How to pass parameters to $http in angularjs?


Assume that I have two input boxes with corresponding ng-model as fname and lname. If I call http request as :

$http({method:'GET', url:'/search', params:{fname: fname, lname: lname}})

will it call to the url :


The error I am getting at the backend(python) is :

cannot concatenate str and nontype objects.

Are these parameters not sent as strings? If not, how to get around with this?

The Best Answer is


Here is how you do it:

$http.get("/url/to/resource/", {params:{"param1": val1, "param2": val2}})
    .then(function (response) { /* */ })...

Angular takes care of encoding the parameters.

Maxim Shoustin's answer does not work ({method:'GET', url:'/search', jsonData} is not a valid JavaScript literal) and JeyTheva's answer, although simple, is dangerous as it allows XSS (unsafe values are not escaped when you concatenate them).

Build URL '/search' as string. Like


Actually I didn't use

 `$http({method:'GET', url:'/search', params:{fname: fname, lname: lname}})` 

but I'm sure "params" should be JSON.stringify like for POST

var jsonData = JSON.stringify(
        fname: fname,
        lname: lname 


  params: jsonData
