Enables getting, setting and removing cookies from the ProcessWire API using `$input->cookie`.
- Whether getting or setting, cookie values are always strings.
- Values retrieved from
$input->cookieare user input (like PHP’s $_COOKIE) and need to be sanitized and validated by you.
- When removing/unsetting cookies, the path, domain, secure, and httponly options must be the same as when the cookie was set,
as a result, it’s good to have these things predefined in
$config->cookieOptionsrather than setting during runtime.
- Note that this class does not manage PW’s session cookies.
