How to repeat strings in JavaScript?

Published November 8, 2020

To repeat string in JavaScript, you can use the repeat() string method.

Consider this string,

// string
const str = "hehe";

Let's repeat this string 5 times using the repeat() string method.

// string
const str = "hehe";

// repeat string 5 times
const repeatStr = str.repeat(5);

console.log(repeatStr); // "hehehehehehehehehehe"

See this example live in JSBin.

  • You can pass a positive integer as the number of times you want the string to be repeated as the first argument to the repeat() method.

  • The method returns a new string.
