  1. 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.

      • Improve Tidy Up functionality

        As far my experience goes using dotnetfiddle.net, the "Tidy Up" functionality only remove unnecessary lines reducing code readability

        • Auto Inclusion of Libraries

          Libraries should be automatically included just like an IDE does.

          For example: For some of the functions I have to:
          "Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic" <--- example functions: Ubound, Lbound

          And if i want to use regex then i have to include this:
          "Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions"

          There should be an option to automatically include all imports and remove unused imports.

          • work on projects as a whole and being able to download them after

            Allow you to work on whole projects instead of a single at a time. Having the tree listed on the side allowing you to jump from page to page and looking more like a whole project. Also being able to download your project when it's completed

                  • Simplify "Console.WriteLine"

                    I'd like to have an option do not use "Console.WriteLine"...

                    Instead of
                    ===============================
                    using System;
                    using System.Globalization;
                    using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

                    public class Program
                    {
                    public static void Main()
                    {
                    Console.WriteLine("Hello World");
                    Console.WriteLine(DateTime.Now.ToString("d", CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("es-CL")));
                    Console.WriteLine(Regex.Replace("tot{o}", "{O}", "*", RegexOptions.IgnoreCase));
                    }
                    }
                    ===============================

                    use simplified code like:
                    ===============================
                    using System;
                    using System.Globalization;
                    using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

                    ?"Hello World"
                    ?DateTime.Now.ToString("d", CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("es-CL")))
                    ?Regex.Replace("tot{o}", "{O}", "*", RegexOptions.IgnoreCase)
                    ===============================

                      • Flush the Console Buffer after run

                        I'm creating some samples for a project, and when using Console.WriteLine inside Tasks, the messages usually won't appear in the log window.

                        I'm currently required to add a "Thread.Sleep(1000)" or "Task.Delay(1000)" to allow the console buffer to appear.

                        It would be much better for everyone if this was handled by .NET Fiddle by default.

                        • User defined default template

                          Please allow users to have default templates and custom usings on loading.
                          Different users use different nuget packages and namespaces and want to have them declared when launching the website instead of having to add them manually each time anew.

                          • F5 should run code, blocking default browser behavior

                            This is a very essential feature as people are used to hit F5 to run code, and instead all their work is gone.
                            Please also show a confirmation message if user clicks the browser refresh button.

                                      • Support C# snippets (like in VS)

                                        Could you add support for snippets? E.g. typing 'ctor' and pressing 'Tab' key 2 times should generate a class constructor just as it does in Visual Studio.
                                        For some developers it could increase productivity.

                                        • Vi Emulation Mode

                                          Some of us who have joined the "dark side" of the force enjoy finding at least minimal Vi emulation modes, with most common edit operations available. However, a more complete version of Vi emulation would be nice, but adding regex would be drop-in, right?
