Zepto Cookie Plugin

A simple plugin to read, set, and delete cookies. This plugin extends Zepto.js with a $.cookie method.

It is a modification of the jQuery-Cookie plugin made to work with Zepto.


Simply include the script in your site's template after zepto.min.js:

<script type="text/javascript" src="zepto.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="zepto.cookie.min.js"></script>

Alternatively, you can build the plugin directly into the Zepto library itself. To do so, copy zepto.cookie.js into the zepto/src/ folder of the Zepto project. Then build Zepto as you normally would using the rake concat command:

rake concat[zepto.cookie] dist

This will result in a build the default Zepto library, with the inclusion of Zepto Cookie. Grab the regular or minified version of zepto.js from the zepto/dist/ folder and include the library as you normally would.

<script type="text/javascript" src="zepto.min.js"></script>

You can then use Zepto Cookie as you normally would.


Use as such: $.fn.cookie(key, value, options);

key (string), The name of the cookie you want to read/ set.

value (string), The value of the cookie you're setting.

options (object), Additional cookie parameters such as expires, path, or domain.


$.fn.cookie('foo', 'bar');

Sets a cookie with the name of foo to the value of bar.


Reads the value of a cookie. If ran after the first example, would return bar.

$.fn.cookie('foo', null);

Deletes (expires) the cookie with the name of foo.

$.fn.cookie('foo', 'bar', { expires: 7 });

Sets the cookie foo with value bar, set to expire in 7 days.


The options argument is an object which supports the following properties:

{ expires : 7 }

The lifespan of the cookie in days. Takes an integer. Defaults to being a session cookie.

{ path: '/foo' }

The path for which the cookie is valid. If not specified, the cookie defaults to the path on which the cookie was set.

{ domain: '' }

The domain for which the cookie is valid. If not specified, the cookie defaults to the domain on which the cookie was set.

{ secure: true }

Whether the cookie requries a secure connection (https). Defaults to false.

{ raw: true }

Whether or not to URI encode the cookie value. Defaults to false.
