The String Replace app simply does what the name says: it replaces strings in incoming textfiles, private data or attached metadata.
You could use this app for example to replace some strings in an incoming XML file, without having to write a complete XSLT.
In version 2 support for a text-encodings is added.
In version 3 support for a different separator-symbol is added.
In version 4 support for a metadata and private data is added.
String Replace has been an invaluable tool in my flows. Using it to replace variables inside an xml, private data, and to correct certain bad xmls. Easy to use and understand. (Just make sure there are no spaces on either side of the separator "=")
Easy to use, but for more complex replacements the manual is lacking in terms of good examples.
Such a great app! I don't know how to code but can do so much with this little app. Had a problem with an xml string and got a very quick response. Love this app, and seems like good people too...
Great app that does what it suppose to. It would be of great help if you could add some use cases och escape sequenses for replacing linebreaks, punctuation and other characters in the documentation.
I would give this app at least 10 stars.
Very thankful for this app.
As we are not coders, this app serves an essential function for us.
Example: Our latest use (there are many) is where we use String Replace to convert XML into HTML and then convert the HTML to a PDF (automatically via Switch). We then take the PDF and place it into our Proof Of Delivery docs for our shipping problem. Otherwise we would have to write code to iterate through the XML pull the data and then write it to metadata as HTML.
This app is a lifesaver for us non-coders!
