Node.js – How to get GET (query string) variables in Express.js on Node.js


Can we get the variables in the query string in Node.js just like we get them in $_GET in PHP?

I know that in Node.js we can get the URL in the request. Is there a method to get the query string parameters?

Best Solution

Since you've mentioned Express.js in your tags, here is an Express-specific answer: use req.query. E.g.

var express = require('express');
var app = express();

app.get('/', function(req, res){
  res.send('id: ' +;
