How to get first character of a string in JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the first character of a string in JavaScript.

Getting the first character

To get the first character of a string, we can use the charAt() method by passing 0 as an argument in JavaScript.

The charAt() method accepts the character index as an argument and return its value in the string.

Strings are the squence of characters, so the first character index of a string is 0.

const str = "helicopter";

const firstCharacter = str.charAt(0);
console.log(firstCharacter); // "h"

Similarly, we can use square brackets [] syntax to get the first character of a string.

const str = "helicopter";

const firstCharacter = str[0];

console.log(firstCharacter); // "h"
