How to remove the first and the last character of a string

I'm wondering how to remove the first and last character of a string in Javascript.

My url is showing

/installers/
and I just want
installers
.

Sometimes it will be
/installers/services/
and I just need
installers/services
.

So I can't just simply strip the slashes
/
.

Answer

Here you go

var yourString = "/installers/";
var result = yourString.substring(1, yourString.length-1);

Or you can use .slice as suggested by Anka Gupta

var result = yourString.slice(1, -1);
