Why did I make this plugin? Often when writing a new plugin I want to test a particular function or code snippet and see if it works properly. Usually I want to test it isolated from other code so I can hone in specifically on any errors or irregularities quickly. This typically meant that I would copy the function, paste it into a blank plugin, add the necessary actions or filters so I could visualize its results in the admin area, activate it, then test it.
Well, I got tired of doing all that. Enter the Developer’s CodeBox.
Please note: the Developer’s CodeBox is NOT a sandbox. Meaning code run in the CodeBox has the ability to do whatever it is you’re testing. If you are testing a function to add a column to your mySQL database, it will actually be added! That said, I recommend only using this plugin on a development server were testing code won’t do any damage. You’ve been warned!
This plugin uses the syntax highlighting script found here: http://www.cdolivet.com/index.php?page=editArea
