# »`indent` Function

`indent` adds a given number of spaces to the beginnings of all but the first line in a given multi-line string.

``````indent(num_spaces, string)
``````

## »Examples

This function is useful for inserting a multi-line string into an already-indented context in another string:

``````> "  items: %{indent(2, "[\n  foo,\n  bar,\n]\n")}"
items: [
foo,
bar,
]
``````

The first line of the string is not indented so that, as above, it can be placed after an introduction sequence that has already begun the line.
