freeCodeCamp Challenge Guide: Find More Than the First Match

Find More Than the First Match

Problem Explanation

If you have multiple occurrences of your regex inside a string, you can get the match() function to detect all of them. Simply tag along the g flag at the end of your regex! That’s what you’re doing in this challenge.


Hint 1

Change the regex so that it detects the word “twinkle”.

Hint 2

You can add multiple tags to a regex! For example, a regex that detects multiple occurrences, and detects regardless of case, can be structured like gi or ig.


Solution 1 (Click to Show/Hide)
let twinkleStar = "Twinkle, twinkle, little star";
let starRegex = /twinkle/gi;
let result = twinkleStar.match(starRegex);
