    Trim the End of a String in JavaScript with ES2019 trimEnd


    ES2019 introduces the String.prototype.trimEnd and String.prototype.trimStart methods. In this lesson, we'll investigate a common use case for .trimEnd. We'll figure out how to work around the lack of .trimEnd in older versions of JS, and then refactor the code to use .trimEnd to achieve an even better result with less complexity.
