Getting the path from a URL in JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the current route path from a URL using JavaScript.

Getting the path

To get the path from a URL, we can use the window.location.pathname property.

The window.location.pathname property returns the relative path from a url as a string format.

Example:

Consider, we have a full URL like this:

https://github.com/saigowthamr/

To get the pathname from the above URL, just run the window.location.pathname.

window.location.pathname;

Output:

"/saigowthamr"
