How to extract the URL from the CSS background-image property with RegEx
Posted on September 19, 2019
A snippet of code I found on my hard-drive that might be useful, thus, I want to document here.
It's a simple Reg-exp to extract the full URL from a CSS
background-image url property:
// you have var csspath = 'url(myImage.png)' // and want to get 'myImage.png' var reg = new RegExp(/url\((.*)\)/gim) var cleanPath = reg.exec(csspath) if(cleanPath) console.log(cleanPath)
Update: A better reg-ex in this post.
