Sometimes you face tricky decisions you need to make before implementing a solution. In these situations, you need to have a spike in order to figure if an option can become part of that solution. Spikes take time, whether they concern technology stacks to pick or similar functions within a framework. Luckily for us, more and more benevolent souls implement fiddlers that allow reproducing scenarios we want to test. Other times you are trying to check that formatting you worked on for hours is correct. Rejoice, for that now you can. These tools are a great help because they save you time and a potential headache setting up stuff you might never need. This is a list of fiddlers I find useful.
- dbfiddle: This is a simple but effective tool allowing you to test a great variety of scenarios. It supports the latest versions Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLServer and so on.
- JSON formatter: This one is pretty straightforward, you put the alleged JSON in the input and in an instant you know what’s up.
