JavaScript - remove empty elements from array

3 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to remove empty elements from an array in JavaScript.

Quick solution:

const outputArray = inputArray.filter(x => x);


Alternative solutions

When we want to keep zeros too:

const outputArray = inputArray.filter(x => x || x === 0);

When we want to keep empty strings too:

const outputArray = inputArray.filter(x => x || x === '');


Practical example

In this example, we use filter() method to create a copy of the values array without empty elements.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

const values = ['A', 'B', 1, -2, 0, null, undefined,,,, '', "", 'C', 'D'];
const result = values.filter(x => x);

console.log(result);  // [A,B,1,-2,C,D]
