jquery.cookie

A simple, lightweight jQuery plugin for reading, writing and deleting cookies.

Installation

Include script after the jQuery library (unless you are packaging scripts somehow else):

<script src="/path/to/jquery.cookie.js"></script>

Usage

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 page:

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

Read cookie:

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

Delete cookie by passing null as value:

$.cookie('the_cookie', null);

Options

expires: 365

Define lifetime of the cookie. Value can be a Number (which will be interpreted as days from time of creation) or a Date object. If omitted, the cookie is a session cookie.

path: '/'

Default: path of page where the cookie was created.

Define the path where cookie is valid. By default the path of the cookie is the path of the page where the cookie was created (standard browser behavior). If you want to make it available for instance across the entire page use path: '/'. If you want to delete a cookie with a particular path, you need to include that path in the call.

domain: 'example.com'

Default: domain of page where the cookie was created.

secure: true

Default: false. If true, the cookie transmission requires a secure protocol (https).

raw: true

Default: false.

By default the cookie is encoded/decoded when creating/reading, using encodeURIComponent/decodeURIComponent. Turn off by setting raw: true.
