Posting an exciting announcement from Microsoft:
This morning we announced Script Lab, a crazy Microsoft Garage project for anyone who wants to learn about building add-ins!
- Install from the Office Store (or https://aka.ms/getscriptlab). Works for W/X/P and Win32/Mac/Web
- Blog post
- Retweet OfficeDev’s tweet!
- Microsoft Garage site
- GitHub (or https://aka.ms/scriptab). We’re open source! Contribute code!
Script Lab (formerly known as “Add-in Playground” and “Project Bornholm”) has three main features:
Run the code in another pane beside the editor. Execution can include logic, API calls to Office, UI in the pane, and even output to a console. Every time you make a code change you can refresh the editor and run the new version in seconds.
Share your snippets through GitHub. If you create a snippet you’d like to share, you can use Script Lab to save it. Then send the link to someone else to try it and tweak it on their computer. The Import feature lets you load other people’s snippets. We think sharing will be especially useful for asking and answering questions about add-ins on Stack Overflow (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/office-js).
