Remove Child Elements From An HTML Element With JavaScript

September 2022
Code
const parentElement = document.getElementById('someElement')

while (parentElement.children.length > 0) {
    parentElement.children[0].remove()
}

Where alfa is the element to remove the children from

What Didn't Work

The MDN docs say to do this, but it didn't work for me. It wouldn't clear all the elements.

Code
for (const child of playlists_div.children) {
    child.remove()
}

Not sure why.

(Thanks to i7 from Twitch chat for giving me the solution and saying me a non trivial amount of time)
