The default blueprint for ember-cli addons.

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import emberQueryParamHelpers from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/ember-query-param-helpers';



This add-on provides a few helpers to help tame query params in your Ember app. Query params in Ember are sticky and require knowing default values so that you properly reset them. Using the built-in query-param helper will not remove the existing values either. This add-on makes it easier to reset and set query params. Please see the following documentation, and the live dummy app, for more examples of how these helpers can be used.


ember install ember-query-param-helpers

Note: Ember versions >= 2.4 and <2.15 also require the ember-router-service-pollyfill

ember install ember-router-service-polyfill

This dependency on the public router service is due to this addon using the router service to look up the current route.


This add-on provides the following template helpers to be used in conjunction with {{link-to}} or {{href-to}}.


This helper allows you to reset the query params to their default values. By default it will use the current route and its hierarchy for the current query params to reset.

Note: The query params being selected by the helper must be compatible with the consuming {{link-to}} route specified.

Reset all query params

{{link-to "Link!" current-route" (reset-query-params)}}

Reset whitelisted query params

{{link-to "Link!" "current-route" (reset-query-params "specificQueryParam")}}

Reset query params for specific route

By default reset-query-params does not know the route it is being linked to and will default to the current route. This is useful when the query params are being used for the current route's hierarchy, ie: sort and filter query params. In the case the link-to is navigating to a different route and you need to reset to its default query params you can pass the route argument.

{{link-to "Link!" "some-other-route" (reset-query-params route="some-other-route")}}


Similar to the regular query-params helper but is flexible in that it can accept an object of query param key/value pairs or named arguments (similar usage to the query-params helper). The behaviour of this helper is to only create or overwrite existing values of query params.

Query Params via Object

{{link-to "Link!" "route" (create-query-params qps)}}

Where qps could be a reference to an object, for example:

    sort: "DESC",
    page: 5

Query Params via Named Arguments

Similar to the default behaviour of query-params:

{{link-to "Link!" "route" (create-query-params sort="DESC" page=5)}}


In the case you want to combine behaviours from create-query-params and reset-query-params you can use merge-query-params . This helper will merge the resulting query param operations in order, and will ensure that the returned object is compatible with what what link-to expects. This will enable use-cases where you may want to reset all, or a specific query params, and then create, or overwrite, specific query param values.

{{link-to "Link!" parent.child"
        (create-query-params childQp="only-child-qp-is-set")
