Hackvertor is a tag-based conversion tool that supports various escapes and encodings including HTML5 entities, hex, octal, unicode, url encoding etc.

  • You can use multiple nested tags to perform conversions.
  • Tags can also have arguments allowing them to behave like functions.
  • It has an auto decode feature allowing it to guess the type of conversion required and automatically decode it multiple times.
