This function targets ES5, but as of Locutus 2.0.2 we also support ES6 functions. Locutus transpiles to ES5 before publishing to npm.
A community effort
Not unlike Wikipedia, Locutus is an ongoing community effort. Our philosophy follows The McDonald’s Theory. This means that we don't consider it to be a bad thing that many of our functions are first iterations, which may still have their fair share of issues. We hope that these flaws will inspire others to come up with better ideas.
This way of working also means that we don't offer any production guarantees, and recommend to use Locutus inspiration and learning purposes only.
Please note that these examples are distilled from test cases that automatically verify our functions still work correctly. This could explain some quirky ones.
Ehm.. Only 1 Python function in all of Locutus?
We could still assimilate many more functions to this language. We only just rolled out multilingual support to Locutus. If you fancy a challenge, we'd love your help expanding that. For instance, you could:
- Get inspiration from the Python 3 standard library string page.
- Click "New file" in the appropriate folder on GitHub. This will fork the project to your account, directly add the file to it, and send a Pull Request to us.
We will then review it. If it's useful to the project and in line with our contributing guidelines your work will become part of Locutus and you'll be automatically credited in the authors section accordingly.
