JavaScript String Cheatsheet Reference

A string in Javascript represents a sequence of characters.

Strings are useful for holding data that can be represented in textual forms. Some of the most-used operations on strings are to check their length, to build and concatenate them using the + and += string operators, checking for the existence or location of substrings with the indexOf() method, or extracting substrings with the substring() method.

Whatever manipulation you need to do with Strings here are 12 Javascript String methods you can always reference.

The search() method matches a string against a regular expression **

It returns the index (position) of the first match.

The search() method returns -1 if no match is found.

Example:

const str = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog";  
str.search(/[^\w\s]/g);
