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

Sample usage

import middy from '@middy/core'
import httpUrlEncodeBodyParser from '@middy/http-urlencode-body-parser'

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


// 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) => {
  t.deepEqual(body, {
    frappucino: 'muffin',
    'goat[]': 'scone',
    pond: 'moose'
