I wrote this hook to persist a simple user settings (think dark mode) to local storage in a cross-tab compatible way.

Example Usage

The first argument is the name of the local storage property/key you want to control with this hook. The second argument, options, really just has one available directive: bool. Setting bool to true has the effect of evaluating the data returned from getItem as a boolean (otherwise it's always a string).

import useStorage from "./useLocalStorage.js"
