MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

IndexedDB — низкоуровневое API для клиентского хранилища большого объема структурированных данных, включая фаилы/blobs. Эти API используют индексы для обеспечения высоко-производительного поиска данных. Если DOM Storage  полезен для хранения небольшого количества данных, он менее выгоден для большого числа структурированных данных. IndexedDB предоставляет решение. Это основная страница на MDN, покрывающая IndexedDB — здесь мы предоставляем ссылки к полному списку API и руководствам по использованию, детали поддержки браузерами и некоторые объяснения ключевых концепций.

Примечание: Эта возможность доступна в Web Workers.

Заметка: IndexedDB API мощные, но могут казаться слишком сложными для простых задач. Если вы предпочитаете простые API, попробуйте библиотеки, такие как localForage, dexie.js и ZangoDB, делающие IndexedDB более дружественным.

Ключевые концепции и  использование

IndexedDB транзакционная система базы данных, как SQL-основанная RDBMS. Однако, в отличие от RDBMS, которая использует таблицы с фиксированными колонками, IndexedDB — JavaScript-основанная объектно-ориентированная база данных. IndexedDB позволяет сохранять и возвращать объекты, которые были проиндексированы с ключем; любой объект, поддерживаемый структурированным алгоритмом клонирования может быть сохранен. Необходимо описать схему базы данных, установить соединение с ней и затем получить и обновить данные за несколько транзакций.

  • Читайте больше о Концепции IndexedDB.
  • Изучите асинхронное использование IndexedDB по первоначальным принципам с руководством Using IndexedDB.
  • Найдите рекомендации по разработке, чтобы заставить ваш сайт работать вне сети, на странице Offline Apps.

Заметка: Как и большинство решений web-хранения, IndexedDB следует аналогичной same-origin policy. Поэтому вы имеете доступ к хранилищу данных в пределах одного домена, но не можете получать их с любого другого.

Синхронность и асинхронность

Operations performed using IndexedDB are done asynchronously, so as not to block applications. IndexedDB originally included both synchronous and asynchronous APIs. The synchronous API was intended for use only with Web Workers, but was removed from the spec because it was unclear whether it was needed. However,  the synchronous API may be reintroduced if there is enough demand from web developers.

Storage limits and eviction criteria

There are a number of web technologies that store data of one kind or another on the client side (i.e. on your local disk). IndexedDB is the most commonly talked about one. The process by which the browser works out how much space to allocate to web data storage and what to delete when that limit is reached is not simple, and differs between browsers. Browser storage limits and eviction criteria attempts to explain how this works, at least in the case of Firefox.


To get access to a database, call open() on the indexedDB attribute of a window object. This method returns an IDBRequest object; asynchronous operations communicate to the calling application by firing events on IDBRequest objects.

Connecting to a database

Provides access to IndexedDB functionality. It is implemented by the window and worker objects.
Provides access to a database. This is the interface implemented by the global object indexedDB and is therefore the entry point for the API.
Represents a request to open a database.
Represents a connection to a database. It's the only way to get a transaction on the database.
Retrieving and modifying data
Represents a transaction. You create a transaction on a database, specify the scope (such as which object stores you want to access), and determine the kind of access (read only or readwrite) that you want.
Generic interface that handles database requests and provides access to results.
Represents an object store that allows access to a set of data in an IndexedDB database, looked up via primary key.
Also allows access to a subset of data in an IndexedDB database, but uses an index to retrieve the record(s) rather than the primary key. This is sometimes faster than using IDBObjectStore.
Iterates over object stores and indexes.
Iterates over object stores and indexes and returns the cursor's current value.
Defines a key range that can be used to retrieve data from a database in a certain range.
Defines a key range that can be used to retrieve data from a database in a certain range, sorted according to the rules of the locale specified for a certain index (see createIndex()'s optionalParameters.).

Custom event interfaces

This specification fires events with the following custom interface:

The IDBVersionChangeEvent interface indicates that the version of the database has changed, as the result of an IDBOpenDBRequest.onupgradeneeded event handler function.

Obsolete interfaces

An early version of the specification also defined these now removed interfaces. They are still documented in case you need to update previously written code:

Represents a request to change the version of a database. The way to change the version of the database has since changed (by calling without also calling IDBDatabase.setVersion), and the interface IDBOpenDBRequest now has the functionality of the removed IDBVersionChangeRequest.
Represents exception conditions that can be encountered while performing database operations.
Sync version of IDBTransaction.
Sync version of IDBObjectStore.
Sync version of IDBIndex.
Sync version of IDBFactory.
Sync version of IDBEnvironment.
Sync version of IDBDatabase.
Sync version of IDBCursor.

  • [1] IDBCursorWithValue is not available in workers until Gecko 42.0 (Firefox 42.0 / Thunderbird 42.0 / SeaMonkey 2.39).
  • [2] This feature is currently hidden behind a flag — to enable it and experiment, go to about:config and enable dom.indexedDB.experimental.
  • [3] AKA "Private Browsing Mode" (Firefox) and "Incognito" (Chrome).
