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.
const url = "https://google.com/music/playlist"; const lastSegment = url.split("/").pop(); console.log(lastSegment); // "playlist"
split() method first splits the
url into an array of elements separated by the
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
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"
