zerop

Pad a number with leading or trailing zeros. Currently it's the most efficient package available with this purpose.

Usage

const pad = require('zerop')

pad(42, 5) // '00042'
pad(42, 5, 16) // '0002a'
pad.right(42, 5) // '42000'

API

zerop(number, [length=2], [radix=10])string
zerop.right(number, [length=2], [radix=10])string

const pad = require('zerop')

typeof pad === 'function' // pad left
pad === pad.left // reference to the main export
typeof pad.right === 'function' // pad right
typeof pad.version === 'string' // version string from package manifest

pad(11) === '11'
pad(11, 3) === '011'
pad(11, 3, 16) === '00b'
