REPL Exercise

Parse query parameters

URLs can have optional query parameters. They are the key-value pairs that follow the path.

Write a function that takes a URL (represented as a string) and parses out the query parameters into a hashmap.

Notes:

  • The query string is the string containing the query parameters. It appears after the ? and before a #. Ex: https://lispcast.com/search?q=clojure#page2
  • The keys and values are URL Encoded. You can use java.net.URLDecoder/decode to decode them.
  • The key-value pairs are separated by &. Ex: a=1&b=2
  • Each key-value pair contains the key, followed by =, followed by the value. Ex: a=1

Bonus:

Query parameters can contain duplicate keys. Handle them gracefully.
