ak.str.repeat(array, num_repeats, *, highlevel=True, behavior=None, attrs=None)#
  • array – Array-like data (anything ak.to_layout recognizes).

  • num_repeats – (int, or an array of them to broadcast): number of times to repeat each element

  • highlevel (bool) – If True, return an ak.Array; otherwise, return a low-level ak.contents.Content subclass.

  • behavior (None or dict) – Custom ak.behavior for the output array, if high-level.

  • attrs (None or dict) – Custom attributes for the output array, if high-level.

Replaces any string-valued or bytestring-valued data with the same value repeated num_repeats times, which can be a scalar integer or a (broadcasted) array of integers.

Note: this function does not raise an error if the array does not contain any string or bytestring data.

Requires the pyarrow library and calls pyarrow.compute.binary_repeat or pyarrow.compute.binary_repeat on strings and bytestrings, respectively.
