# Digitize number

JavaScript, Math · Oct 18, 2020

Converts a number to an array of digits, removing its sign if necessary.

- Use
`Math.abs()`

to strip the number's sign. - Convert the number to a string, using the spread operator (
`...`

) to build an array. - Use
`Array.prototype.map()`

and`parseInt()`

to transform each value to an integer.

`const digitize = n => [...`${Math.abs(n)}`].map(i => parseInt(i));`

```
digitize(123); // [1, 2, 3]
digitize(-123); // [1, 2, 3]
```
