What is the difference between Orem, Utah, USA; Munich, Germany; Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia; and St. Petersburg, Russia? Well, they are thousands of kilometers apart, span 3 climate zones from continental to subtropical, and only one of them is home to kangaroos.
What do these places share in common? They are all home to the team behind WebStorm 8.
Today this is all possible. Please welcome spy-js, a new feature of WebStorm 8 that makes all these tricks possible—and much more.
Before going further, I recommend that you watch this 7-minute video, if you haven’t already, to get a general idea of what spy-js is about.
In this post we’ll walk through the tool’s features in more detail, and I’ll share some tips and tricks to improve your experience with spy-js. I’m going to cover a range of topics, including but not limited to:
