Regex - tools
working with regex is always painful. most of the time developers end up in copy pasting regular expressions from stack-overflow or other sites. Although this satisfies the needs of most common requirements, it is good to have an idea of what the regex is doing and testing it.
I find following tools very helpful while working with regular expressions.
- Any text editor or IDE
most of the modern ides and text editors come with a good regular expression support for searching text.
This is one of my favourite developer tool. Regulex helps to visualize the regular expression
If you want to write, test & play with regex this is a good site. It also has good regex documentation.

My favorite regex tool is regexr.com/ :)
Yep, I'm using regexr.com lately. Previously I was using regexpal.com for years before they updated it. Anyway here is my bookmarked list of online regex tools:
I've added regex101.com to the list.
Another one regexper.com
Some great tools mentioned in this post and the comments!
May I suggest regex.guide, very convenient for beginners?
