Cross-Browser JavaScript Debugging: NitobiBug

NitobiBug is a browser-based, cross-browser JavaScript object logger script.

Using this debugger, you can inspect a JavaScript object to discover its members and the values of those members.

JavaScript Debugging Tool

NitobiBug intelligently discerns simple types like strings, booleans, and numbers, from complex objects like error messages and objects.

For example, to inspect an object:

var myDomObject = document.getElementById('someID');

is enough. It will present you the results in a pop-up like draggable, expandable interface.

As there are nice tools for debugging like Firebug but few are cross browser, NitobiBug works on the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 6+
  • Firefox 1+
  • Safari (Only tested 3+)
  • Opera 8+

    I’m really impressed with the solution provided by your site. What amazed me more is the free code although I haven’t checked the code yet while writing this comment but what I can say is you did a great job and a good heart to share what you know. Thank you for being generous to other programmers and I wish many more people are like you. Good luck!!!

    Firebug is really great and has an interface named Firebug lite, a web based version like Firebug-lite that works on any browse (but can not debug well in my opinion)

    Thanks for the nice comment. I’m generally sharing the nice resources I know.
