## JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Converts a string to title case

Example:

```const toTitleCase = str =>
str
.match(/[A-Z]{2,}(?=[A-Z][a-z]+[0-9]*|\b)|[A-Z]?[a-z]+[0-9]*|[A-Z]|[0-9]+/g)
.map(x => x.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + x.slice(1))
.join(' ');
console.log(toTitleCase('some_database_field_name')); // 'Some Database Field Name'
console.log(toTitleCase('Some label that needs to be title-cased')); // 'Some Label That Needs To Be Title Cased'
console.log(toTitleCase('some-package-name')); // 'Some Package Name'
console.log(toTitleCase('some-mixed_string with spaces_underscores-and-hyphens')); // 'Some Mixed String With Spaces Underscores And Hyphens'
```

Output:

```"Some Database Field Name"
