Standard URL API available on all Expo-supported platforms.

Web

The standard URL API is available on all Expo-supported platforms.

Installation

This API is part of the expo package. On native platforms, built-in URL and URLSearchParams implementations replace the shims in react-native. Refer to the browser and server runtime support for web and Node.js.

Usage

const url = new URL('https://expo.dev');

const params = new URLSearchParams();

Conformance

Expo's built-in URL support attempts to be fully spec compliant.

The only missing exception is that native platforms do not currently support non-ASCII characters in the hostname.

Consider the following example:

console.log(new URL('http://🥓').toString());

This outputs the following:

  • Web, Node.js: http://xn--pr9h/
  • iOS, Android: http://🥓/
