Urlencode body parser middleware for the middy framework

Middy http-urlencode-body-parser middleware

Middy logo

HTTP URLencode body parser middleware for the middy framework, the stylish Node.js middleware engine for AWS Lambda

This middleware automatically parses HTTP requests with URL-encoded body (typically the result of a form submit).


To install this middleware you can use NPM:

npm install --save @middy/http-urlencode-body-parser


  • extended (boolean) (optional): if true will use qs to parse the body of the request. By default is set to false

Sample usage

const middy = require('@middy/core')
const httpUrlEncodeBodyParser = require('@middy/http-urlencode-body-parser')

const handler = middy((event, context, cb) => {
  cb(null, event.body) // propagates the body as response

handler.use(httpUrlEncodeBodyParser({extended: false}))

// When Lambda runs the handler with a sample event...
const event = {
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'
  body: 'frappucino=muffin&goat%5B%5D=scone&pond=moose'

handler(event, {}, (_, body) => {
    frappucino: 'muffin',
    'goat[]': 'scone',
    pond: 'moose'
