Compile smart contract in the console browser

I will compile the smart contract in the console browser with metamask and web3js.

I use metamask with chrome. In console browser when I run this code
var source = "" + 
    "contract test {\n" +
    "   function multiply(uint a) returns(uint d) {\n" +
    "       return a * 7;\n" +
    "   }\n" +
var compiled = web3.eth.compile.solidity(source, function(err,res){
I have this error : Error: Error while compiling code.(…)

Is it a way to compile and deploy a smart contract directly in the the console browser ?

    The console browser/compiler is meant for compiling your smart contract. You can just paste in your solidity code and it will compile.

    There is no need to call web3.eth.compile.solidity from your code.

    Just paste the contract code and press the create button...
