          • Allow private main

            The .net compiler for real stuff doesn’t require the class `Main()` is in to be public nor `Main()` itself to be public. In fact, there’s no reason to write any access specifier in code since it doesn’t need to be public and is just extra noise, so I normally don’t in my one-off programs. Even [the VS templates for simple console apps](https://gist.github.com/binki/1f8ed17ed87cf4e78d3771d6f77cd0f9) uses `private` (by allowing the default access by omitting the keyword).

            Because .net fiddle doesn’t support this, it is impossible to copy/paste simple programs from VS into it to share with others with all the output,…

              • 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.

                  • Public API for widget

                    I would like to embed the Widget on my and to preform functions on it such as load a snippet to the editor or append and remove lines.

                    • Indentation problem with anonymous function

                      See this example: https://dotnetfiddle.net/nGSHTF

                      Typing return at the end of line 7 creates a new line with the wrong indentation. Adding spaces around the equals sign on line 8 causes the line to jump to the wrong indentation level.

                      This seems to be related to the code on line 7 which splits a string into an array of integers.

                        • 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)

                          • Have `console` output handle *markdown* (optionally)

                            It would be cool to mark some words as `code` and others as *emphasized*.

                                  • Automapper Assembly loading issue

                                    I have added Automapper v4.2.1 to create some snippets and getting the below error.
                                    Run-time exception (line -1): Could not load type 'AutoMapper.MapperConfiguration' from assembly 'AutoMapper, Version=3.2.1.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=be96cd2c38ef1005'.

                                    It looks like that you need to add an assembly redirect field in config to map to take the version added.

                                    Please refer the below fiddle for more

                                      • Allow Postsharp

                                        With postsharp AOP is available for C#. I wanted to try out a sample code at postharp. I downloaded the nuget package, but it didn't work.

                                        PostSharp extends the C# and VB languages with a notion of pattern. The result: shorter, cleaner code that’s easier to write and understand, contains fewer defects and is less expensive to maintain.

                                        • Garbage Collection

                                          Is GC.Collect() implemented? With the 10-MB memory limit. A loop of 75k calls to MD5 ComputeHash runs out of memory. I cannot find a way to recycle memory.
