Saw Jeffrey’s post that he made a simple .net compiling environment himself named Mini C# Lab and later found the powerful Snippet Compiler, which is exactly what he was creating. this triggered me to do some search about it and like to leave a memo in this post.

It seems that Snippet Compiler was already very popular back to year 2003, many people had blogged about it and just checked Jeff Key’s tools website, the snippnet compiler had 2008 version which support .net 3.5 now. also there is addin page with code and bits to add extra features to snippet compiler. pretty nice.

As I had my rule that to seperate the dev env. with my working env., actually I had no dev env. in my daily working machine (which is vista with office 2007 and all the editing / blogging / browsing tools, except a full VS2008 dev env.). with snippet compiler it’s now convinient to test some small code on my working env. without terminal servicing to my dev machines, makes life easier…

Jeffrey had put his Mini C# Lab source code up to CodePlex, so, if like to see how this kind of tools is working, would be good to check his source code. Jeffrey’s full name is Jeffrey Lee, a MSMVP ASP.NET in Taiwan, working in IT Industry and living with his family in Taipei. I had worked with him on some projects when I was working at Taiwan. Jeffrey is a very experienced developer also had many articles published in Taiwan’s IT magazines.

Nice work! Jeff and Jeffrey…
