URL parser

URL parser

A URL parser is a tool that is designed to dissect and analyze Uniform Resource Locators (URLs). A URL is a reference or address used to locate resources on the internet. It is composed of several components, including the protocol (such as "http" or "https"), domain name, port, path, query parameters, and fragments.

The URL parser tool takes a URL as input and breaks it down into its individual components, providing an easy way to extract information from the URL. This can be particularly useful in various programming and scripting scenarios, such as web development, data scraping, API integration, and more. By parsing URLs, developers can access specific parts of the URL, manipulate them, and make informed decisions based on the information contained within.

For example, a URL parser tool might be able to extract the protocol, domain name, path, and query parameters from the following URL:


In this case, the parser would identify "https" as the protocol, "www.waytolearnx.com" as the domain, "/products" as the path, and "page=2&category=electronics" as the query parameters.

URL parser tools can be standalone applications, libraries, or functions integrated into programming languages to make URL handling and manipulation more convenient and efficient.
