Fastest implementation for repeating a string. ## Install Install with [npm](https://www.npmjs.com/): ```sh $ npm install --save repeat-string ``` ## Usage ### [repeat](/node_modules/repeat-string/index.js#L41) Repeat the given `string` the specified `number` of times. **Example:** **Example** ```js var repeat = require('repeat-string'); repeat('A', 5); //=> AAAAA ``` **Params** * `string` **{String}**: The string to repeat * `number` **{Number}**: The number of times to repeat the string * `returns` **{String}**: Repeated string ## Benchmarks Repeat string is significantly faster than the native method (which is itself faster than [repeating](https://github.com/sindresorhus/repeating)): ```sh # 2x repeat-string █████████████████████████ (26,953,977 ops/sec) repeating █████████ (9,855,695 ops/sec) native ██████████████████ (19,453,895 ops/sec) # 3x repeat-string █████████████████████████ (19,445,252 ops/sec) repeating ███████████ (8,661,565 ops/sec) native ████████████████████ (16,020,598 ops/sec) # 10x repeat-string █████████████████████████ (23,792,521 ops/sec) repeating █████████ (8,571,332 ops/sec) native ███████████████ (14,582,955 ops/sec) # 50x repeat-string █████████████████████████ (23,640,179 ops/sec) repeating █████ (5,505,509 ops/sec) native ██████████ (10,085,557 ops/sec) # 250x repeat-string █████████████████████████ (23,489,618 ops/sec) repeating ████ (3,962,937 ops/sec) native ████████ (7,724,892 ops/sec) # 2000x repeat-string █████████████████████████ (20,315,172 ops/sec) repeating ████ (3,297,079 ops/sec) native ███████ (6,203,331 ops/sec) # 20000x repeat-string █████████████████████████ (23,382,915 ops/sec) repeating ███ (2,980,058 ops/sec) native █████ (5,578,808 ops/sec) ``` **Run the benchmarks** Install dev dependencies: ```sh npm i -d && node benchmark ``` ## About ### Related projects [repeat-element](https://www.npmjs.com/package/repeat-element): Create an array by repeating the given value n times. | [homepage](https://github.com/jonschlinkert/repeat-element "Create an array by repeating the given value n times.") ### Contributing Pull requests and stars are always welcome.
