How to use this plugin

//To set a 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);

// Creating cookie with all availabl options
$.cookie('myCookie2', 'myValue2', { expires: 7, path: '/', domain: '', secure: true, raw: true });

Available Options


  • expires: 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: 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: ‘/’.
  • domain: Domain of page where the cookie was created.
  • secure: Default: false. If true, the cookie transmission requires a secure protocol (https).
  • raw: By default the cookie is encoded/decoded when creating/reading, using encodeURIComponent/ decodeURIComponent. Turn off by setting raw: true.
