neeno26375dHow about using regex?
Not sure about the questions and answers place but have you considered using GraphQL?
I hope this is just for fun/as an exercise.
neeno26375d@WhiskeeDev it seems very intimidating at first but once you get into it it's quite simple. It gets confusing once you start using lookaheads and lookbehinds, but you're probably not going to need those.
Push yourself to learn regex, it's very useful.
Take a look at https://regex101.com, it'll make your life 100 times easier.
polv175dQuality of technical discussion websites are hard to make.
StackOverflow might have gone a wrong way. (Reputation / downvote-and-gone systems?)
Dev.to is failing.
I want to hope for Reddit, Hackernoon, devRant, Hashnode; but maybe I hope too much.
DEV.to and Hashnode may be your best bets.
Also, you don't have to learn the entirety of RegExp to use it; you can start with simple stuff and expand from there.
And as @neeno said, have a look at regexp101.com, it's a great tool where you can see how an expression matches input you provide and it also breaks down your words and the results (on top of having a tutorial there).
