Between AngularJS and some work on responsive design, I’ve been using Chrome Dev Tools more and more lately. One of the things that has really impressed me is Chrome’s remote debugging. Getting it going on Ubuntu is extra easy since it turns out that the Android Debug Bridge tool is in the repos already:
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb
And then you can fire up the debug bridge and open the debug tools in Chromium in one shot with this:
adb forward tcp:9222 localabstract:chrome_devtools_remote; chromium-browser localhost:9222
And when you’re done:
That adb command is a pretty good candidate for an alias, since I don’t use is that often and need to google for it every time.
If you think that’s cool, Chrome’s Dev Tools have plenty more features to explore…
