HDRI Material Override Toolbar

Simple floating 'toolbar' example where you can quickly toggle reflection override for the current viewport (any custom picked hdri map will work) and set its rotation. Since it's just a viewport override, all the materials applied to the objects will be left untouched. Comes in handy for example when checking for shading errors.

The HDR image used in the gif comes from the Zebra Stripe Diagnostic tutorial page.

Additional Info: 

Installation: you can either run it as a regular script or, if you prefer to have the toolbar always accessible, put it in your ENU\scripts\startup folder. The toolbar location and the hdr file used are persistent across sessions
