In what way does this differ from the formatable string syntax that was added to JavaScript last year? The functionality sounds very similar with only the syntax and specifics of the operation differing from the built in code.

I don't know about that formatable string syntax added to JavaScript. Do you have any page with specification?

MDN has a page on it at https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Template_literals

Oh, I see. This is like PHP. What this package does is more like sprintf. It can for instance display numbers and add spaces as padding on the left so it all has a specific number of digits independent of the number. So it seems different.

So not really alike at all then - apart from a slight similarity in their descriptions.
