Package description

What is left-pad?

The left-pad npm package is a simple utility that allows you to pad a string with characters to ensure it reaches a certain length. It is primarily used to add padding to the left side of a string.

What are left-pad's main functionalities?

String Padding

This feature allows you to pad a string with spaces or any other character to a certain length. It is useful for aligning text or ensuring that strings fit into a fixed-width layout.

"hello".padStart(10, ' '); // results in '     hello'

Usage

const leftPad = require('left-pad')

leftPad('foo', 5)
// => "  foo"

leftPad('foobar', 6)
// => "foobar"

leftPad(1, 2, '0')
// => "01"

leftPad(17, 5, 0)
