Solving the Wedged Web App Problem with Komodo's Rx Toolkit

As part of the beta launch for ActiveState's Stackato cloud platform, we've written a Rails app that tracks the tweet activity on some of the players in the upcoming American presidential election (only less than 16 months away as I write this!). You can read more about CandidateBuzz here.

Rx 2.0 for Komodo 6.0

By Eric Promislow, November 2, 2010

Komodo's Rx Toolkit is a debugger for pattern-matching. It lets you tweak patterns (or regular expressions, also known as "regexes", hence the "Rx") against subject text, showing you the results interactively. You can choose to see a single match, all matches, replacements, or even the result of "splitting" the string on the regex. While very powerful, patterns can quickly become complex and unwieldy, so it's useful to have a tool to try them out in isolation.
