Published on Sep 29, 2022

Hello dev's, today I'll show you how to split string to array separated by any specific character e.g. ",", "." , "+" etc. in a pure javascript way. Sometimes we require to create an array by given string. So, in that case today's tutorial might be helpful. So, let's get started.

Split String to An Array

For splitting string to array we'll use split() method which takes a argument consisting of special character. Let's see the below code snippet.

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport"
          content="width=device-width, user-scalable=no, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
    <title>split string to array - shouts.dev</title>
</head>
<body>
<script>
    var string = "A+B+C+C+D+E+F+G+H";

    console.log(string.split('+'));

</script>
</body>
</html>
