The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

JS fiddle is awesome. I use it on the regular, but if you're tinkering with server-side or isomorphic JS it's much, much safer to just run it via node directly on your machine. Even for really simple stuff, its command line interpreter will handle things perfectly. Just as long as you don't need a DOM or styles for your quick and dirty testing.
