New cartoon - VIM

We just added a new cartoon to our web comic! The new cartoon is called VIM.

How do you generate a random string? ... Put a web designer in front of VIM and tell him to save and exit.

Browserling's web comic is about web designer jokes, web developer jokes, and browser jokes. We're adding new cartoons every week. Share them with your friends, tweet them, subscribe to updates and follow us @browserling on Twitter!

Have fun and until next time!

We've added 7 more programming tools!

In December we launched Browserling's Web Developer Tools (Announcement Post), and last week we added a bunch more tools.

We created these Developer Tools because we noticed that we were repeatedly searching for things like "convert json to xml" or "js minify", and we'd end up on different websites each time, some of them low quality and spammy. So we created simple tools with no ads, useless checkboxes or weird configuration options. All tools have the same interface and work exactly the same - press button, get result.

Today we've added 7 more tools that web developers, software engineers and programmers often use:

Here's a list of all 35 tools that we've created so far:

  • URL Encoder - URL-escape strings (convert special URL characters to %XX percent-sign encoding.)
  • URL Decoder - URL-unescape strings (convert strings with %XX characters in them back to regular strings.)
  • HTML Encoder - HTML-escape strings (convert special HTML characeters to HTML entities.)
  • HTML Decoder - HTML-unescape strings (convert strings with HTML entities back to regular strings.)
  • JSON Prettify - Pretty-print and beautify JSON data structures (add spaces and indentation between JSON data.)
  • JSON Minify - Compress JSON data structures (remove spaces, tabs and indentation between JSON data.)
  • JS Prettify - Pretty-print and beautify JavaScript code (add spaces and indentation in JavaScript code.)
  • JS Minify - Compress JavaScript code (remove spaces, tabs and indentation in JavaScript code.)
  • HTML Prettify - Pretty-print and beautify HTML code (add spaces and indentation between HTML tags.)
  • HTML Minify - Compress HTML code (remove spaces, tabs and indentation between HTML tags.)
  • CSS Prettify - Pretty-print and beautify CSS stylesheets (add spaces and indentation between CSS selectors.)
  • CSS Minify - Compress CSS stylesheets (remove spaces, tabs and indentation between CSS selectors.)
  • XML Prettify - Pretty-print and beautify XML data (add spaces and indentation between XML tags.)
  • XML Minify - Compress XML data (remove spaces, tabs and indentation between XML tags.)
  • JSON-to-XML Converter - Transform JSON data to XML data (create valid XML from valid JSON.)
  • XML-to-JSON Converter - Transform XML data to JSON data (create valid JSON from valid XML.)
  • Base64 Encode - Base64-encode strings (convert UTF8 and ASCII strings to base64 encoding.)
  • Base64 Decode - Base64-decode strings (convert strings in base64 encoding back to regular UTF8 or ASCII strings.)
  • ROT13 Encode/Decode - Encode and decode strings and text using ROT13 algorithm.
  • AES Encrypt - Encrypt plain text using AES encryption algorithm. (Useful for quickly sharing private data on the internet.)
  • AES Decrypt - Decrypt AES encrypted data to plain text.
  • RC4 Encrypt - Encrypt plain text using RC4 encryption algorithm.
  • RC4 Decrypt - Decrypt RC4 encrypted data to plain text.
  • Generate MySQL Passwords - Generate a MySQL or MariaDB password (convert plain text to MySQL PASSWORD.)
  • MD4 Hasher - Calculate MD4 hashes of strings and text.
  • MD5 Hasher - Calculate MD5 hashes of strings and text.
  • SHA1 Hasher - Calculate SHA1 hashes of strings and text.
  • SHA512 Hasher - Calculate SHA512 hashes of strings and text.
  • SHA256 Hasher - Calculate SHA256 hashes of strings and text.
  • CRC32 Hasher - Calculate CRC32 hashes of strings and text.
  • Text-to-Hex Converter - Convert strings and text to hex (and format it.)
  • Unix-to-UTC Time Converter - Transform UNIX timestamps to human-readable UTC time. (Useful if you store date as UNIX time in database.)
  • Long-Decimal-to-IP Converter - Transform long-decimals (integers) to IP addresses. (Useful if you store IP addresses as long-decimlas in database.)
  • IP-to-Long-Decimal Converter - Transform IP addresses to long-decimals (unsigned integers).
  • UTC-to-UNIX Time Converter - Transform UTC time (and other time formats) to UNIX Epoch timestamp.

We're adding more tools in the next few months. Check back and visit Browserling's Web Developer Tools. Until next time!
