req.path, but it also includes the query string suffix.
req.url; // => "/search?q=worlds%20largest%20dogs"
- It is worth mentioning that the URL fragment/hash (e.g. "#some/clientside/route") part of the URL is not available on the server. This is an open issue with the current HTTP specification. As a result, if you write an action to redirect from one subdomain to another, for instance, you won't be able to peek at the URL fragment in that action.
- However, if you respond with a 302 redirect (i.e.
res.redirect()), the user agent on the other end will preserve the URL fragment/hash and tack it on to the end of the new redirected URL. In many cases, this is exactly what you want!
