Regex - strip out text between first and second forward slashes

I've almost got this regex working but am having trouble with the leading forward slash - can anyone see where I'm going wrong with this? I just want to extract the first string, "projects" in this example here -> http://regexr.com?300av

Answer

The easiest way is to split string using forward slash

var firstString = url.split('/')[1];

and you will have first string, but if you want to extract using regext than this will do, just remember don't add global parameter in your regex.

\/([a-zA-Z0-9]{0,})

I hope this helps
