The .push() method adds one or more elements to the end of an array and returns the new length.

Syntax

array.push(item1, item2, ...itemN);

A comma-separated list of items (strings, variables, or functions) can be passed to the end of the array. The .push() method is not to be confused with returning an entirely new array with the passed object.

Example

Add one item to the end of the colors array:

const colors = ['red', 'orange'];
colors.push('yellow');
console.log(colors);

This will output the following:

["red", "orange", "yellow"]

Codebyte Example
