Rubular fans, rejoice! Jonathan Hoyt has ported the much-loved Ruby regular expression editor to JavaScript.

The result is Scriptular, which provides a simple way to test JavaScript regular expressions as you write them. Scriptular shares many of Rubular’s features. It:

  1. Lets you test multiple strings at once
  2. Displays match results
  3. Includes a handy quick reference
  4. Provides shareable permalinks

Jonathan describes Scriptular as a clone of Rubular, but this clone boasts a killer feature that the original does not: it is open source and MIT licensed!

Give the tool a try or check out the repo on GitHub.
