API Routes

Analog supports defining API routes that can be used to serve data to the application.

Defining an API Route

API routes are defined in the src/server/routes folder. API routes are also filesystem based, and are exposed under the default /api prefix in development.

import { defineEventHandler } from 'h3';

export default defineEventHandler(() => ({ message: 'Hello World' }));

Defining XML Content

To create an RSS feed for your site, set the content-type to be text/xml and Analog serves up the correct content type for the route.


import { defineEventHandler, setHeader } from 'h3';
export default defineEventHandler((event) => {
  const feedString = `<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version="2.0">
  setHeader(event, 'content-type', 'text/xml');
  return feedString;

Note: For SSG content, set Analog to prerender an API route to make it available as prerendered content:

// vite.config.ts
prerender: {
  routes: async () => {
    return [
  sitemap: {
    host: '',

The XML is available as a static XML document at /dist/analog/public/api/rss.xml

Custom API prefix

The prefix under which API routes are exposed can be configured with the apiPrefix parameter passed to the analog vite plugin.

export default defineConfig(({ mode }) => {
  return {
    plugins: [
        apiPrefix: 'services',

With this configuration, Analog exposes the API routes under the /services prefix.

A route defined in src/server/routes/v1/hello.ts can now be accessed at /services/v1/hello.

Dynamic API Routes

Dynamic API routes are defined by using the filename as the route path enclosed in square brackets. Parameters can be accessed via event.context.params.

// /server/routes/v1/hello/[name].ts
import { defineEventHandler } from 'h3';

export default defineEventHandler(
  (event) => `Hello ${event.context.params?.['name']}!`

Another way to access route parameters is by using the getRouterParam function.

// /server/routes/v1/hello/[name].ts
import { defineEventHandler, getRouterParam } from 'h3';

export default defineEventHandler((event) => {
  const name = getRouterParam(event, 'name');
  return `Hello, ${name}!`;

Specific HTTP request method

File names can be suffixed with .get, .post, .put, .delete, etc. to match the specific HTTP request method.


// /server/routes/v1/users/[id].get.ts
import { defineEventHandler, getRouterParam } from 'h3';

export default defineEventHandler(async (event) => {
  const id = getRouterParam(event, 'id');
  // TODO: fetch user by id
  return `User profile of ${id}!`;


// /server/routes/v1/
import { defineEventHandler, readBody } from 'h3';

export default defineEventHandler(async (event) => {
  const body = await readBody(event);
  // TODO: Handle body and add user
  return { updated: true };

The h3 JSDocs provide more info and utilities, including readBody.

Requests with Query Parameters

Sample query /api/v1/query?param1=Analog&param2=Angular

// routes/v1/query.ts
import { defineEventHandler, getQuery } from 'h3';

export default defineEventHandler((event) => {
  const { param1, param2 } = getQuery(event);
  return `Hello, ${param1} and ${param2}!`;

Catch-all Routes

Catch-all routes are helpful for fallback route handling.

// routes/[...].ts
export default defineEventHandler((event) => `Default page`);

Error Handling

If no errors are thrown, a status code of 200 OK will be returned. Any uncaught errors will return a 500 Internal Server Error HTTP Error. To return other error codes, throw an exception with createError

// routes/v1/[id].ts
import { defineEventHandler, getRouterParam, createError } from 'h3';

export default defineEventHandler((event) => {
  const param = getRouterParam(event, 'id');
  const id = parseInt(param ? param : '');
  if (!Number.isInteger(id)) {
    throw createError({
      statusCode: 400,
      statusMessage: 'ID should be an integer',
  return `ID is ${id}`;

Accessing Cookies

Analog allows setting and reading cookies in your server-side calls.

Setting cookies

import { setCookie } from 'h3';
import { PageServerLoad } from '@analogjs/router';

import { Product } from '../products';

export const load = async ({ fetch, event }: PageServerLoad) => {
  setCookie(event, 'products', 'loaded'); // setting the cookie
  const products = await fetch<Product[]>('/api/v1/products');

  return {
    products: products,

Reading cookies

import { parseCookies } from 'h3';
import { PageServerLoad } from '@analogjs/router';

export const load = async ({ event }: PageServerLoad) => {
  const cookies = parseCookies(event);

  console.log('products cookie', cookies['products']);

  return {
    shipping: true,
