ellipsize

Node.js CI

Ellipsizes a string near a word boundary.

An ellipsized text looks much better if the ellipsize was added at the end of the last full word instead of somewhere in the middle - especially if there are very few characters remaining.

As of 1.x, ellipsize honors the max length including the ellipsize char. This means you get exactly n characters, including the ellipse.

Examples

    var ellipsize = require('ellipsize');

    ellipsize('');
    // ''
    ellipsize(undefined);
    // ''
    ellipsize('one two three four', 8 );
    // 'one two…'
    ellipsize('one two-three four', 8 );
    // 'one two…'
    ellipsize('one two three four', 100 );
    // 'one two three four'
    ellipsize('12345678910')
    // '1234567…'
    ellipsize('abc', 0 );
    // ''

You may provide an alternative ellipse character, or "break points" like so:

    var ellipsize = require('ellipsize');

    ellipsize( 'one two&three four', 8, { chars: [' ', '&'], ellipse: '→' });
    // 'one two→'

Also you may provide a setting to truncate words:

    var ellipsize = require('ellipsize');

    // only ellipsize if word boundarys found
    ellipsize( '123456789ABCDEF', 8, { truncate: false });
    // '' 

    // ellipsize in the middle
    ellipsize( '1234…CDEF', 9, { truncate: "middle" });
    // '1234…CDEF' 


    // its default settings
    ellipsize( '123456789ABCDEF', 8, { truncate: true });
    // '1234567…'
