Ever wanted to test out an idea or write a quick POC without having to fire up the old Visual studio? Well here is a cool little tool I found, its called snippet compiler. Its a lightweight text editor that allows you to write and compile your code without having to create a new test solution in Visual studio and all that unneccesary overhead while you are just trying to turn ideas into code. It has syntax highlighting, intellisense and it can compile console or windows applications. It doesn’t seem to have debugging though. They’ve also released a version to work with .net Framework 3.5!
