User stories

To summarize what TransformTool can do for you, I've written a couple of user stories describing what I wanted to achieve with the tool.

As an application security dude, I want to take a cookie value or a form post value and apply a series of decoding/encoding operations to it
Well, go ahead. Enter some input in the text field and double click on the encoding/decoding operations you want to apply to your input.

As an application security dude, I want to work with several encoded strings simultaneously
You just love fiddling around with encoded stuff don't you? Use the "New document" button, or press Ctrl+N to create a new input.

As an application security dude, I want to take a part of a string I'm working with and apply separate transformations to it
Go ahead, but save yourself the cut 'n paste. Select the text you want to keep, and press Ctrl+N to create a new input node containing this text.

As an application security dude, I want to read input from a file
Of course you do. Use the "File open" button in the menu. Or let your spinal reflexes do a Ctrl+O.

As an application security dude, I want to write an output to a file
Why am I not surprised? Select a node, and use the menu or Ctrl+S. Just note that text nodes by default are written to file with UTF-8 encoding. "Byte" nodes, are written to file as raw bytes.

As an application security dude, I want to apply a series of decodings to an input, tamper with it, encode it as it was originally, and then send it to the so called secure web application
You can! The trick is to Ctrl+R a node. The current output will be transferred to a new input node, and the reverse transformations will be added to the new input.

As a Transformtool groupie, I want to use the keyboard to navigate around the tool
Easy: Alt+left arrow. You have to figure out yourself how to cycle the other way around.

As a {insert your job title}, I want to stop sending my employer/customer's production data to arbitrary sites on the internet
Really? In that case, stop googling for "online base64 decoder". Install TransformTool instead and base64 decode the data locally.
