Workflow hacks -- how to prototype faster in Algorithm Lab?

Hey guys, wondering if y'all have any workflow hacks to prototype faster in Algorithm Lab? Currently, when I want to test my unfinished code or check the return of an api call, I run a backtest and setup debug messages. Quite inefficient. Am I overlooking something really simple? 

Thanks

For rapid iteration and testing fundamental concepts I'd recommend using the Jupyter research environment. Once you've tested the basic concepts translate them over to backtesting for production code.

We're working hard on improving the IDE code environment. You should start to see the improvements soon.
