I’ve been looking around for good ways to store information for a PhoneGap application I’m working on. I think that the PhoneGap SQL
APIs may still be the best bet but I also wanted to check out some of the more unique storage options. One of the options I came
across was Lawnchair, by Brian Leroux. One of the beautiful things about Lawnchair is that it’s incredibly simple.
It does persistent JSON storage, has adapters for different storage options (localstorage, webSQL, etc) and is very lightweight. One
of the not-fun things about Lawnchair is that it’s incredibly simple. While I found it easy to use (mostly) there were some areas
that didn’t work. I think part of the issue is that I don’t have a lot of experience with NoSQL solutions like CouchDB (where
Lawnchair draws a lot of its inspiration) so I think a lot of the issue lies with me.
