DevToys, which is basically a multi-faceted toolkit for developers, has reached version 1.0 and is ready for testing, after only a few months.

This new platform, one that promises to be the Swiss Army knife for developers, is actually an application containing several open-source tools that website and app developers need regularly.

So, if this is information that you were expecting, new details about your future favorite software have emerged.

Get ready for the Dev Toys v1.0

The DevToys app has a GitHub page, a Microsoft Store entry, as well as an individual website already, so there’s plenty of information to go around for those interested.

All three of the above-mentioned sources were updated this week to indicate that version 1.0.0.0 is now available to the general public.

Needless to say all of them claim DevToys helps in daily tasks like formatting JSON, comparing text, testing RegExp

Although a bit amusing, creators actually call DevToys the Swiss Army knife for developers, but they insist that not only other developers will find the app useful.

This latest software has a neatly organized collection of tools, arranged into groups labeled Converters, Encoders/Decoders, Formatters, Generators, Text, and Graphic.

It’s also free to download but can be re-distributed as trialware or shareware, although its developers prefer not to.

DevToys has been under development since September 2021 and has reached version 1.0.0.0 this week, with Smart Detection being one of the app’s highlights.

Enabled by default, the feature auto-detects the best tool depending on the content that is copied to the clipboard.

The app can be run locally on Windows 10 and Windows 11 PCs; developers need not have internet access to use the tools in the app.

It’s important to know that developers generally rely on third-party websites that promise to offer the functionality that DevToys has.

The creators of DevToys also allow multiple instances of the app to run at the same time which means that developers can execute multiple tasks simultaneously.

So, if this is software you want to use, or simply want to take out for a test drive, download from one of the above-mentioned sources and try it.
