jQuery Cookie is a Cookies Management plugin that make it easy to read, write and delete cookies in the web app.

Note that this plugin is currently stopped updating. I highly recommend using js-cookie library instead.

How to use it:

1. Include the script after the latest jQuery library.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery-cookie/1.4.1/jquery.cookie.min.js"></script>

2. Usages.

// Create session cookie:

$.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value');

// Create expiring cookie, 7 days from then:

$.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value', { expires: 7 });

// Create expiring cookie, valid across entire site:

$.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value', { expires: 7, path: '/' });

// Read cookie:

$.cookie('the_cookie'); // => "the_value"
$.cookie('not_existing'); // => null

// Delete cookie:
// Returns true when cookie was found, false when no cookie was found...

// Same path as when the cookie was written...
$.removeCookie('the_cookie', { path: '/' });


v1.4.1 (2014-04-28)

v1.4.0 (2013-10-06)

  • Support for AMD.
  • Removed deprecated method $.cookie('name', null) for deleting a cookie, use $.removeCookie('name').
  • $.cookie('name') now returns undefined in case such cookie does not exist (was null). Because the return value is still falsy, testing for existence of a cookie like if ( $.cookie('foo') ) keeps working without change.
  • Renamed bower package definition (component.json -> bower.json) for usage with up-to-date bower.
  • Badly encoded cookies no longer throw exception upon reading but do return undefined (similar to how we handle JSON parse errors with json = true).
  • Added conversion function as optional last argument for reading, so that values can be changed to a different representation easily on the fly.

v1.3.1 (2013-03-24)

  • Fixed issue where it was no longer possible to check for an arbitrary cookie, while json is set to true, there was a SyntaxError thrown from JSON.parse.
  • Fixed issue where RFC 2068 decoded cookies were not properly read.
