zpad - Zero padding for Node.js

zpad is a tiny Node.js module for zero padding strings and numbers, because I got tired of copypasting a function for this in every other thing I've been writing.

Installation

zpad is available via npm:

$ npm install zpad

Usage

var zpad = require('zpad');
zpad(5);             // -> "05", zpad pads to 2 digits by default
zpad(5, 3);          // -> "005", you can pass a second parameter to specify the amount of digits
zpad.amount(3);      // change the default padding amount by calling zpad.amount with a number
zpad.amount();       // -> 3, returns the padding amount with no arguments
zpad(5);             // -> "005"
zpad.character('X'); // change what is used for padding by calling zpad.character with a string
zpad.character();    // -> "X", returns the padding character with no arguments
zpad(5);             // -> "XX5"
zpad(5, 3, 'Z');     // -> "ZZ5", you can also pass custom pad character as third parameter
 
// .amount and .character can also be chained, allowing you to define them when loading the module
var pad = require('zpad').amount(4).character('Y');
pad(5);              // -> "YYY5"
