Serde Regex

Documentation | Github | Crate

A serde wrapper, that can be used to serialize regular expressions as strings. It's often useful to read regexes from configuration file.

Note: regex is read with default settings. So DoS attack is probably possible if reading regex from untrusted source. I.e. reading from config file is okay, reading from API request is not.
