StringReplacer Plugin (useful with Fantastick Plugin)

plugin string replace find template fantastick


This plugin is a generic string replacement sort-of thing.

StringReplacer.zip: Includes 3 dynamic plugins for doing string replacements. The most useful of these 3 plugins is StringReplacerSpreadable. These plugins are very useful for injecting information from your vvvv patch into your Fantastick JS code.

For Example:

Hello, my name is $1, I am feeling very $2, how about you, $3, are you $2?

$1 = John, $2 = happy, $3 = Bill

Hello, my name is John, I am feeling very happy, how about you, Bill, are you happy?

without looking into the plugins, but doesn't do Substitute (String) exactly that?

gilbi 31/05/2011 - 17:13

Thanks Kalle, that will be useful in the future. This plugin is a lot faster than Substitute when you use the Enabled pin, but obviously making a module wrapping Substitute with an Enabled pin would be very easy.

gilbi 31/05/2011 - 20:59

I take that back, not so easy in fact. Substitute is not spreadable in the same way that StringReplacerSpreadable is.

I also haven´t had a look at it :) But what comes to mind when reading the description is vux & dep´s
RegExpr (String Replace).

gilbi 01/06/2011 - 00:56

I was actually using RegExpr before I created this module. Similar problems are involved with RegExpr as far as spread-ability and possibly performance as well.

bjoern 01/06/2011 - 11:44

Concerning speed and spread-ability, hard to tell since there is no help patch that shows the intended use.

antokhio 09/10/2012 - 01:20

it's possible do modif this so we have custom string instead of $1 $2 since
i need to rewrite file but string might be different like 4- launchpad replace with launchpad... something like that
