I'm trying to save an array consisting of multiple features via localStorage.

var featureArray=[];
map.on('click', function(evt) {
  if (feature) {

function saveFeatures() {
  localStorage.setItem('features', featureArray);

Via console console.log(featureArray); looks fine, but when I try to load them via localStorage.getItem('features') the output (after two clicks) is something like:

[object Object],[object Object]

But I actually want the values behind this structure to be saved:

enter image description here

I tried JSON.stringify(featureArray) but that throws the error

TypeError: Converting circular structure to JSON

What am I doing wrong?

UPDATE: https://jsfiddle.net/ytc26fju/3/ (hover over the dot, then save and then try loading with the buttons

Got it. Don't fully understand why, but a feature Object had a circular structure. I had to do:

for (i=0;i<featureArray.length;i++) {
  delete featureArray[i].geometry;
