JavaScript remove item from array by value

  • by

In JavaScript, you can remove an item from an array by its value using either the Array.filter() method or the indexOf() method combined with the splice() method.

The filter() method creates a new array that only includes the items from the original array that pass a condtions, while the indexOf() method returns the index of the first occurrence of the specified value in an array. The splice() method removes elements from an array and returns the removed elements.

Using Array.filter() method:

let newArray = originalArray.filter(element => element !== valueToRemove);

Using Array.indexOf() and Array.splice() methods:

let index = originalArray.indexOf(valueToRemove);
if (index > -1) {
    originalArray.splice(index, 1);
