tiny-params

A tiny URL param parser, suitable for server or browser

highlights

  • it's tiny (< 25 sloc)
  • it's highly browser compatible (IE6 and everything else)
  • it ships with both ES6 and CommonJS modules
  • it makes repeated keys an array ?a=1&a=2 -> { a: [1, 2] }
  • it handles explicit arrays ?a[]=1 -> { a: [1] }
  • it handles flags (key with no value) ?a=b&flag -> { a: 'b', flag: true }
  • it decodes encodeURIComponent encoded items
  • it converts booleans and numbers from strings
  • it converts the values 'null' and 'undefined' to null
  • it respects the hash (as per RFC 3986)
  • it's competitively fast (not the fastest, not far from it)

lowlights

  • it looks like code golf, kind of is
  • it uses decodeURIComponent (sparingly) which is slow (but highly compatible)
