How to Remove First Element from Array in Javascript

In this post, I'm sharing a short post on how to remove the first element value from an array in Javascript. If you need to remove the first value of the array before processing the data then array.shift() done this.

Here is the example solution below:

<script>
var websites = ['google.com', 'facebook.com', 'youtube.com'];

websites.shift();

console.log(websites);

// result: ["facebook.com", "youtube.com"]
</script>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I hope this tutorial can help you. Kindly visit here https://codeanddeploy.com/blog/javascript/how-to-remove-first-element-from-array-in-javascript if you want to download this code.

Happy coding :)

Or, without mutation:

let websites = ['google.com', 'facebook.com', 'youtube.com'];
[, ...websites] = websites
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
