Array Meses Javascript

I recently had to work with an array in Javascript that contained the names of the months. The array was used to populate a dropdown menu on a webpage. I found it to be a useful way to store and manipulate multiple pieces of data in a single variable.

Creating the array

To create an array in Javascript, you can use the following syntax:

var meses = ["Enero", "Febrero", "Marzo", "Abril", "Mayo", "Junio", "Julio", "Agosto", "Septiembre", "Octubre", "Noviembre", "Diciembre"];

This creates an array called 'meses' that contains 12 strings, each representing a month in Spanish.

Accessing elements of the array

You can access individual elements of an array by using their index. Array indexes start at 0, so to access the first element of the 'meses' array, you would use the following:

var primerMes = meses[0];

This would assign the value "Enero" to the variable 'primerMes'.

Looping through the array

One of the most common uses of arrays is to iterate through their elements. You can do this using a for loop:

for (var i = 0; i < meses.length; i++) {

This would output each month in the array to the console.

Other ways to create arrays

There are a few other ways to create arrays in Javascript:

  • You can use the array constructor:

var meses = new Array("Enero", "Febrero", "Marzo", "Abril", "Mayo", "Junio", "Julio", "Agosto", "Septiembre", "Octubre", "Noviembre", "Diciembre");
  • You can use the Array.from method to create an array from an iterable:

var meses = Array.from("EneroFebreroMarzoAbrilMayoJunioJulioAgostoSeptiembreOctubreNoviembreDiciembre", mes => mes.slice(0, -1));


Arrays are a powerful and flexible data type in Javascript. Whether you're working with a list of months or a collection of any other type of data, arrays can help you organize and manipulate your data in a way that's easy to read and maintain.
