Online Development Tools

Not content with the tools found on the Internet, I've written a number of online utilities for my own modest needs...

  • DNS Lookup – Performs a series of DNS, IP and Whois lookups. Searches are recursive, so all the relevant information is shown right away.
  • Text Conversion – Online text encoder & decoder to convert between Base64, hexadecimal, quoted printable, JSON/Java strings, URL-encoding, XML-encoding, UTF-8 and more.
  • Cryptographic Hashing – Calculates a number of cryptographic hashes (such as CRC-32, MD5, SHA-1 and SHA-256) from your input. Useful for verifying passwords, hashed keys and similar.
  • Hex File Viewer – Open files in the online hexadecimal file viewer to show binary data, meta-data and generate data URI:s for images.
