Introducing the JSOM Fiddle SharePoint App

I’ve been doing a fair amount of JSOM development recently, you kinda have to if your doing a SharePoint hosted App. The problem I have always found is that you have some relatively complicated JavaScript, but the JSOM calls are not doing exactly what you expect. You need to take it out of your App and play with it…what to do?

I thought it might be interesting to have something similar to JSFiddle or DotNetFiddle for the SharePoint JavaScript Object Model. Didn’t sound too hard and to be honest it wasn’t that bad.

Anyway the result was a little App, which is available in the SharePoint store for free which allows you to prototype your JSOM code directly in the browser, against the site you want to test with.

It has nice JavaScript and HTML editors, syntax checking, sizeable panes, sample loading and the ability to save your fiddles for later. You can even add debugger; statements to debug the script in the browser.

Give it a try and let me know what can be improved. You can get it from the store here.

UPDATE: The source code is now available on GitHub.
