I’m trying to isolate some fashion sizes in a string into two individual datapoints.
Ie. if i get XXS/XS i want to get “XXS” isolated and then with a second regex get “XS”.
For that i have just used group 1 on
for the first size and
to grab the second size
However i have come into some new weird combinations being a value:
S1 – XXS/XS-S/M
How would i go about ensuring that my regex in this case grabs XXS/XS as the first value and S/M as the second value, while also ensuring that i also get XXS as the first value and XS as the second value if the string was simply “XXS/XS” OR 40 and 42 with “40-42”?
Simply can’t figure out the best way to do this – hope some bright minds know a great way to do so! I can system wise “only” support one regex for getting the first value and a second regex for getting the secondary value. My system only catches group 1.
My code is based around python, so usually use pythex.org to validate that it works in python.
I think you can use
See the regex demo.
Note the regex above contains two capturing groups that hold your necessary values.
If you need to get Group 1 always, then you need to simply remove the unnecessary pair of parentheses from the regex above and keep just a single capturing group.
(?i)– case insensitive inline modifier option
([a-zd]+(?:[/-][a-zd]+)?)– one or more alphanumeric chars, and then an optional occurrence of
-followed with one or more alphanumeric chars
([a-zd]+(?:[/-][a-zd]+)?)– Group 2: (same as the first group pattern).
