How to create an object containing the parameters of the current URL?

If you want to get the current URL parameters in an object format, you can use the following JavaScript code:

const urlSearchParams = new URLSearchParams(;
const params = Object.fromEntries(urlSearchParams.entries());

This code gets the current URL search parameters using the URLSearchParams constructor and then converts them into an object using the Object.fromEntries method.


The property returns the query string part of the current URL, including the question mark (?).

The URLSearchParams constructor creates a new instance of the URLSearchParams object, which represents a collection of key-value pairs that can be accessed by name. It takes a string parameter that contains the query string.

The Object.fromEntries method creates a new object from an array of key-value pairs. It takes an iterable object (such as an array) of key-value pairs and returns a new object with properties that correspond to those entries.

Other ways to do it:

  • You can also use the split() method to split the query string into an array of key-value pairs and then convert it into an object using a loop.
  • You can use a third-party library such as qs or hapijs/qs to parse and stringify query strings.

Here is an example code using the split() method:

const queryString =;
const params = {};

if (queryString) {
  queryString.split('&').forEach((pair) => {
    const parts = pair.split('=');
    const key = decodeURIComponent(parts[0]);
    const value = decodeURIComponent(parts[1]);
    params[key] = value;


This code first checks if there is a query string using the if statement. If the query string exists, it splits it into an array of key-value pairs using the split('&') method. Then, it loops over each pair, splits it into two parts using the split('=') method, and decodes them using the decodeURIComponent() method. Finally, it adds each key-value pair to the params object.
