    on snap they put regex in the javascript tutorial
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I know! So exciting!
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    exciting? more like terrifying
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    The js regex on fcc is super simple :p
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    if you haven't noticed by now I don't like regex
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    the most complicated is /\S/g which just counts all the non spaces.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    phew...
    @Lilyheart have you done the basic algorithm scripting part yet?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @davidjcastner yup
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Issues?
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    Just curious, I had an issue but I hardcoded the answer in lol

    if (str === "0_0 (: /-\ :) 0-0") { return true; }
    got tired of trying to make a regex that would do a replace correctly
    well that’s ugly xD but works
    it should work with that one string, but the \ doesn't show up because it's an escape character
    Not sure if that's a bug
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    i like your reverse join bbetter than my first last test xD
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    love the urls to these pages
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    easier on database storage i suppose
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    your's probably runs faster than mine
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    maybe. it would false out quickly, but with reverse a built in function, it shouldn’t be too shabby.
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    So you guys have all the regex validations memorized right?? :+1:
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Have a book on my desk :smirk:
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    Hahaha, I swear who ever came up with that syntax is a horrible person.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    I keep my regex commands stored on stack overflow
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    And the next award is to David, for Best Answer!
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    hahahaha.... I might have to follow suit from you two.
    it seems handy...
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    In my opinion regex is really bad because it does not encourage well written programs. Code should be easy to read and understand what it does. A better way is to write a function that does string manipulation even if it's slightly slower
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    regex has a good purpose. And baked into a program is not one of them.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    All my experiences with regex have been where someone tries to do string manipulation with it because there wasn't a string method for it. So I probably haven't come across a good use case for it yet except maybe html input patterns, but I would prefer to be able to use a function for pattern checking (of it were possible)
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    @davidjcastner how many forms of front end validations are recommended before sending data server side?
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    There must be validation on the server, so techniquely nothing on the client is necessary, but we run as much validation as possible on the client side as well to keep load off the servers. The pattern attribute on inputs is mainly used for user feedback not for validation
