Desktop Regexr

And here’s the info on the desktop version:

gskinner.com: gBlog: RegExr Desktop Released: Regular Expression Tool in AIR

I just uploaded the desktop version of RegExr. It’s just an AIR version of the online application for now, but I’ll add some desktop specific features, and put up a nicer looking page when I have a chance.

With this morning’s announcement of the AIR alpha for Linux, this means RegExr is now the first free tool for editing and testing regular expressions (RegEx) that runs on Mac OSX, Windows, Linux, and online (as far as I can determine). Pretty cool, considering it only took 60 minutes of work to convert the online application to a desktop program and add update notifications.

You can install the desktop version of RegExr here. Or, you can use the online version at regexr.com.

Update: This recently helped me convert some text from an select options dropdown list to text for a dataprovider to use within AS3. Nice! I usually use TextWrangler for stuff like this but Regex helps you iteratively see your progress as you match and replace data. Thank you Mr. Skinner!
