JS Regular Expression Tester
The app is a small Ruby (Sinatra) app, purely as that was the quickest thing I could use to get it online through Heroku, where it currently lives. I guess I should have made it a Node app...but Sinatra was quicker for me personally to through a quick site together, and keep all the logic on the front-end.
It also makes use of the jQuery highlightTextarea plugin by Damien Sorel.
Pull requests, bug reports and so on are much appreciated. If you're a designer and fancy making this look pretty, feel free.
