printf, sprintf, and vsprintf for JavaScript

version 0.2.2 on npm node version 0.4 and up MIT License

npm install format

The code works in browsers as well, you can copy these functions into your project or otherwise include them with your other JavaScript.

Usage

var format = require('format')
  , printf = format.printf
  , vsprintf = format.vsprintf
  // or if you want to keep it old school
  , sprintf = format

// Print 'hello world'
printf('%s world', 'hello')

var what = 'life, the universe, and everything'
format('%d is the answer to %s', 42, what)
// => '42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything'

vsprintf('%d is the answer to %s', [42, what])
// => '42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything'

// you can format values as JSON with %j
var value = {answer: 42}
format('%j', value)
// => '{"answer":42}'
