[keycloak-user] what to do after storing the token with javascript

You have option to pass the tokens from local storage to the 'init' 
method of keycloak object. For example you can use something like:

   token: 'yourAccessToken',
   refreshToken: 'yourRefreshToken',
   idToken: 'yourIdToken'

Another option is to not store anything in localStorage, but instead 
after refresh the page re-authenticate the user again. User won't need 
to login again and provide username/password, because he should be 
logged automatically due to SSO (unless session is expired). This is 
what our admin console and examples are doing. Feel free to check them, 
especially angular example:
