re: I hated Regex so much that I made iHateRegex.io VIEW POST


according to your regex, this is a valid emailaddress: geon@ihate@regex.io


I have 2 email expressions in the app(try a search). Just use the simple one if you don't know what you want. It works 99% of all the time.
If you wanna get it 99.9% success rate use the complicated one (but please don't)

read the comment thread in this post by @hyftar and me


I see. Well, I just clicked "email" on the homepage and I landed on the simple email :-)

With the complicated email, I think you need to consider word boundaries, since you match a part theproblem@test@gmail.com , but it should be entirely right or entirely wrong.

I'm starting to see why you hate regex ;-)

πŸ˜‚ Yeah. I will spend some time to properly understand the email part
