Test run component from component editor


I would like to be able to test run a component with some hand-entered inputs and inspect the output without having to leave the component building area and go into the xap editor.

This is not a high priority since it will soon be possible to work on a component directly from the xap editor and save changes, but since the intended workflow is to build a component from the component editor--it seems odd that I am unable to run that component in a controlled way from the component editor.

Additionally, I think this will be far more useful for algorithmic and api/database type components than for viz ones, perhaps.


I want this to be higher priority because running the component code in an isolated environment given various hardcoded parameters is exactly what I want in terms of unit testing.


I can't see the forum that this is in from this page. IDK if this is a bug report or feature request.
