Elvis 6 bundled plug-in - Debug

Elvis 6 sample plug-in - Debug

The debug plug-in is a developer's testing plug-in to make life a little bit easier. It's available in 3 different flavors:

  1. As a tab
  2. As a dialog
  3. As an external browser version

All three share the same functionality, the flavors are there for educational purpose. The main features are exposing the properties and functions of the elvisContext.

Testing elvisContext functions

All available elvisContext functions can be tested, this can be useful when you're developing a plug-in and quickly want to test or validate the result of a function call.

Reviewing & using elvisContext properties

We advise to test and develop plug-ins using a web browser because this allows you to do proper debugging of your HTML, CSS and JavaScript. There is one limitation though, by default there is no elvisContext JavaScript variable available in the web browser.

The debug plug-in can help you to overcome this issue, it shows all elvisContext properties displayed for the client's current state, in plain and in indented mode. You can test with the elvisContext in a web browser by copying & pasting the plain JavaScript code into your HTML/JavaScript file.
