What is Cookie Consent?

Cookie Consent is a lightweight JavaScript plugin for alerting users about the use of cookies on your website.

It is designed to help you comply with the hideous EU Cookie Law and not make you want to kill yourself in the process. So we made it fast, free, and relatively painless.

Warning: Phishing attempt

Several users have been emailed with a phishing attempt trying to get them to move the URL they link to from the cdnjs link that is provided on our website as cdnjs is "going away". This is not associated with us and will most likely result in malicious sideloaded code on your website.

Version 3.0

Version 3.0 is a complete rewrite from version 2. The most substantial new features are:

  • the ability to GeoLocate and only show the addon to people in the relevant countries
  • callback hooks for showing/accepting/revoking the banner
  • support for different types of compliance, giving you the flexibility to obey even the strictest cookie laws
  • easy no-fuss themes and customisable styles

Contributing

The easiest way to develop is to host the files with a local webserver. e.g.

python -m SimpleHTTPServer

We use Gulp to compile the SCSS and minify the JavaScript. You can run a build with:
