ES6 - String Method split()


Advertisements


This method splits a String object into an array of strings by separating the string into substrings.

Syntax

string.split([separator][, limit]); 

Argument Details

  • separator − Specifies the character to use for separating the string. Ifseparator is omitted, the array returned contains one element consisting of the entire string.

  • limit − Integer specifying a limit on the number of splits to be found.

Return Value

The split method returns the new array. Also, when the string is empty, split returns an array containing one empty string, rather than an empty array.

Example

var str = "Apples are round, and apples are juicy."; 
var splitted = str.split(" ", 3); 
console.log(splitted)   

Output

[ 'Apples', 'are', 'round,' ]
