CFMLVerbalExpressions is a CFML library that helps to construct hard regular expressions;

var regex = new VerbalExpression();

regex.startOfLine()
     .then('http')
     .maybe('s')
     .then('://')
     .maybe('www.')
     .anythingBut(' ')
     .endOfLine();

if (regex.test('https://github.com/')) {
    writeOutput('Valid URL');
} else {
    writeOutput('Invalid URL');
}

if (REFindNoCase(regex.toRegex(), 'https://github.com/') > 0) {
    writeOutput('Valid URL');
} else {
    writeOutput('Invalid URL');
}
