Description

Regular expressions are a powerful tool for developers, but they aren't the easiest things to build and debug. Oyster helps you interactively build and test them, storing each "pearl" in an easy to access library.

With powerful syntax highlighting, dynamic updates of matches and the results of replacement patterns in test text it has never been easier to build and test your regular expressions.

Once you've got it just the way you like it, oyster lets you copy the code in one of 11 languages onto the clip-board or by dragging out the pip into your desired editor. Starting with Dash 1.8.5 (coming August 2013) you can even save your regular expression as a snippet in Dash's library.

You're not alone either, Oyster has built in integration with Oyster Farm, an online repository for pearls. You can download something that seems to fit the bill for you, and tweak it into what you would like. You can even share your changes, or entirely new pearls of your own.

Key features:
• Keep a library of regular expressions, match tests, and replacement patterns (locally or in iCloud)
• Download and share pearls in the oyster farm
• Interactive highlighting of regular expression, matches, and pattern application
• Match highlighting includes group matches within overall match
• Generate code for C#, Java, JavaScript, JSP, Objective-C (NSRegularExpression and NSPredicate), PHP, Ruby, Pearl, Python, and TCL/TK
• Handy Regex Reference sheet to help you tune your regular expression

What's New in Version 1.2

Added support for Rx+ Regular expression categories on NSRegularExpression (https://github.com/bendytree/Objective-C-RegEx-Categories)

Customer Reviews

I want to give this 5 stars but I can’t!

I can’t give it 5 stars because the delete library button has causted me to lose hours of work. It’s in a HORRIBLE spot and there’s no confirmation! Also, why doesn’t the app tell you how many hits you have? Odd. Good job on it in general but some obvious things have been overlooked in my opinion.
