The following are functions that don’t fit in any other section.
Converts text from one encoding to another. Typically used for base64 encoding/decoding.
- inBase64 = convertText: text: My text value to: base64 - originalValue = convertText: text: from: base64
If not specified, parameters
from are set to “utf-8”.
Generates a new date from a string. If no string is specified, it returns the current date
- newYear = date: 1/1/2017 - now = date - log: New year was $newYear, now it's $now
The result of
- newYear = date: 1/1/2017 - areEqual: expected: 2017 actual: $newYear.getFullYear()
This function prompts the reader to input a value. This is presented differently depending on where the script is running (Command-Line, Visual Studio Code extension, etc.), and may not always be available.
# Option 1 - prompt: ask: What is your username? for: username # Option 2 - password = prompt: What is your password? - log: Your username is $username and your password is $password.length characters
In the above example, the user is prompted for
username. If the script is run with a context where the
username value is already set, it will use that value and skip prompting the user.
