How to get the current URL in JavaScript

in Code Write a comment

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to get the current page URL. We’ll be using the window.location object.

const currentURL = () => window.location.href;
currentURL(); // 'https://renatello.com/javascript-current-url/'

You can also use other window.location properties to create a custom URL:

window.location.hostname // returns the domain name of the web host
window.location.pathname // returns the path and filename of the current page
window.location.protocol // returns the web protocol used (http: or https:)
window.location.assign // loads a new document
window.location.search // returns the search query
