Data mining: auto-tagging rules with regular expressions 2018-04-17T12:10:06+00:00

Data-mining: auto-tagging rules and tags

Here you can find sets of auto-tagging rules and tags, that you can use to data-mine information by scraping your drives and matching the content of your files to patterns (based on regular expressions).


The files listed here can be imported in your Tabbles database from the menu File > Tabbles databases’ > Import data from XML zipped (there is no undo, so make sure you know what you are importing! ūüôā )

You can of course create your own rules and edit or delete the existing ones. If you import the file twice, the rules and tags will not be duplicated (unless you have renamed them).

Import auto-tagging rules for data mining, with regular expressions


To start scraping a drive, you have to right click on a drive in Tabbles, then click on  Folder menu and then on Apply auto-tagging rules.

Sensitive Info #1

This is a first attempt to put together a list of auto-tagging rules to scrape and auto-tag. Most of the regex where found on  RegExLib. This list contains rules to match:

  • Name of all the danish cities with more than 2500 inhabitants (around 1000 cities)
  • Credit card numbers from the major credit card companies (Visa, Mastercard, Amex…)
  • Danish CPR number (check on wikipedia)
  • Email addresses (RFC 5322 Official Standard)
  • ¬†Italian Codice Fiscale (check on wikipedia)
  • USA Social security codes (this regex gives a lot of false positives, but since the pattern is so simple, it’s to be expected)
