re: My favorite front-end debugging hack VIEW POST


Is there a reason why you'd use this over the built in UI breakpoint additions in the inspector (break on: subtree modification, attribute modification, node removal)?


That's definitely an option! Depending on the case it may not be as predictable as the hack, since sometimes nodes in the DOM are inserted before being displayed/styled.


If you're using a framework like react then the UI breakpoints kinda don't work because all of the DOM updates are batched and scheduled.
