Are you a developer? Do you often deal with text? Do you have a fairly good understanding of command line interfaces and yet cannot for the life of you remember how one can possibly perform some of the most seemingly simple tasks such as decoding a url or computing an MD5 hash from within Terminal?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, Boop might be for you. It's a magical place to paste some plain text and run some basic text operations on it. Goodbye, unreadable XML! So long, HTML entities! Au revoir, undecipherable time-stamps!

Boop allows you to get those simple tasks done in a native, safe, and welcoming environment without having to paste your precious data in some random website as many of us did before.

If you're feeling adventurous, you can import you own scripts to extend the built-in capabilities. If you're up for a challenge, Boop's open source codebase is waiting for you to bring it to the next level!

Chaoticaa ,

Works as simply as you'd expect!

As you'd epect from such a small app (but is against the modern trend of Electron apps), this has such a tiny footprint. Every script I tried worked flawlessly and instantly and I no longer need to launch incognito sessions to go all these random websites that each do 1 of the many scripts this app offers.

It's been a while since a new app found its way into a permanent slot on my dock without replacing a previous tool doing the same thing (i.e. VSCode replacing Sublime, Notion replacing Evernote, etc). Hats off to the dev! <3

Was going to give 3 stars but it gets 5 after all!

I started writing this review before fully exploring the features of this app... and frankly I am amazed and surprised at just how well done it really is. I wanted a couple features before giving 5 stars, but when I looked deeper it had everything I had hoped!

Every developer needs this

I use this app almost on a daily basis. Pretty print json/xml, convert json to yaml, remove escape characters from strings, use it as a simple text editor when I want to park some plain text, etc. And if you don't have the feature you need, just write your own javascript plugin - super simple.
