    Count how often a character (or substring) is used in a string.

    Contents

    What is this?

    This package is a small utility that helps you find how frequently a substring occurs in another string.

    When should I use this?

    I find this particularly useful when generating code, for example, when building a string that can either be double or single quoted. I use this utility to choose single quotes when double quotes are used more frequently, and double quotes otherwise.

    Install

    This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 12.20+, 14.14+, or 16.0+), install with npm:

    npm install ccount

    In Deno with Skypack:

    import {ccount} from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/ccount@2?dts'

    In browsers with Skypack:

    <script type="module">
      import {ccount} from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/ccount@2?min'
    </script>

    Use

    import {ccount} from 'ccount'
    
    ccount('foo(bar(baz)', '(') // => 2
    ccount('foo(bar(baz)', ')') // => 1
