cookie-getter

cookie-getter

Minimalist (<10 LOC), performant, clientside cookie reader module and nothing else. It is tolerant of being required server-side. It will simply returns null if called within node.

Why publish another cookie tool?

Dead simple function that has the best performance according to: http://jsperf.com/cookie-parsing

Handy to have as a separate module for easy installation with npm.

Usage

installing:

npm install cookie-getter

using:

var cookies = require('cookie-getter');
 
// returns the value of the cookie if it's just a simple string 
var username = cookies('username');
 
// if the cookie is a JSON string it will parse it as well 
user = cookies('user');
 
console.log(user.firstName); // logs out name of firstName value if encoded as JSON in cookie.
