Install

``` $ npm install query-string ``` This module targets Node.js 6 or later and the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. If you want support for older browsers, use version 5: npm install query-string@5.

Usage

```js const queryString = require('query-string'); console.log(location.search); //=> '?foo=bar' const parsed = queryString.parse(location.search); console.log(parsed); //=> {foo: 'bar'} console.log(location.hash); //=> '#token=bada55cafe' const parsedHash = queryString.parse(location.hash); console.log(parsedHash); //=> {token: 'bada55cafe'} parsed.foo = 'unicorn'; parsed.ilike = 'pizza'; const stringified = queryString.stringify(parsed); //=> 'foo=unicorn&ilike=pizza' location.search = stringified; // note that location.search automatically prepends a question mark console.log(location.search); //=> '?foo=unicorn&ilike=pizza' ```

API

.parse(string, options)

Parse a query string into an object. Leading ? or # are ignored, so you can pass location.search or location.hash directly. The returned object is created with Object.create(null) and thus does not have a prototype.

decode

Type: boolean
Default: true Decode the keys and values. URI components are decoded with decode-uri-component.

arrayFormat

Type: string
Default: 'none' Supports both index for an indexed array representation or bracket for a bracketed array representation.
  • bracket: stands for parsing correctly arrays with bracket representation on the query string, such as:
```js queryString.parse('foo=1&foo=2&foo=3', {arrayFormat: 'bracket'}); //=> foo: 1,2,3 ```
  • index: stands for parsing taking the index into account, such as:
```js queryString.parse('foo0=1&foo1=2&foo3=3', {arrayFormat: 'index'}); //=> foo: 1,2,3 ```
  • none: is the default option and removes any bracket representation, such as:
```js queryString.parse('foo=1&foo=2&foo=3'); //=> foo: 1,2,3 ```

.stringify(object, options)

Stringify an object into a query string, sorting the keys.

strict

Type: boolean
Default: true Strictly encode URI components with strict-uri-encode. It uses encodeURIComponent if set to false. You probably don't care about this option.

encode

Type: boolean
Default: true URL encode the keys and values.

arrayFormat

Type: string
Default: 'none' Supports both index for an indexed array representation or bracket for a bracketed array representation.
  • bracket: stands for parsing correctly arrays with bracket representation on the query string, such as:
```js queryString.stringify({foo: 1,2,3}, {arrayFormat: 'bracket'}); // => foo=1&foo=2&foo=3 ```
  • index: stands for parsing taking the index into account, such as:
```js queryString.stringify({foo: 1,2,3}, {arrayFormat: 'index'}); // => foo0=1&foo1=2&foo3=3 ```
  • none: is the default option and removes any bracket representation, such as:
```js queryString.stringify({foo: 1,2,3}); // => foo=1&foo=2&foo=3 ```

sort

Type: Function boolean Supports both Function as a custom sorting function or false to disable sorting. ```js const order = 'c', 'a', 'b'; queryString.stringify({ a: 1, b: 2, c: 3}, {
sort: (m, n) => order.indexOf(m) >= order.indexOf(n)
}); // => 'c=3&a=1&b=2' ``` ```js queryString.stringify({ b: 1, c: 2, a: 3}, {sort: false}); // => 'c=3&a=1&b=2' ``` If omitted, keys are sorted using Array#sort, which means, converting them to strings and comparing strings in Unicode code point order.

.extract(string)

Extract a query string from a URL that can be passed into .parse().

.parseUrl(string, options)

Extract the URL and the query string as an object. The options are the same as for .parse(). Returns an object with a url and query property. ```js queryString.parseUrl('https://foo.bar?foo=bar'); //=> {url: 'https://foo.bar', query: {foo: 'bar'}} ```

Nesting

This module intentionally doesn't support nesting as it's not spec'd and varies between implementations, which causes a lot of edge cases. You're much better off just converting the object to a JSON string: ```js queryString.stringify({
foo: 'bar',
nested: JSON.stringify({
unicorn: 'cake'
})
}); //=> 'foo=bar&nested=%7B%22unicorn%22%3A%22cake%22%7D' ``` However, there is support for multiple instances of the same key: ```js queryString.parse('likes=cake&name=bob&likes=icecream'); //=> {likes: 'cake', 'icecream', name: 'bob'} queryString.stringify({color: 'taupe', 'chartreuse', id: '515'}); //=> 'color=chartreuse&color=taupe&id=515' ```

Falsy values

Sometimes you want to unset a key, or maybe just make it present without assigning a value to it. Here is how falsy values are stringified: ```js queryString.stringify({foo: false}); //=> 'foo=false' queryString.stringify({foo: null}); //=> 'foo' queryString.stringify({foo: undefined}); //=> '' ```
