Good Regex Tester (RegExr)

Postby dash » Sun Sep 23, 2012 8:57 am

Hi guys,

if you want to quickly test your regular expressions, here is a free online-tool called RegExr that i find extremely helpful:
http://gskinner.com/RegExr/

You can simply enter some text, write a regex and this tool then highlights all matches in your text.
It also has "before and after" preview feature for search and replace regex-actions.

If you want an offline version of this tool, you can also download "desktop version" (the link is at the bottom right).

(you'll need adobe's AIR to run the tool http://get.adobe.com/de/air/)

cheers

Very nice. I particularly like the community sharing aspect of the site, makes it a lot more usable for noobs. Thanks for sharing, this one's a keeper!
