Here I will explain how to create cookie in jQuery or read cookie or get / set cookie in jQuery or delete cookie in jQuery using jQuery cookie plugin. jQuery cookie plugin is a simple, lightweight jQuery plugin for reading, writing and deleting cookies.

Now I will explain how to create, get/set, delete cookie in jQuery using jQuery cookie plugin.

First download jQuery cookie plugin from this site jQuery cookie and add it to your application then try follow below methods to create, get, delete cookies

Create 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 site:

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

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

Read all available cookies

$.cookie(); // => { "the_cookie": "the_value", "...remaining": "cookies" }
Delete Cookie:

// Returns true when cookie was found, false when no cookie was found...

// Same path as when the cookie was written...
$.removeCookie('the_cookie', { path: '/' });
Available Cookie Options


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 becomes a session cookie.


Define the path where the 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 domain use path: '/'. Default: path of page where the cookie was created.


Domain of page where the cookie was created.


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