URL decoding in javascript is probably the easiest of the lot and hence we are covering it the first. You can encode URI components like a string or part of a string or a URL using the decodeURIComponent()

Here is a quick example, of how to encode a URL or string using javascript

const value = 'Tööls Cönverters xyz URLEncoder@Javascript'
const encodedValue = encodeURIComponent(value)


// T%C3%B6%C3%B6ls%20C%C3%B6nverters%20xyz%20URLEncoder%40Javascript

Now, let us decode the above coded string

const value =
const decodedValue = decodeURIComponent(value)


// Tööls Cönverters xyz URLEncoder@Javascript
