Handle cookies without jQuery. jQuery.cookie without jQuery dependency.

I've just had to use cookie in a banner, but the owner of the site placed the jQuery include after my include.
That's why I got my jQuery predefined and my .cookie() method disappeared.
Here is why I simply added jQuery.extend implementation in jQuery.cookie moethod and assigned it to a separate var.
This is a simple solution to get your code working without jQuery if it only depends on .cookie method.

jQcookie = function(key, value, options) {
if (arguments.length > 1 && String(value) !== "[object Object]") {
extendObject = function extend() {
for (var i = 1; i < arguments.length; i++)
for (var key in arguments[i])
if (arguments[i].hasOwnProperty(key))
arguments[0][key] = arguments[i][key];
return arguments[0];
options = extendObject({}, options);
if (value === null || value === undefined) {
options.expires = -1;
if (typeof options.expires === 'number') {
var days = options.expires, t = options.expires = new Date();
t.setDate(t.getDate() + days);
value = String(value);
return (document.cookie = [encodeURIComponent(key), '=', options.raw ? value : encodeURIComponent(value), options.expires ? '; expires=' + options.expires.toUTCString() : '', options.path ? '; path=' + options.path : '', options.domain ? '; domain=' + options.domain : '', options.secure ? '; secure' : ''].join(''));
options = value || {};
var result, decode = options.raw ? function(s) {
return s;
} : decodeURIComponent;
return (result = new RegExp('(?:^|; )' + encodeURIComponent(key) + '=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie)) ? decode(result[1]) : null;
