console.log("some debug message");But for a lot of us, that's the extent. Maybe we use
console.error, but there is so much more to the console. For example,
console.grouplets you nest statements in a group. The following snippet:
console.log('hello, I am outside the group'); console.group(); console.log('I am in the group'); console.log('me too'); console.groupEnd(); console.log('I am also outside the group');Produces an output of
hello, I am outside the group I am in the group me too I am also outside the groupWhile the console should only be used for debugging (and there are better libraries for just printouts like debug) and is not necessarily standard across browsers, it can be a really powerful tool.
