All JS String Methods In One Post!

Hello everybody, I’m Aya Bouchiha, on this beautiful day we’re going to discuss all string methods in
Javascript!

Firstly, we need to know that all All methods do not change the original string, they return a new one.

Hello everybody, I'm Aya Bouchiha, on this beautiful day we're going to discuss all string methods in
Javascript!

Firstly, we need to know that all All methods do not change the original string, they return a new one.

concat()

  • concat() : this method links together two strings or more.
const firstName = 'Aya ';
const lastName = 'Bouchiha';
// 3 methods to concatenate two strings
console.log(firstName.concat(lastName)); // Aya Bouchiha
console.log(firstName +  lastName); // Aya Bouchiha
console.log(`${firstName}${lastName}`); // Aya Bouchiha

match()

  • match(): used to searches a string for a match against a regular expression, and returns the matches as an Array.
const quote =  "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.";
console.log(quote.match(/you/g)) // [ "you", "you", "you" ]

matchAll()

  • matchAll(): returns an iterator of all results matching a string against a regular expression, including capturing groups. more details...
const conversation = `Hi, I'm Aya Bouchiha\nHello, I'm John Doe, nice to meet you.`;

const matchedArrays = [...conversation.matchAll(/I'm\s(?<firstName>[a-zA-Z]+)\s(?<lastName>[a-zA-Z]+)/gi)];

console.log(matchedArrays[0])

for (let matchedArray of matchedArrays) {
  const {firstName, lastName} = matchedArray['groups']
  console.log(firstName, lastName)
}

Output:

[
  "I'm Aya Bouchiha",
  'Aya',
  'Bouchiha',
  index: 4,
  input: "Hi, I'm Aya Bouchiha\nHello, I'm John Doe, nice to meet you.",
  groups: [Object: null prototype] { firstName: 'Aya', lastName: 'Bouchiha' }
]

Aya Bouchiha
John Doe

split()

  • split(separator) : convert a string to an array by splitting it into substrings.
const allLetters = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'; 
console.log(allLetters.split())
console.log(allLetters.split(''))

const emails = 'developer.aya.b@gmail.com,johndoes@gmail.com,simon.dev@gmail.com';
console.log(emails.split(',')) 

Output:

[ 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz' ]

[
  'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f',
  'g', 'h', 'i', 'j', 'k', 'l',
  'm', 'n', 'o', 'p', 'q', 'r',
  's', 't', 'u', 'v', 'w', 'x',
  'y', 'z'
]

[
  'developer.aya.b@gmail.com',
  'johndoes@gmail.com',
  'simon.dev@gmail.com'
]

replace()

  • replace(searchString, newValue): is a method that returns a new string with some or all matches of a pattern replaced by a replacement. The pattern can be a string or a RegExp, and the replacement can be a string or a function to be called for each match. If a pattern is a string, only the first occurrence will be replaced.more details
const email = 'john.doe@gmail.com';
console.log(email.replace('@gmail.com', '')); // john.doe
console.log(email.replace(/@[a-z]+.[a-z]+/g, '')); // john.doe

replaceAll()

  • replaceAll(searchString, newValue): is a method that returns a new string with all matches of a pattern replaced by a replacement. The pattern can be a string or a RegExp, and the replacement can be a string or a function to be called for each match.more details...
const slug = '5-html-tags-that-almost-nobody-knows';
// 5 html tags that almost nobody knows
console.log(slug.replaceAll('-', ' ')); 
// 5 html tags that almost nobody knows
console.log(slug.replaceAll(/-/g, ' ')); 

search()

  • search(valueToSearch) : returns the position (index) of a specific value in a string, if the specific value does not exist in the string, it returns -1.
const quote = 'A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work';
console.log(quote.search('magic')); // 40
console.log(quote.search(/life/g)); // -1

trim()

  • trim() : delete whitespaces & tabs from the start & the end of a string
const inputValue = '  Aya   Bouchiha\t';
console.log(inputValue.trim()); // Aya   Bouchiha

includes()

  • includes(value) : this method checks if a giving value exists in a string. if the value exists, It returns true, otherwise, It returns false
const address = 'Morocco, Rabat';
console.log(address.includes('Morocco'));// true
console.log(address.includes('morocco'));// false
console.log(address.includes('tanger')); // false

toLowerCase()

  • toLowerCase() : this method returns a given string with lowercase letters.
const name = 'AYa BoUCHIha';
console.log(name.toLowerCase()) // aya bouchiha

toUpperCase()

  • toUpperCase() : returns a given string with uppercase letters.
const name = 'AYa BoUCHIha';
console.log(name.toUpperCase()) // AYA BOUCHIHA

toLocaleUpperCase()

  • toLocaleUpperCase() : returns a given string with uppercase letters according to locale-specific case mappings. It's the same thing with toLocaleUpperCase but this one returns the string with uppercase letters.
const turkishSentence = 'iskender kebap';
// ISKENDER KEBAP
console.log(turkishSentence.toUpperCase('en-us')); 
// İSKENDER KEBAP
console.log(turkishSentence.toLocaleUpperCase('tr')) 

repeat()

  • repeat(n) : returns a string repeated n times.
const firstName = 'aya';
console.log(firstName.repeat(3)) // ayaayaaya

slice()

const fullName = 'Aya Bouchiha';
console.log(fullName.slice()) // Aya Bouchiha
console.log(fullName.slice(0,3)) // Aya
console.log(fullName.slice(4,fullName.length)) // Bouchiha

substr()

  • substr(startIndex, length=string.length) : returns a specific part of a string, starting at the specified index and extending for a given number of characters afterwards.
console.log(fullName.substr(0,3)) // Aya
console.log(fullName.substr(4,8)) // Bouchiha

chartAt()

  • chartAt(index = 0) : this method returns the character at a giving index in a string. Note: 0 <= index < string.length
const product = 'laptop';
console.log(product.charAt()) // l
console.log(product.charAt(3)) // t
console.log(product.charAt(10)) // ''

charCodeAt()

  • charCodeAt(index): method returns an integer between 0 and 65535 representing the UTF-16 code unit at the given index.
const product = 'laptop';
console.log(`the character code of ${product.charAt(2)} is is ${product.charCodeAt(2)}`)
// the character code of p is is 112

startsWith()

  • startsWith(valueToSearch, startingIndex = 0) : returns true if a string starts with a giving value, otherwise It returns false;
const phoneNumber = '+212612342187';
console.log(phoneNumber.startsWith('+212')) // true
console.log(phoneNumber.startsWith('6',4)) // true
console.log(phoneNumber.startsWith('6',3)) // false

endsWith()

  • endsWith(valueToSearch, length=string.length) : returns true if a string ends with a giving value, otherwise It returns false;
const address = 'tanger, Morocco';
console.log(address.endsWith('Morocco')); // true
console.log(address.endsWith('Canada')); // false

const gmail = 'developer.aya.b@gmail.com';
const isGmail = gmail.endsWith('@gmail', gmail.length - 4)
console.log(isGmail); // true

fromCharCode()

  • fromCharCode(n1, n2,...) : converts a unicode number to a character.
console.log(String.fromCharCode(112)) // p
console.log(String.fromCharCode(105,106)) // ij

indexOf()

  • indexOf(value, start=0) : returns the position of the first occurrence of a specified value in a string. If the value is not found, It returns -1.
const quote = "very day may not be good... but there's something good in every day";
console.log(quote.indexOf('good')); // 20
console.log(quote.indexOf('good',24)); // 50

lastIndexOf()

  • lastIndexOf(value, start) : returns the position of the last occurrence of a specified value in a string. It searches the string from the end to the beginning, but returns the index s from the beginning, starting at position 0. If the value is not found, It returns -1.
const quote = "very day may not be good... but there's something good in every day";
console.log(quote.lastIndexOf('good')); // 50
console.log(quote.lastIndexOf('good',24)); // 20

localeCompare()

  • localeCompare(stringToCompare, locales) : returns -1, 1, or 0 if the string comes before, after, or is equal in sort order.more details
const word1 = 'feel';
const word2 = 'flee';
// returns -1
// because word1 comes before word2
console.log(word1.localeCompare(word2)) 

valueOf()

  • valueOf() : returns the primitive value of a string.
