <ul> in the DOM.
