  1. Specify timezone for snippet

    Sometimes I need to check a code that works with local timezone which should be different from UTC. It would be great to have an ability to specify timezone in that cases. Thank you!

    • User main page

      It would be nice to have a user page that lists the Fiddles that we have created. A main page of sorts.

          • Use monaco-editor as default editor

            Monaco-editor is MIT licensed and made by Microsft.
            It's the same text editor used in VSCode, and it is open source!
            It also has many interesting features like code diff and editor customization.

            • C# 7.0 support

              Roslyn 2.0 is currently in pre-release state. As we get close to RTM, dotnetFiddle will be quite useful to try or demo C# 7 features.

                • Update the list of supported frameworks

                  Given that MS have stopped supporting 4.5.1 and dotnet core has been released, it would be a good time to update the examples.

                  I would love to use .NET Fiddle in the documentation pages for my OSS projects, but I can't install the packages (I think because of the Framework verisons)

                    • Load the specified version of Json.NET rather than always loading 6.0.0.0

                      Whenever I add Json.NET as a nuget project, version 6.0.0.0 is attached rather than the selected version. For instance, in this fiddle: https://dotnetfiddle.net/6LyfRc the latest release version is selected, version 7.0.1, but "Console.WriteLine("Json.NET version: " + typeof(JToken).Assembly.FullName);" actually shows 6.0.0.0 was loaded.

                      • Allow multiple files for Console projects

                        In many cases I'd love to be able to have multiple files in a single fiddle so I don't have to throw all my classes in a single file and thus making it harder to read/understand.

                        Being able to have many files would greatly benefit explaining complex problems/scenarios.

                        • Allow downloading source code

                          Sometimes it'd be helpful to easily download the source code of a dotnetfiddle paste, either a single file or the whole paste (e.g. all files from a MVC "project")

                            • FileStream Practice

                              In order to practice streaming files and reading from files to demonstrate well written code, you need the ability to upload at least a .txt file to work with. How about you allow .txt files to be uploaded for this purpose?

                                • Support unit testing frameworks

                                  It'd be great to be able to use this for unit tests. Specifically, I think support for NUnit and XUnit would be very useful.

                                    We could create another Project type (NUnit for ex). If it is selected, Code would be divided into 2 sections: Code and Tests. Code would have the classes you need to test and Tests would have NUnit TestFixture class. Then when u run it – Output would show lists of tests and red/green next to them. Would that work? Please comment.

                                  • Culture

                                    Set Culture of the thread to the same as the browser.
                                    This way the client gets the same date formating as his computer..

                                    • Add commonly used "using" clauses by default

                                      I almost always want System, Linq, Collections, Generics and a few others in "using" clauses. I think they should be added to the blank default program, or maybe add a button to add them so I don't have to enter them manually.

                                      • Include Unity 3D's "UnityEngine" Library for C#.

                                        Include the UnityEngine Library so we can test Unity C# scripts.
