    <FirstComponent />
  </div>

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.

To store the data in localStorage, we are going to use the setItem() method to add the data in localStorage. setItem() method accepts the two parameters that is key and value. Let’s see the code syntax:

let name = 'sortoutcode';

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

// get data from localStorage
localStorage.getItem('website');   // sortoutcode

  <div>
    <h1>Data from localStorage</h1>
    <div>
      <p v-if="name">data: {{ name }}</p>
      <button @click="addData">Add Data</button>
    </div>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
export default {
  name: "FirstComponent",
  data() {
    return {
      name: "",
    };
  },
  methods: {
    addData() {
      localStorage.setItem("website", "sortoutcode");
      this.name = localStorage.getItem("website");
