TRegex: A Regex Crossword Solver

At www.regexcrossword.com, you can find many addictive puzzles spelling out cute phrases using Regex. After an hour or two of playing around with it, Arianna Lanz decided to write a program to solve it for her. Using a depth-first search backtracking algorithm, Arianna discovered the challenges of creating a solver in JavaScript, but was able to make one using Python! She is currently working on a scraper, so that she doesn't have to input the Regex clues herself.
