ng-inspector for AngularJS 0.5.10


i followed the same steps as you show to add extension ng-inspector for AngularJS 0.5.10, but it was not working(

I tested ng-inspector for true car website, working fine as you shown. but it was not showing up any thing for my sample application. Do i need to follow any additional steps to make it work for small projects like ours?

please help me.

Thank you.

You should not have to do anything special but inspector can be a bit fussy on detecting angular and the proper scope. Especially there are multiple ways to set up angular.

  • What project are you currently trying to use it on?
  • Are you getting an error that it cannot find angular or is it opening up with no scope shown?

It seems to be working for me in the untouched workspace.

I found out that you need to be running it on a server, rather than just viewing it via the "file:///" method in your browser. I ended up downloading Mongoose (https://backend.cesanta.com/mongoose.shtml) and running that in the folder containing the index file. I believe this would also work with a XXAMP or MAMP etc. server. This solved the issue for me.

Ahhh this seems to be common with many extensions. Chrome does not give extensions full access to local files without some special workarounds. Primarily for security.
