CircleCI Ideas

Testing Orbs

I would love a way for me to test orbs before I publish them. 

It's hard to envision what this could look like, but I sorta like the idea of being able to have a folder FULL of circleci config files, and I would want to be able to run each of them as their own CircleCI workflow using orb to be tested. 

Something like this would make making changes to orbs less risky and it could also work as documentation for the orb too.

Right now my own way of testing orbs is to publish a dev orb and then go to 3-4 projects where I use the orb, test them with the dev orb, after confirming they work go back and actually publish the orb.
