In vanilla JavaScript, you can use the Array.join() method to convert an array into a human-readable string. This method takes an array as input and returns the array as a string.

By default, the elements are joined together by using a comma (,) as a separator:

const fruits = ['Apple', 'Orange', 'Mango', 'Cherry'];

const str = fruits.join();

console.log(str);

// Apple,Orange,Mango,Cherry

You can also specify a custom separator — dashes, spaces, or empty strings — as a parameter to the Array.join() method. Let us say that you want to add a space after the comma, just pass the following to Array.join():

const str = fruits.join(', ');

// Apple, Orange, Mango, Cherry

Want to have each array element on its own line? Just pass in a newline character:

const str = fruits.join('\n');
// Apple
// Orange
// Mango
// Cherry

Prefer to use the HTML line break?

const str = fruits.join('<br>');

The Array.join() method works in all modern browsers, and back to at least IE6.
