.NET Fiddle Ideas

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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)

  2. Have `console` output handle *markdown* (optionally)

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

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Improve Tidy Up functionality

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  18. 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)
    ===============================

  20. 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.
