How to replace all links in html to markup

Regular expression to replace href to markup

I recently moved my blog from WordPress to Hugo , which involved a lot of content fixing. One of the problems was that not all HTML code was correctly transferred to markup during the export. So I needed fix (replace) all pending <a href="https://spidersoft.com.au">spidersoft</a> to [spidersoft](https://spidersoft.com.au). What we need are just two simple regular expressions. One to find links <a.*?href="(.+?)".*?>(.+?)</a> Second one to replace them in reverse order [$2]($1) You can run this in basically any IDE - Sublime will do the job, I was using PHPStorm
