How to get all the script tags from HTML documents using JavaScript?

Published August 30, 2020

To get all the script tags from an HTML document or the DOM, you can use the document.scripts property.

Let's say you have many script tags in your HTML file like this,

<script src="script1.js"></script>
<script src="script2.js"></script>
<script src="script3.js"></script>

Let' use the document.scripts property to get all the script tags using JavaScript

  • The property returns the script tags as an HTMLCollection Object.
// get all script tags
const scriptTags = document.scripts;
