Perhaps you had a code snippet you wanted to try quickly without the necessity of creating a new, dedicated development environment. The BoldGrid plugin helps address this need with custom code editors built in.

The custom code editors available in the Advanced section of the Customizer let you try out custom CSS and JavaScript code right away and see immediate results. For experienced developers or beginners just getting started, the ability to add code without editing source files is a powerful option for design and development.
