JavaScript: Get an object containing the parameters of the current URL

JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-51 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to get an object containing the parameters of the current URL.

  • Use String.prototype.match() with an appropriate regular expression to get all key-value pairs.
  • Use Array.prototype.reduce() to map and combine them into a single object.
  • Pass location.search as the argument to apply to the current url.

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2 
  const get_URL_Parameters = url =>
  (url.match(/([^?=&]+)(=([^&]*))/g) || []).reduce(
    (a, v) => ((a[v.slice(0, v.indexOf('='))] = v.slice(v.indexOf('=') + 1)), a),
    {}
  );
console.log(get_URL_Parameters('http://url.com/page?name=Adam&surname=Smith')); 
console.log(get_URL_Parameters('google.com'));
console.log(get_URL_Parameters('https://www.w3resource.com'));

Sample Output:

{"name":"Adam","surname":"Smith"}
{}
{}

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

How to remove a specific item from an array?

Find the index of the array element you want to remove using indexOf, and then remove that index with splice.

The splice() method changes the contents of an array by removing existing elements and/or adding new elements.

const array = [2, 5, 9];

console.log(array);

const index = array.indexOf(5);
if (index > -1) {
  array.splice(index, 1);
}

// array = [2, 9]
console.log(array);

The second parameter of splice is the number of elements to remove. Note that splice modifies the array in place and returns a new array containing the elements that have been removed.

For the reason of completeness, here are functions. The first function removes only a single occurrence (i.e. removing the first match of 5 from [2,5,9,1,5,8,5]), while the second function removes all occurrences:

function removeItemOnce(arr, value) {
  var index = arr.indexOf(value);
  if (index > -1) {
    arr.splice(index, 1);
  }
  return arr;
}

function removeItemAll(arr, value) {
  var i = 0;
  while (i < arr.length) {
    if (arr[i] === value) {
      arr.splice(i, 1);
    } else {
      ++i;
    }
  }
  return arr;
}
//Usage
console.log(removeItemOnce([2,5,9,1,5,8,5], 5))
console.log(removeItemAll([2,5,9,1,5,8,5], 5))
