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.
Next up, I plan to add support for testing replace functions, and then a proper lexer.
