Right substring generator

Angelos Chalaris · JavaScript, String, Generator · Jul 25, 2022

Generates all right substrings of a given string.

  • Use String.prototype.length to terminate early if the string is empty.
  • Use a for...in loop and String.prototype.slice() to yield each substring of the given string, starting at the end.
const rightSubstrGenerator = function* (str) {
  if (!str.length) return;
  for (let i in str) yield str.slice(-i - 1);
};
[...rightSubstrGenerator('hello')];
// [ 'o', 'lo', 'llo', 'ello', 'hello' ]
