@FileHandler: It would be helpful -- at least for me -- if you could document your findings and settings in CudaText's forum topic... TiA

Nice tool. Should accept copy&pasted JSON-Data too.
Would be even better, if it could produce JSON classes for C#, VB.NET from the JSON data.

jamesmalvi on 2014-11-27 08:29

I would suggest to use online json viewer http://codebeautify.org/jsonviewer

I reckon there should be a mention somewhere in the entry's description that Atom is based on (in fact, is like the ur-deployment of) the Electron framework [https:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electron_(software_framework)! Broken URL, please copy excluding the exclamation, paste and amend].

Maybe mention in props, that alternative is CudaText.

The download link on the page for version 3.1.00 links to a Softpedia page from which you can download version 3.2.0.0, either as an exe installer or as Bat_To_Exe_Converter.exe or as Bat_To_Exe_Converter_(x64).exe as binaries).

This might be nice if it had colour syntax highlighting for the different regex elements. What *IS* good about this simple tester is that, unlike Expresso, it will test PCRE.

Billo255 on 2016-10-18 04:38

Just an FYI - Tried a couple times to download and then tried to access the authors website and got a Connection Timed Out and Problem Loading Page errors. Don't know if it's a permanant thing. Poked around and found version 1.4 on Softpedia. Also found on SharewareJunction but SJ redirects to www.waterproof.fr so got the same time out error.

Billo255 on 2016-10-21 23:26

Okay. Looks like the site is accessible again. It's magic. But why is a 2006 app being marked as new on PF. Was it just recently discovered? Just a curiosity question.
