CodeLab. Experiment on your code.

Ever wanted to just quickly run a method? Or just run a little snippet of C# without having to run up a ConsoleApplication project, or set up a unit test? CodeLab provides a simple interface to evaluate expressions right next to your code.

CodeLab is a Visual Studio extension which quickly evaluates of C# expressions and creates lightweight tests.

You can rapidly define tests in the CodeLab pane - or just in your comments - and the tests run automatically when you change your code or build the project. This gives your rapid feedback on your changes, so you can experiment and prototype without the overhead of writing a giant test suite.

This is a brand new idea we're working on, and we'd love to hear what you think of it.
