string-to-query-params(string)

Build Status Coverage Status

This is a port of the PrototypeJS method toQueryParams. It parses a URI-like query string and returns an object composed of parameter/value pairs. There's an inverse of this method called toQueryString that's available at object-to-query-string.

string-to-query-params is really targeted at parsing query strings (hence the default value of "&" for the separator argument). For this reason, it does not consider anything that is either before a question mark (which signals the beginning of a query string) or beyond the hash symbol ("#"), and runs decodeURIComponent() on each parameter/value pair.

string-to-query-params also aggregates the values of identical keys into an array of values.

Note that parameters which do not have a specified value will be set to undefined.

Installation

npm install string-to-query-params

Usage

var toQueryParams = require("string-to-query-params");

toQueryParams('section=blog&id=45');
// -> {section: 'blog', id: '45'}

toQueryParams('section=blog;id=45', ';');
// -> {section: 'blog', id: '45'}

toQueryParams('http://www.example.com?section=blog&id=45#comments');
// -> {section: 'blog', id: '45'}

toQueryParams('section=blog&tag=javascript&tag=prototype&tag=doc');
// -> {section: 'blog', tag: ['javascript', 'prototype', 'doc']}

toQueryParams('tag=ruby%20on%20rails');
// -> {tag: 'ruby on rails'}

toQueryParams('id=45&raw');
// -> {id: '45', raw: undefined}
