@polka/url npm

Super fast, memoized req.url parser; not limited to Polka!

Parses the url from a IncomingMessage request. The returned object will always only contain the following keys: search, query, pathname, path, href, and _raw.

Note: This library does not process protocol, hostname, port, etc.
This is because the incoming req.url value only begins with the path information.

Parsed requests will be mutated with a _parsedUrl key, containing the returned output. This is used for future memoization, so as to avoid parsing the same url value multiple times.

Install

$ npm install --save @polka/url

Usage

const parse = require('@polka/url');

let req = { url: '/foo/bar?fizz=buzz' };
let foo = parse(req);
//=> { search: '?fizz=buzz',
//=>   query: 'fizz=buzz',
//=>   pathname: '/foo/bar',
//=>   path: '/foo/bar?fizz=buzz',
//=>   href: '/foo/bar?fizz=buzz',
//=>   _raw: '/foo/bar?fizz=buzz' }

// Attaches result for future memoization
assert.deepEqual(foo, req._parsedUrl); //=> true

API

url(req)

Returns: Object or undefined

Important: The req must have a url key, otherwise undefined will be returned.
If no input is provided at all, a TypeError will be thrown.

req

Type: IncomingMessage or Object

The incoming HTTP request (req) or a plain Object with a url key.

Note: In Node.js servers, the req.url begins with a pathname & does not include a hash.
