Dedent

An ES6 string tag that strips indentation from multi-line strings.

Usage

import dedent from "dedent";

function usageExample() { const first = dedentA string that gets so long you need to break it over multiple lines. Luckily dedent is here to keep it readable without lots of spaces ending up in the string itself.;

const second = dedent` Leading and trailing lines will be trimmed, so you can write something like this and have it work as you expect:

  * how convenient it is
  * that I can use an indented list
     - and still have it do the right thing

That's all.

`;

const third = dedent( Wait! I lied. Dedent can also be used as a function. );

return first + "\n\n" + second + "\n\n" + third; }

> console.log(usageExample());
