Good article. Just wanted to say I liked author’s format:
Just discovered a whole bunch of neat console.X functions I never knew existed, really interesting!
I’m sure the main challenge is to remember all those different methods and not to fallback to console.log(‘hello’)
It’s funny how, despite the immaturity of JS as a language, the browser provides all kinds of tools like this in a way that’s far easier to set up than most other languages. This, the debugger, tweaking CSS on the fly, a nice REPL…
Great post! I find that while reading about and understanding these functions exist, I am truly awed when I see them used (well) in the wild. What are some examples where you’ve seen console functions apart from .log() being used to convey a point effectively?
So far I’ve found https://react-select.com/creatable which tells you exactly what is happening when you interact with an element. It provides a neat way to tell a narrative and I think that’s a really good use of these functions.
