RxJS - Filtering Operator skip

This operator will give back an observable that will skip the first occurrence of count items taken as input.


skip(count: number): Observable


count − The argument count is the number of times that the items will be skipped from the source observable.

Return value

It will return an observable that skips values based on the count given.


import { fromEvent, interval } from 'rxjs';

import { skip} from 'rxjs/operators';

let btn = document.getElementById("btnclick");
let btn_clicks = fromEvent(btn, 'click');
let case1 = btn_clicks.pipe(skip(2));
case1.subscribe(x => console.log(x));

We have given count as 2 to skip() operator so the first two clicks are ignored and the third click event is emitted.
