string.is is an open-source, privacy-friendly online string toolkit for developers.
Like most developers, I need to perform the same string operations regularly, but I’m paranoid about pasting sensitive data into third-party online tools.
I started to wonder what the ideal conversion tool might look like, and came up with some simple goals:
- It should be open-source.
- It should not set any cookies.
- It should have a strict Content Security Policy.
- It should be extremely opinionated about dependancies, and only use well-known, well-supported libraries.
- It should try to detect the format of the input, and intelligently choose output options.
string.is was built to meet those goals, and provide a secure, trustworthy string conversion tool.
- DevUtils by Tony Dinh is a great open-source MacOS desktop tool.
- DevToys by Etienne Baudoux is an open-source Windows desktop tool which looks very good, although I haven't tried it.
- CyberChef by the UK’s GCHQ provides an exhaustive set of conversion and crypto tools, and works both online and offline.
string.is wouldn’t exist without the following open-source libraries:
