Lodash _.capitalize


The lodash _.capitalize method is a function that takes a string value and converts the first character to uppercase and the remaining characters to lowercase. The method is included in the Lodash library which is a popular JavaScript utility library that simplifies the process of working with arrays, strings, objects, and more.

The syntax for using the _.capitalize function is quite simple. You pass a string value as an argument and the function will automatically convert the first character to uppercase and the rest of the characters to lowercase. Here's an example:

_.capitalize('hello world'); // Output: 'Hello world'

One key thing to note is that the _.capitalize method only modifies the first character of the string. If there's any whitespace or special characters before the first character, it won't be capitalized. Here's an example:

_.capitalize('  hello world'); // Output: '  hello world'

As you can see, the whitespace before the "h" was not capitalized. If you want to capitalize the entire string, you can combine the _.capitalize method with other string methods like trim:

_.capitalize('  hello world'.trim()); // Output: 'Hello world'

Overall, the Lodash _.capitalize method is a useful tool for formatting text strings in JavaScript. Its ability to quickly and easily capitalize the first letter of a string (while leaving the rest lowercase) makes it a popular choice for front-end developers, content creators, and data analysts alike.
