API Reference

createSyncStoragePersister

Installation

This utility comes as a separate package and is available under the '@tanstack/query-sync-storage-persister' import.

bash
npm install @tanstack/query-sync-storage-persister @tanstack/react-query-persist-client

or

bash
yarn add @tanstack/query-sync-storage-persister @tanstack/react-query-persist-client

Usage

  • Import the createSyncStoragePersister function
  • Create a new syncStoragePersister
  • Pass it to the persistQueryClient function
ts
import { persistQueryClient } from '@tanstack/react-query-persist-client'
import { createSyncStoragePersister } from '@tanstack/query-sync-storage-persister'
const queryClient = new QueryClient({
defaultOptions: {
queries: {
cacheTime: 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24, // 24 hours
},
},
})
const localStoragePersister = createSyncStoragePersister({ storage: window.localStorage })
// const sessionStoragePersister = createSyncStoragePersister({ storage: window.sessionStorage })
persistQueryClient({
queryClient,
persister: localStoragePersister,
})

Retries

Persistence can fail, e.g. if the size exceeds the available space on the storage. Errors can be handled gracefully by providing a retry function to the persister.

The retry function receives the persistedClient it tried to save, as well as the error and the errorCount as input. It is expected to return a new PersistedClient, with which it tries to persist again. If undefined is returned, there will be no further attempt to persist.

ts
export type PersistRetryer = (props: {
persistedClient: PersistedClient
error: Error
errorCount: number
}) => PersistedClient | undefined

Predefined strategies

Per default, no retry will occur. You can use one of the predefined strategies to handle retries. They can be imported from '@tanstack/react-query-persist-client':

  • removeOldestQuery
    • will return a new PersistedClient with the oldest query removed.
tsx
const localStoragePersister = createSyncStoragePersister({
storage: window.localStorage,
retry: removeOldestQuery
})

API

createSyncStoragePersister

Call this function to create a syncStoragePersister that you can use later with persistQueryClient.

tsx
createSyncStoragePersister(options: CreateSyncStoragePersisterOptions)

Options

ts
interface CreateSyncStoragePersisterOptions {
/** The storage client used for setting an retrieving items from cache (window.localStorage or window.sessionStorage) */
storage: Storage
/** The key to use when storing the cache */
key?: string
/** To avoid spamming,
* pass a time in ms to throttle saving the cache to disk */
throttleTime?: number
/** How to serialize the data to storage */
serialize?: (client: PersistedClient) => string
/** How to deserialize the data from storage */
deserialize?: (cachedString: string) => PersistedClient
/** How to retry persistence on error **/
retry?: PersistRetryer
}

The default options are:

tsx
{
key = `REACT_QUERY_OFFLINE_CACHE`,
throttleTime = 1000,
serialize = JSON.stringify,
deserialize = JSON.parse,
}

serialize and deserialize options

There is a limit to the amount of data which can be stored in localStorage. If you need to store more data in localStorage, you can override the serialize and deserialize functions to compress and decrompress the data using a library like lz-string.

tsx
import { QueryClient } from '@tanstack/react-query';
import { persistQueryClient } from '@tanstack/react-query-persist-client'
import { createSyncStoragePersister } from '@tanstack/query-sync-storage-persister'
import { compress, decompress } from 'lz-string';
const queryClient = new QueryClient({ defaultOptions: { queries: { staleTime: Infinity } } });
persistQueryClient({
queryClient: connectionsQueryClient,
persistor: createSyncStoragePersister({
storage: window.localStorage,
serialize: data => compress(JSON.stringify(data)),
deserialize: data => JSON.parse(decompress(data)),
}),
maxAge: Infinity,
});
