There are so many things that DevTools can be used for that this course simply isn't enough to study all its possibilities. The Internet is full of articles all about the most interesting ways to use DevTools, and its hidden features. So, we'll only go through the basic features here.
All errors that occur in browser-based js are output to the console. You can not only view them, but also open the source code to see where the error appeared.
After choosing an element in this way, you can go to the
console tab and type
$0. This is how you can get access to this element.
You can use the
$() function to simplify the search for elements by selector. Compare:
document.querySelector('.row'); // Technically similar to working with jQuery, but it isn't jQuery $('.row');
console.dir outputs DOM nodes in a format that's convenient for analysis.
