Column Formatting String Operations
Add additional string options to Declarative Customization Column Formatting. Specfically:
Having these would greatly increase the power of Column Formatting both in terms of string formatting but also with powerful conditional formatting. Without these basic operations, Column Formatting is still pretty limited.

Most of my use cases for custom column formatting rely on the existence of basic string manipulation functions. I can't utilize calculated column work arounds to these problems due to the size of my library (list view threshold).
Please consider these features.
This idea should be considered to make column formatting more powerful and more usable. had to create many calculated fields to accommodate equivalent string operations in column formatting.

Seems to be great, not experienced yet though.
All of these plus a 'contains' operator would be great.

Also how about a contains operator.
3 votes from me! Even just for the substring functionality.
