npm install preserve-qs
yarn add preserve-qs
Imagine that we have the URL
/foo/bar?beep=boop&limit=25 and we wish to redirect the user (or simply output) a new URL with pathname of
/foo/baz – but also preserve the original querystring.
The examples below show how this package can be used for this, regardless of the environment being run in.
We assume you have imported the package in all these examples:
const preserveQs = ;
;// ctx.redirect(preserveQs(ctx, '/foo/baz'));
;// res.redirect(preserveQs(req, '/foo/baz'));
If you wish to override a property in the querystring, either from the original or the new URL, then you can pass a third argument of an object.
In the example above, the output would have the
?hello=false be overriden and become
If you wish to completely strip a single property or multiple from being included in the querystring then pass it as the third or fourth argument.
This would strip the
limit from the URL (e.g. it would not have
?page=1&limit=10 in the URL).
You can also combine this with the
override argument by invoking in order as
preserveQs(req, url, override, blacklist).
