voyant tools

Word Frequency Analysis

Hands Down the Best Frequency Analysis tool

Good at:

Visualizing word frequency over text body length, word counting, and much more.

Bad at:

Really big datasets, like 1-2 mb text files. its the browser anyways so id expect as much


Research Level Text analysis

This one is the most complex on the list, but can do magical things if you learn it.

Handles scraping fro a url, which is very usefull

Check out the prepare tab, has usefull tools for cleaning up your data

Creates word clouds (visualize> wordcloud)

bubble vis is cool (visualize>bubblevis)

Creates word frequency over the length of a text doc

more stuff


beautiful regex viewer

not really a text processing tool, but is my goto testing tool for regex

Check out the 'replace' tab this is great for messing with capture groups

Heres how it works

see how the << >> is added

Anything within the ( ) is what is 'captured' as a 'group' hense 'capture group'. add ( ) around what you want to replace or keep as part of your regex expression

Explain tab

very usefull for debugging a complex regex expression

This is good for when you want to have mini tests for part of a regex, especially helpfull when the regex starts to get really complex.

Example of regex not matching

Sometimes not matching is exactly what you want. so change the dropdown to match none

Now see what happens

Your test passed! awesome, this is good for seeing if there was regression with your regex

There also is a match full option too.

this is good for when you want more strict user input like a password or spacific date type

Adding ^ ( means text must start with blah)  is helpfull in this case

$ (means string ends with blah)

Usecase when developing code

Add a regexer explainer link right into the comments of the function that uses regex, this way its really easy to get a intuitive understanding of that the regex does. great communication tool with other people, or your future self

Click save and copy the link

example of what that would look like in source code

Also they have a great reference manual for regex if your not super familial with it.


Not really a tool but a collection of usefull tools for doing really simple things

Online Text Tools - Simple, free and easy to use text processing utilities
World’s simplest collection of browser-based text processing utilities. Generate, convert, replace, filter, encode, decode text, and much more.

example of a tool i used reciently

Remove all duplicate lines

See how all the duplicate "AAAA"s got removed just leaving the single one.

What I like:

1) all the options that they have for each tool

2) The non complicated language they use

very helpfull when i dont know how to do a task.

Text Processing Tool

created by me, and is a work in progress

Goal of the project:

Make manual text processing real easy, for shitty unformated data

I added this Text gen because...well.. Its just really cool....😇
