Center-align the text in a string.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save center-align


var center = require('center-align');
center(val, width);


  • val {String|Array}: the string or array of strings to center align
  • width {Number} (optional): the total width of each line in the expected result, after it's centered.


console.log(center('foo')); //=> 'foo' (does nothing)
console.log(center('foo', 12)); //=> '    foo    '
console.log(center('foo', 10)); //=> '   foo   '
console.log(center('foo', 8));  //=> '  foo  '

Multiple lines

If expected width is not provided, the length of the longest line will be used.


If used on the following:

// value can be a string, or an array of strings
  'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,',
  'consectetur adipiscing',
  'elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt',
  'ut labore et dolore',
  'magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim',
  'veniam, quis'

The result would be:

     Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,
        consectetur adipiscing
elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt
         ut labore et dolore
    magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim
             veniam, quis
