I‘ve tried a whole bunch of nicely designed regex apps (and this one seems to fit in), but the one feature that is absolutely essential is support for different regex dialects. Often, they only provide the dialect for the specific language they’re implemented in, and often that’s not even specified. What I usually want to do is to track down subtle differences between Perl, Python, gnu grep, and vim
I've been using Patterns for a couple of years now, and I can definitely recommend it.
This seems very, very similar to an app called Expressions.
http://www.regexplanet.com/ handles regex dialects for a dozen languages and allows them to be shared.
Author deleted my comment last time. It was:
Unfortunately the interface has been copied almost 1:1 from Expressions which is not fair.
Yes, this is plagiary.
Somehow the cursor/caret keeps going to the end of the regex string when I type in the middle
Wow, exactly what I'm after. Didn't know I needed this til now.
Looks promising - I found I couldn't edit sample text - anything I typed in the sample area was added to the end of the sample, not the caret position.
What about a Linux one?
Pretty cool, thanks!
which flavour of regex does it implement?
