Use Boop-GTK to easily convert text (scriptable Scratchpad for developers)

Many operations are usually performed by pasting text that may contain confidential information into shady websites, such as Base64 encoding, JSON format, hexadecimal format to RGB, HTML encoding, Minimizing CSS, etc.

This is where Boop-GTK This is a simple editor for pasting text and performing some operations on it. The application comes with more than 50 scripts, including scripts for performing the operations I have mentioned above, as well as:

  • Remove all newlines
  • Count characters/lines/words
  • Convert text to uppercase or lowercase
  • JavaScript evaluation
  • Format CSS / JSON / SQL / XML
  • PHP deserialization
  • Delete duplicate rows
  • Remove slashes (escaped text)
  • SHA 256/512 hash
  • Sort rows
  • URL encoding/decoding
  • There are a lot more

Of course, you can perform all these operations from the command line (some operations are easier than others), but thanks to the use of Boop-GTK, you can concentrate all these operations in one place through an easy-to-use interface.

The interface of Boop-GTK is very simple. You have a text input field and a keyboard shortcut or button to launch its command panel, where you can find all available scripts and their descriptions. There is also a menu button that can be used to open the script configuration directory and reset the script to default values.
