The purpose of string padding is to add characters to a string, so it reaches a specific length.

padEnd(), introduced in ES2017, adds such characters at the end of the string.

padEnd(targetLength [, padString])

Sample usage:

‘test’.padEnd(5)‘test ’
‘test’.padEnd(8)‘test    ’
‘test’.padEnd(8, ‘abcd’)‘testabcd’

Also see padStart().
