Let’s say you have a string, and you want to remove the first character in it.
How can you do so?
One easy solution is to use the
slice() method, passing
1 as parameter:
const text = 'abcdef' const editedText = text.slice(1) //'bcdef'
Note that the
slice() method does not modify the original string.
It creates a new string, this is why I assign it to a new variable in the above example.
