Remove attributes

JavaScript, Browser · Jul 20, 2022

Removes all attributes from an HTML element.

  • Use Element.attributes and Object.values() to get all the attributes of the element.
  • Use Array.prototype.forEach() and object destructuring to get the name of each attribute and Element.removeAttribute() to remove it from the element.
const removeAttributes = element =>
  Object.values(element.attributes).forEach(({ name }) =>
// The paragraph will not have the 'special' class anymore
