Get the computed style of a html element

getComputedStyle is a function attach to window object. It allows to get the exact same information than the chrome computed properties So the list of all properties of a given element

getComputedStyle($('body'))

To extract only the info you need you can take advantage of ES6 syntax

const {
order,
height,
} = getComputedStyle(el)

So here we got for example order: 0 and height: 25078.3px

To extract only the numerical value of the pixel and drop the .3 You can use

parseInt(getComputedStyle($('body')).height, 10)

The result is 25078
