.repeat()

The .repeat() string method repeats a string a specified number of times. String will be concatenated.

Syntax

string.repeat(count);

count is an integer between 0 and Infinity, indicating the number of times to repeat a string.

Example 1

Repeating a string a specified number of times:

console.log('Berlin is my favorite city! '.repeat(2));
// Output: Berlin is my favorite city! Berlin is my favorite city!

Example 2

Repeating a string a specified number of times using a decimal:

console.log('Berlin is my favorite city! '.repeat(3.5));
// Output: Berlin is my favorite city! Berlin is my favorite city! Berlin is my favorite city!

The decimal will be converted to an integer. So in this case, 3.5 becomes 3.
