Easy cookie handling using jQuery.


  • $.cookie('the_cookie');: return the value of the cookie
  • $.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value');: set the value of a cookie
  • $.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value', { expires: 7, path: '/', domain: 'jquery.com', secure: true });: create a cookie with all available options.
  • $.cookie('the_cookie', null);: delete a cookie by passing null as value. Keep in mind that you have to use the same path and domain used when the cookie was set.


  • expires: either an integer specifying the expiration date from now on in days or a Date object. If a negative value is specified (e.g. a date in the past), the cookie will be deleted. If set to null or omitted, the cookie will be a session cookie and will not be retained when the the browser exits.
  • path: the value of the path atribute of the cookie (default: path of page that created the cookie).
  • domain: the value of the domain attribute of the cookie (default: domain of page that created the cookie).
  • secure: if true, the secure attribute of the cookie will be set and the cookie transmission will require a secure protocol (like HTTPS).
