indent Function

indent adds a given number of spaces to the beginnings of all but the first line in a given multi-line string.

Code Block
indent(num_spaces, string)


This function is useful for inserting a multi-line string into an already-indented context in another string:

Code Block
> "  items: ${indent(2, "[\n  foo,\n  bar,\n]\n")}"
items: [

The first line of the string is not indented so that, as above, it can be placed after an introduction sequence that has already begun the line.
