jquery-deparam

Inverse of jQuery's $.param method to convert a querystring into a javascript object

jquery-deparam

Extracted $.deparam from Ben Alman's jquery-bbq with license info included. Deparam is the inverse of jquery's $.param method. It takes a parameterized querystring and converts it back into an object. The format is in many ways a more compact way to serialize a javascript object over JSON. For example (from the included tests):

var paramStr = 'a[]=4&a[]=5&a[]=6&b[x][]=7&b[y]=8&b[z][]=9&b[z][]=0&b[z][]=true&b[z][]=false&b[z][]=undefined&b[z][]=&c=1';
var paramsObj = {
    a: ['4','5','6'],
    b:{
        x:['7'],
        y:'8',
        z:['9','0','true','false','undefined','']
    },
    c:'1'
};
 
deparam(paramStr).should.deep.equal(paramsObj);
