To convert each character in a string into an array, we can use the from() method from the global Array object in JavaScript.

Consider a string called Hello! like this,

// random string
const str = "Hello!";
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now to convert each character in this string into an array, let's use the Array.from() method and

  • pass the above string as the first argument to the method.
  • the method returns a new array

It can be done like this,

// random string
const str = "Hello!";

// convert each characters in string to array
const strArr = Array.from(str);

console.log(strArr); // ["H", "e", "l", "l", "o", "!"]
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now if you look at the output of the strArr, we can see that the string is successfully converted to an array.

See the above code live in JSBin.

That's all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!
