Readme for trimdent-

[back to package description]


Trimdent is a simple library for smartly trimming and unindenting strings.

>>> import Text.RawString.QQ (r)
>>> trimdent [r|func add(x int, y int) int {
                  return x + y
"func add(x int, y int) int {\n\
\  return x + y\n\

Why is this useful?

This library is useful when you are writing your own quasi quoter and want to sanitize whitespace.

How does it compare to other libraries?

  • Neat-interpolation exposes the same functionality but only in an interpolating quasi quoter. This means that you can't easily use it in your own quoters.
  • raw-strings-qq gives quasi quoters to express multi-line strings, but they don't do any trimming.
