how to use the padstart function from the lodash library in typescript

To use the padStart function from the lodash library in TypeScript, you need to install the library and its types.

You can do so via npm by running the following command:

npm install lodash @types/lodash
33 chars
2 lines

Then you can import the padStart function like this:

import { padStart } from 'lodash';

const result = padStart('foo', 5, '0');
console.log(result); // "00foo"
108 chars
5 lines

The padStart function takes three arguments:

  • The string to pad
  • The length of the resulting string
  • The string to use for the padding

In the example above, the resulting string should have a length of 5, so two zeroes are added to the beginning of the string.
