    Dedent

    An ES6 string tag that strips indentation from multi-line strings.

    Usage

    import dedent from "dedent";
     
    function usageExample() {
      const first = dedent`A string that gets so long you need to break it over
                           multiple lines. Luckily dedent is here to keep it
                           readable without lots of spaces ending up in the string
                           itself.`;
     
      const second = dedent`
        Leading and trailing lines will be trimmed, so you can write something like
        this and have it work as you expect:
     
          * how convenient it is
          * that I can use an indented list
             - and still have it do the right thing
     
        That's all.
      `;
     
      const third = dedent(`
        Wait! I lied. Dedent can also be used as a function.
      `);
     
      return first + "\n\n" + second + "\n\n" + third;
    }
    > console.log(usageExample());
    A string that gets so long you need to break it over
    multiple lines. Luckily dedent is here to keep it
    readable without lots of spaces ending up in the string
    itself.
    
    Leading and trailing lines will be trimmed, so you can write something like
    this and have it work as you expect:
    
      * how convenient it is
      * that I can use an indented list
        - and still have it do the right thing
    
    That's all.
    
    Wait! I lied. Dedent can also be used as a function.
