RA.padStart, RA.padEnd?

See original GitHub issue


JS already has String.prototype.padStart and String.prototype.padEnd, it’s only a matter of exposing a functional interface to them.

  1. If we used R.invoker for that, they’d have signature targetLength -> padString -> stringToPad -> paddedString. I feel like a better signature would be padString -> targetLength -> stringToPad -> paddedString.

  2. How would we name them?

    • padStart and padEnd?
    • leftPad and rightPad?
    • padLeft and padRight?

    My preferred choice would probably be padStart and padEnd, for consistency with JS.

Nope, we use methods from String.prototype if present. If not present we provide polyfill.

I said, wrapStart and wrapEnd sound like R.concat, I said nothing about wrap.
