remove-trailing-separator

NPM version Build Status: Linux Build Status: Windows Coverage Status

Removes all separators from the end of a string.

Install

npm install remove-trailing-separator

Examples

const removeTrailingSeparator = require('remove-trailing-separator');

removeTrailingSeparator('/foo/bar/')   // '/foo/bar'
removeTrailingSeparator('/foo/bar///') // '/foo/bar'

// leaves only/last separator
removeTrailingSeparator('/')    // '/'
removeTrailingSeparator('///')  // '/'

// returns empty string
removeTrailingSeparator('') // ''

Notable backslash, or win32 separator behavior

\ is considered a separator only on WIN32 systems. All POSIX compliant systems see backslash as a valid file name character, so it would break POSIX compliance to remove it there.

In practice, this means that this code will return different things depending on what system it runs on:

removeTrailingSeparator('\\foo\\')
// UNIX  => '\\foo\\'
// WIN32 => '\\foo'
You can’t perform that action at this time.
