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.

        I agree that a new project type would be great. I tried to run the unit tests via Xunit.Runner.Utility, but was not able to get it to work. I feel that even if I could get a workaround, it would be too complicated for much benefit.

        For a fiddle, I think it is enough to have test and code in the same window.
        Just like the Main function now, but with a test framework class and a succeeding test in the template instead.

        I sort of got NUnit working in that if the test passes, you get nothing back - else you get the error!

        My main concern was the ability to drop in tests and code in the same file and then run them and get some sort of results. I hadn't considered splitting up the code and tests, although that would make it nice and clean. Overall, that recommendation sounds excellent.

        Very much agree. Great to demo this in lunch and learns etc and just drop some test code in, get a red build then flesh out your test method.
