.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. List ALL My Fiddles on one page, or at least allow to set page size

    Why is the list limited to 10 fiddles? We should be able to see all of them, or at least have a page size option.

    • 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.

        • 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)

          • 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)
            ===============================

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                      • Add new files to fiddle "project" expecially the global.asax.cs

                        This is especially valuable with MVC fiddle type as one cannot add additional views or define their own routing.

                              • Support ScriptCS

                                ScriptCS has a syntax for loading assemblies and works better as a single file. I don't know if you plan on allowing .NET Fiddles (?...is that the plural of the thing you make in .NET Fiddle?) to load other assemblies, but I think it would be really cool to be able to do that.

                                • Support For Akka.NET

                                  Currently, dotNetFiddle throws when trying to use Akka.NET.
                                  There is an error message saying that some methods in JSON.NET are missing.
                                  We would love to have the ability to run live Akka samples from our docs site.

                                  • Enable Vim key bindings.

                                    Please enable vim key bindings. VsVim is one of the most downloaded Visual Studio extension, which is an indication of Vim key binding's popularity among .net devs.

                                    • Expression Bodied Properties

                                      The following paste is an example of code that compiles in visual studio that does not appear to be supported by dotnetfiddle: https://dotnetfiddle.net/224Hvk

                                      I was just making a quick draft to make sure I understood the way this kind of assignment behaved to find it wouldn't compile on dotnetfiddle

                                        • Keep Nuget Packages

                                          When you add a nuget reference save it in the fiddle so when you open the fiddle again, either on the same machine or a different one, the packages are still there and you don't have to search for them again
