Underscore.string.fp Build Status

This is a wrapper for underscore.string to use it as a FP-library or with a library like lodash-fp or Ramda

Usage

In Node.js and Browserify

Install from npm

npm install underscore.string.fp

Require individual functions

var include = require("underscore.string.fp/include");

var includeHello = include('Hello');

includeHello("Hello world!");
// => true

includeHello("Nope");
// => false

or load the full library to compose functions

var rockit = S(
  S.titleize(),
  S.insert('rocks', 9),
  S.trim('_')
);

// S.titleize(S.insert('rocks', 9, S.trim('_', "__stoeffel !__")));
rockit("__stoeffel !__");
// => "Stoeffel Rocks!"

but especially when using with Browserify the individual function approach is recommended because using it you only add those functions to your bundle you use.

Others

The dist/underscore.string.fp.js file is an UMD build. You can load it using an AMD loader such as RequireJS or just stick it to a web page and access the library from the S global.

Ramda integration

You can use it with ramda.

R.map(S.camelize(), [
  'Moo boo',
  'Foo bar'
]);
// => ['mooBoo', 'fooBoo']
R.filter(S.startsWith('.'), [
  '.vimrc',
  'foo.md',
  '.zshrc'
]);
// => ['.vimrc', '.zshrc']

lodash-fp integration

You can use it with lodash-fp.

_.map(S.camelize(), [
  'Moo boo',
  'Foo bar'
]);
// => ['mooBoo', 'fooBoo']
_.filter(S.startsWith('.'), [
  '.vimrc',
  'foo.md',
  '.zshrc'
]);
// => ['.vimrc', '.zshrc']

rockit("__stoeffel !__");
// => "Stoeffel Rocks!"

strip     = trim
lstrip    = ltrim
rstrip    = rtrim
center    = lrpad
