Lua library for HTTP cookie manipulations for OpenResty/ngx_lua

Name

lua-resty-cookie - This library parses HTTP Cookie header for Nginx and returns each field in the cookie.

This library is production ready.

Synopsis

        lua_package_path "/path/to/lua-resty-cookie/lib/?.lua;;";
    
        server {
            location /test {

                    local ck = require "resty.cookie"
                    local cookie, err = ck:new()
                    if not cookie then
                        ngx.log(ngx.ERR, err)
                        return
                    end
    
                    -- get single cookie
                    local field, err = cookie:get("lang")
                    if not field then
                        ngx.log(ngx.ERR, err)
                        return
                    end
                    ngx.say("lang", " => ", field)
    
                    -- get all cookies
                    local fields, err = cookie:get_all()
                    if not fields then
                        ngx.log(ngx.ERR, err)
                        return
                    end
    
                    for k, v in pairs(fields) do
                        ngx.say(k, " => ", v)
                    end
    
                    -- set one cookie
                    local ok, err = cookie:set({
                        key = "Name", value = "Bob", path = "/",
                        domain = "example.com", secure = true, httponly = true,
                        expires = "Wed, 09 Jun 2021 10:18:14 GMT", max_age = 50,
                        samesite = "Strict", extension = "a4334aebaec"
                    })
                    if not ok then
                        ngx.log(ngx.ERR, err)
                        return
                    end
    
                    -- set another cookie, both cookies will appear in HTTP response
                    local ok, err = cookie:set({
                        key = "Age", value = "20",
                    })
                    if not ok then
                        ngx.log(ngx.ERR, err)
                        return
                    end
                ';
            }
        }

Methods

new

syntax: cookie_obj = cookie()

Create a new cookie object for current request. You can get parsed cookie from client or set cookie to client later using this object.

get

syntax: cookie_val, err = cookie_obj:get(cookie_name)

Get a single client cookie value. On error, returns nil and an error message.

get_all

syntax: fields, err = cookie_obj:get_all()

Get all client cookie key/value pairs in a lua table. On error, returns nil and an error message.

set

    syntax: ok, err = cookie_obj:set({
        key = "Name",
        value = "Bob",
        path = "/",
        domain = "example.com",
        secure = true, httponly = true,
        expires = "Wed, 09 Jun 2021 10:18:14 GMT",
        max_age = 50,
        samesite = "Strict",
        extension = "a4334aebaec"
    })

Set a cookie to client. This will add a new 'Set-Cookie' response header. key and value are required, all other fields are optional. If the same cookie (whole cookie string, e.g. "Name=Bob; Expires=Wed, 09 Jun 2021 10:18:14 GMT; Max-Age=50; Domain=example.com; Path=/; Secure; HttpOnly;") has already been setted, new cookie will be ignored.

Installation

You need to compile ngx_lua with your Nginx.

You need to configure the lua_package_path directive to add the path of your lua-resty-cookie source tree to ngx_lua's Lua module search path, as in

    # nginx.conf
    http {
        lua_package_path "/path/to/lua-resty-cookie/lib/?.lua;;";
        ...
    }

and then load the library in Lua:

    local ck = require "resty.cookie"
