Getting the last segment of an URL in JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the last segment of a URL or path using JavaScript.

Consider, we have the following URL:

const url = "https://google.com/music/playlist";

To get the last segment playlist from an above URL, we can use the split() method by passing a / as an argument and we need to call the pop() method on it.

Example:

const url = "https://google.com/music/playlist";

const lastSegment = url.split("/").pop();

console.log(lastSegment); // "playlist"

Explanation

The split() method first splits the url into an array of elements separated by the / then pop () method helps us to get the last element of an array (that is our url last segment).

Similarly, we can also get the last segment by using the combination of substring(), lastIndexOf() methods.

const url = "https://google.com/music/playlist";

const lastSegment = url.substring(url.lastIndexOf("/") + 1);

console.log(lastSegment); // "playlist"

Sometimes, if you have an url that ends with a / then you can get the last segment like this.

const url = "https://reactgo.com/reactrouter/tutorial/";

const last = url.split("/")

console.log(last[last.length-2]); // "tutorial"
