Left pad a string.

Installation

$ npm install utils-left-pad-string

Usage

var lpad = require( 'utils-left-pad-string' );

lpad( str, len, pad )

Left pads a string such that the padded string has a length of at least len.
var str = lpad( 'a', 5 );
// returns '    a'

By default, an input string is padded with spaces. To pad with a different character or sequence of characters, provide a pad string.
var str = lpad( 'beep', 10, 'b' );
// returns 'bbbbbbbeep'

str = lpad( 'boop', 12, 'beep' );
// returns 'beepbeepboop'

Notes

  • An output string is not guaranteed to have a length of exactly len, but to have a length of at least len. To generate a padded string having a length equal to len
``` javascript
var str = lpad( 'boop', 10, 'beep' );
// returns 'beepbeepboop' => length 12

str = str.substring( str.length-10 );
// returns 'epbeepboop' => length 10
``` 

Examples

var round = require( 'math-round' );
var lpad = require( 'utils-left-pad-string' );

var str = 'beep';
var n;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
	n = round( Math.random()*10 ) + str.length;
	console.log( lpad( str, n, 'b' ) );
}
