Debugging Web Apps

Included as part of WebKit, Web Inspector is a useful debugging and profiling development tool for web content. You can use this tool to troubleshoot and optimize your web content for your apps. The tool includes a variety of features and capabilities, such as inspection, profiling, console integration, and more.

By default, Web Inspector functionality is disabled. To use Web Inspector in conjunction with the browser, you must first enable it in the browser options. For a Cordova application, you enable Web Inspector by specifying a command-line flag at compile time. For instructions on enabling, see "Enabling Web Inspector" in this guide.

To begin debugging your app, you can install the Google Chrome browser or another WebKit browser for your platform. Once Web Inspector is enabled, you can access it using a supported device in conjunction with the Chrome browser.
