How to Install the VueJS project?

Create FirstComponent.vue and import it into App.js

  <div id="app">
    <FirstComponent />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import FirstComponent from "./components/FirstComponent.vue";
export default {
  name: "App",
  components: {
    FirstComponent,
  },
};
</script>

What is localStorage?

LocalStorage is the data storage type of web storage. This allows the Javascript sites and apps to store and access the data without any expiration date. The data will always and it will not expire even after the browser close.

Short solution

To remove the data from localStorage, we are going to use the removeItem() method to remove the data from localStorage. removeItem() method accepts the one parameter that is key. Let’s see the code syntax:

let name = 'sortoutcode';

//store the name data in localStorage
localStorage.setItem('wesite',name);    //localStorage.setItem(key);

// get data from localStorage
localStorage.removeItem('wesite');   // remove wesite key value

      <button @click="addData">Add Data</button><br />
      <button @click="removeData">Remove Data</button>

  },
