Hi Hunters! πŸ‘‹ After working on developer tools like Visual Studio Code and browser DevTools in the past, it's clear that our browser DevTools haven't evolved into a mobile-first world, so that's what I'm taking a stab at with Inspect. I've started by enabling iOS web debugging on both macOS and Windows. Windows is particularly important as most front-end devs are (still) on Windows, and Apple doesn't provide a way to do this officially. Next is Android to enable one-unified DevTool for mobile devices. The idea is to provide a DevTool that will compliment your editor, enable productive workflows with Inspect, while keeping your of choice editor focused on code. It's early days, but I'm launching Inspect to get the word out and validate the the concept. I already have working MVP builds that will be shared to testers soon, so signup if you are interested. I'm curious to get your feedback. What would you like to see in Inspect? /k

You could talk about the advantages of using this product instead of the device views available in standard browser dev tools? - https://developer.mozilla.org/en... - https://developers.google.com/we...

@steveruizok Inspect enables real device debugging. You debug the browser instance on the actual device. Not an emulated viewport running locally.

For a second I thought that you can actually inspect within Safari/Chrome directly on iPad or iPhone, that's revolutionary 🀯. What inspect.dev is doing is already support from Safari and Chrome.

@ckor Safari web app and webview debugging is awful compared to Chrome's device mode. If this project can improve that it'll be a major win.

@ckor Two things stand out today: 1. Brings Safari + webview debugging for iOS to Windows users. They don't have a way to do this today. 2. Brings the Chrome DevTools UI to all platforms, so you can use one DevTool UI to debug both iOS and Android. Today you have to use Safari Web Inspector which isn't loved my many, doesn't work on Windows and doesn't have React DevTools.
