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

npm version Known Vulnerabilities Standard Code Style Chat on Gitter

This middleware automatically parses HTTP requests with URL-encoded paths. This can happen when using path variables (ie /{name}/) for an endpoint and the UI encodeURIComponent the values before making the request.


To install this middleware you can use NPM:

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



Sample usage

import middy from '@middy/core'
import httpUrlEncodePathParser from '@middy/http-urlencode-path-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 = {

  pathParameters: {
    name: encodeURIComponent('Mîddy')

handler(event, {}, (_, body) => {
  t.deepEqual(body, {
    name: 'Mîddy'
