So at some point in our lives we've all had to encounter the wonders of Regular Expressions (Regex). If you don't know what Regex is in short terms its a special type of String that allows you to input a description to search for a pattern. It tends to be very useful in development, I commonly finding myself using it a lot (sometimes way too much). It generally will look something on the lines of this
So this looks a little messy and confusing, although that Regex is very powerful in a lot of fields I don't think anybody likes writing it. That was until I discovered a little beauty called VerbalExpressions. VerbalExpressions takes normal Regex and nulls it down a lot to make it more efficient and easier to use. Here for example
Now comparing this to above it makes it a lot easier to follow, more efficient to work with and your code a whole lot cleaner. Personally I love using this tool, for a long time I found that working in Regex would always cause me a lot of problems seeing as one missing or misplaced character would mean that the entire thing would be a pain to fix.
And the best thing about it? It's available in 32 different languages. All of which can be found right here on their github https://github.com/VerbalExpressions
