MDN wants to talk to developers like you:

Returns a list of the <script> elements in the document. The returned object is an HTMLCollection.


var scriptList = document.scripts;

The returned scriptList is an HTMLCollection. You can use this just like an array to get all the elements in the list.


This example looks to see if the page has any <script> elements.

var scripts = document.scripts;

if (scripts.length) {
  alert("This page has scripts!");
