re: Daily Challenge #89 - Extract domain name from URL VIEW POST

Can you please explain what

const { hostname } = a;

does and how?

 

That's called destructuring assignment. "a" probably is an object which has the hostname property so that assignment extracts hostname.
I'm just writin about this 😅. Hopefully that'll help you.

 

It has the same effect as:
const hostname = a.hostname
