Requirements

The below requirements are only if you want to save and load json objects to cookie, if not you can save raw data.

Usage

###Create a cookie var cookie = new jecookie('cookie_name'); var cookie = new jecookie('cookie_name', {name : 'value'}, {secure :true, domain : '.example.org'});

Params:

  • data: data
  • opts: options
    • opts.secure set secure
    • opts.domain domain
    • opts.path path
    • opts.expires expiration, use 0 to session cookie

###Load a cookie cookie.load();

cookie.data = {name : value, content : value};
