File Handling Code for Javascript

Greetings Fellow in Web Development, I don't know yet how to deal with database and create a database for my server, so i just think out of the box, create a simple database in Pascal "I know it's a very old programming language but that is what I know :)" and I use the technique of FILE HANDLING. The software can create a file and you can declare a file extension with .txt for notepad or .doc for MSWord in short it is a readable text file, it can search for specific text file, rewrite (re-edit), delete a file, encode all data information to the text file and previews information.

My question is, is there also a File Handling Technique for Javascript, that can do also what i have mention that we can apply for Forms and data previews information?

Thanks and God Bless.....

Pascal is a server-side language, JavaScript on the other hand runs on the client-side (unless we are talking about nodeJS) so in that case you'll want to use localstorage.
