A plugin for Fastify that adds support for reading and setting cookies.

This plugin's cookie parsing works via Fastify's preHandler hook. Therefore, you should register it prior to any other preHandler hooks that will depend upon this plugin's actions.


const fastify = require('fastify')()
fastify.register(require('fastify-cookie'), (err) => {
  if (err) throw err
fastify.get('/', (req, reply) => {
  const aCookieValue = req.cookies.cookieName
    .setCookie('foo', 'foo', {
      domain: '',
      path: '/'
    .send({hello: 'world'})



Cookies are parsed in the preHandler Fastify hook and attached to the request as an object named cookies. Thus, if a request contains the header Cookie: foo=foo then, within your handler, would equal 'foo'.


The method setCookie(name, value, options) is added to the reply object via the Fastify decorateReply API. Thus, in a request handler, reply.setCookie('foo', 'foo', {path: '/'}) will set a cookie named foo with a value of 'foo' on the cookie path /.

  • name: a string name for the cookie to be set
  • value: a string value for the cookie
  • options: an options object as described in the cookie serialize documentation
