How to split and slice a string in Handlebars?

To split and slice a string in Handlebars; you need to register a custom helper for Handlebars. There is an example about how to register a custom helper for Handlebars in official Handlebars website https://handlebarsjs.com/#helpers

This is my custom helper

Handlebars.registerHelper('splitUrl', function(url) {return url.split("/").slice(-1,str.length);});

Which splits the url string

var url = "https://twitter.com/akarshseggemu";

and slices it to return only the last part i.e. my username “akarshseggemu”.

You can use the custom helper in the hbs file like this

<p>{{splitUrl url}}</p>
