New Live Console in JavaScript and Node.js debugger

Maarten Balliauw

Some features are so (seamingly) simple yet so powerful. One of them is the new Live Console in the PhpStorm JavaScript and Node.js debugger. While debugging JavaScript, we can use the Console tab to execute arbitrary JavaScript code within the execution context. This means we can alter variables, call JavaScript functions, or even define additional functions on the fly.

Live JavaScript console

This feature is available in the latest PhpStorm 8 EAP. Give it a try and let us hear your thoughts! All feedback is welcome through the issue tracker, by posting in the comments below, or in our forums!

Develop with pleasure!
