How to split URL Using JavaScript

You can get all window location key values using this window.location 

const paths = window.location
Location {ancestorOrigins: DOMStringList, href: "http://localhost:5000/new-url", origin: "http://localhost:5000", protocol: "http:", host: "localhost:5000", …}
ancestorOrigins: DOMStringList {length: 0}
assign: ƒ assign()
hash: ""
host: "localhost:5000"
hostname: "localhost"
href: "http://localhost:5000/new-url"
origin: "http://localhost:5000"
pathname: "/new-url"
port: "5000"
protocol: "http:"
reload: ƒ reload()
replace: ƒ replace()
search: ""

Get the full URL

var newURL = window.location.protocol + "//" + + "/" + window.location.pathname +

If you need to break up up the pathname, for example, a URL like you can split the string on “/” characters

var pathArray = window.location.pathname.split('/');

Then access the different parts by the parts of the array, like

var secondLevelLocation = pathArray[0];

To put that pathname back together, you can stitch together the array and put the “/”‘s back in:

var newPathname = "";
for (i = 0; i < pathArray.length; i++) {
  newPathname += "/";
  newPathname += pathArray[i];
