Given an array like this:

["one", "two", "three", "four", "five"]

How do I get the first string/item in that array?

I'm coding in JavaScript.

Access the array at the 0 index, which is the first element in the array:

let array = ["one", "two", "three", "four", "five"]

array[0] // "one"

Lodash has a head() method you can use:

_.head(array) // returns first element in an array

An additional way that works using find():

array.find(e => true)
