I've watched 1 minute 18 seconds of this video. I've installed ng-inspector but nothing happens when I click on the icon.

What should I do please?

You might want to check out ng-inspector instead for Batarang, I have provided the link here. They are similar plugins but Batarang is missing a few features such as listing the controllers and directives that trigger the scope which is useful. Plus it sounds like Batarang is giving you trouble, so you might want to give ng-inspector a try

Hi Amber. I followed the link you gave me and installed ng-inspector. It's working fine now.

I've upvoted both your posts and given your last one Best Answer.

Thank you


If the page you are viewing does not include angular, a pop-up appears staying "This page does not include AngularJS" unless you have pop-ups turned off, then you will not see anything happen. The icon is also grayed out if angular is not available to view, and red if it is available for viewing. If you know the page you are viewing is running angular, you may want to uninstall and re-install the plugin.

Hi Amber. Thanks for your suggestion.

I clicked on the blue nginspect icon. This dialogue box appeared mentioning someone called Vinay Kaparthi based in Hyderabad, India. In the bottom right corner of the box is a PayPal icon. I moused over it and a tool tip came up saying "Contribute using PayPal". Clicking on the Paypal icon takes you to this person's PayPal account. I've not paid anything for this. Presumably Huston Hedinger doesn't know about this.

I did as you suggested; I uninstalled AngularJS Batarang and reinstalled it but it was greyed out again. When I clicked on it, a pop-menu appeared and "Options" was greyed out.

You actually just have to close your windows before they show up in the dev tools. I know that's annoying, but if you're using Chrome you can close your window with the red X, open a new window and then push Ctrl+Shift+T to repoen your latest closed window.
