JavaScript location origin property

The JavaScript location origin property is used to get the protocol, hostname, and port number of the current URL. It does not take any arguments and returns a string value representing the origin of the URL.

Here are some examples of how the origin property can be used in JavaScript code:

  1. To get the origin of the current URL, you can use the following code:
// get the origin of the current URL
const origin = location.origin;
  1. To log the origin of the current URL to the console, you can use the following code:
// log the origin of the current URL to the console
console.log('Current URL origin:', location.origin);
  1. To compare the origin of the current URL with a certain value, you can use the following code:
// define the origin to compare
const origin = 'http://www.example.com:8080';

// compare the origin of the current URL with the specified value
if (location.origin === origin) {
  // do something...
}

Overall, the origin property provides a convenient way to get the protocol, hostname, and port number of the current URL. It can be useful for tasks such as checking the current domain or server, or for other operations that require accessing the origin of the URL.
