JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Shorten an array using its length property

A great way of shortening an array is by redefining its length property.

let array = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 8, 9]
array.length = 4
// Result: [0, 1, 2, 3]

Important to know though is that this is a destructive way of changing the array. This means you lose all the other values that used to be in the array.
