Remove key-value pairs from query strings

Share:

Description

URLs often have queries associated with them, particularly URLs for APIs, that look like ?key=value&key=value&key=value. param_remove allows you to remove key/value pairs while leaving the rest of the URL intact.

Usage

1
param_remove(urls, keys)

Arguments

urls

a vector of URLs. These should be decoded with url_decode but don't have to have been otherwise processed.

keys

a vector of parameter keys to remove.

Value

the original URLs but with the key/value pairs specified by keys removed. If the original URL is NA, NA will be returned; if a specified key is NA, nothing will be done with it.

See Also

param_set to modify values associated with keys, or param_get to retrieve those values.

            keys = c("action","format"))
