Access to ES6 array element index inside for-of loop

We can access array elements using a for-of loop:

for (const j of [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]) {

How can I modify this code to access the current index too? I want to achieve this using for-of syntax, neither forEach nor for-in.


  • Use Array.prototype.keys:

    for (const index of ["a", "b", "c", "d", "e"].keys()) {

    If you want to access both the key and the value, you can use Array.prototype.entries() with destructuring:

    for (const [index, value] of ["a", "b", "c", "d", "e"].entries()) {
      console.log(index, value);
