This question was already asked a few years ago, and the way of doing it was through a plugin. I was wondering if there is a way of doing it just using Craft and Twig.

I set up a cookie using JavaScript, and I want to read it with Craft. Is this possible?

Assuming this is for Craft 3, you can do something like this from a template to loop through all available cookies for a site:

{% set cookies = craft.app.request.getCookies() %}

{% for cookie in cookies %}
    {{ cookie.name }}
{% endfor %}
  • That seems to work, but I get back 'CRAFT_CSRF_TOKEN'. I am expecting another value. {% set cookies = craft.app.request.getCookies('invited') %} I'm requesting the cookie like that.

    @JSosa getCookies() returns the collection of cookies. The cookie you want would be cookies['invited'] out of the returned set. Reference: yiiframework.com/doc/api/2.0/…

If you want a specific cookie instead of the set of cookies, you'd use

Old Craft 3 Syntax:

{% set specificCookie = craft.app.request.getCookie('specificCookie') %}

Deprecation Replacement (for Craft 4 compatibility):
