JSK Weekly - 26th June, 2024

Regular expressions are on of the most powerful tools in a developer's toolkit. But let's be honest, regex kind of sucks to write. Not only is it hard to write, but it's also hard to read and debug too. So how can we make it easier to use?

This is the purpose of a package like regexpbuilderjs. Check out "Simplify Regular Expressions with RegExpBuilderJS" for the details.
