I have a string as follows:
var s = "1111 type reallycoolsentencetext.jsonn1111 type anotherreallycoolsentence text2.json
I’m trying to get rid of the characters between the backslashes.
s = "type reallycoolsentence\type anotherreallycoolsentence"
I know how to remove everything except characters between two special characters WITHOUT removing the special characters. Every answer on stack includes removing them too 🙁
Put the backslashes in the replacement string.
Note that you need to double them to get literal backslashes because backslash is an escape prefix in string literals.
var s = "1111 type reallycoolsentence\text.json\n1111 type anotherreallycoolsentence text2.json"; var result = s.replace(/\.*\/, '\\'); console.log(result);
This result doesn’t match the result in your example, but that’s because it doesn’t match your description of what you want to do. I implemented the description.
