Yet more Ajax debugging

neillzero on #rubyonrails pointed us at this Greasemonkey script (blog post about it) which is even more appropriate for debugging Ajax stuff than the other techniques I’ve mentioned here. In addition to showing you the requests, it even lets you modify requests. As the author says:

Each individual XMLHttpRequest invocation will get listed there, with all the details on the request and the response, as well as options to edit and replay the request or replay the response callback.

Neato.

  2. Hey Amy, Thanks for the link. Glad to hear some RubyOnRails folks are using my script too ;-)

    It allows you to tweak a local copy of an XMLHttpRequest-enabled web page without having to prop it to the server every time. Basically it works around the security restriction in Firefox that wouldn’t let the javascript in a file:/// page connect to a http:// service.
