escape dollar sign in es6 string literal


I am using the new string literal syntax of javascript es6 <a href="https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Template_literals" rel="nofollow">Docs Here</a> and I am not quite sure how to escape the dollar sign that is used to break the string to add a parameter. Here is what I am trying to do:

var response = `I consent to my credit card being charged in the amount of $ ${ total } for the purchase of ${ item.title } and any applicable sales tax.`

that works fine... but I would really prefer to not have that space $ ${title}

that leaves the end result looking like :


... in the amount of $ 25.99 for the purchase...


I would really rather prefer


... in the amount of $25.99 for the purchase ...


I guess that is ok, or obviously I could use the old way that still works, but it would be nice to know how to fix this. I linked to the Mozilla docs , and I can't find anything in there about it, hopefully someone has an idea how to fix this


var response = `I consent to my credit card being charged in the amount of $${ total } for the purchase of ${ item.title } and any applicable sales tax.`


The only case where $ does not produce the literal $ is before a {, otherwise you do not need to escape it.

var response = `You have $${money}`

does work therefore. In case you need to escape anything, the backslash \ is the escape character in template strings as well, so (while unnecessary) the following works as well:

var response = `You have \$${money}`


Putting a backslash in front of the dollar sign was the first thing that comes to my mind and it works:



This works for me.

var response = `You have \$\{money}`;
