Description from extension meta

Adds a multiline JavaScript console to the Chrome developer tools.

Image from store BigConsole
Description from store Adds a panel to the Chrome Developer Tools that provides a multi-line split console, like in Firefox. Includes: - Vertical split style multiline REPL - Syntax highlighting and nice editor things thanks to Ace Editor - Pretty-printed output - "Run" button or CTRL+Enter to execute code - "Clear" button to clear REPL - "History" drop-down to restore previously executed code Compared to Chrome Dev Tools' built-in Snippets editor, BigConsole aims to help users iterate and try out code faster. Where Snippets is more like a light IDE, BigConsole is simpler and geared towards iterating on code as quickly as possible in a multiline, syntax-highlighted REPL. The code is available at https://github.com/IceCreamYou/Chrome-BigConsole

  • (2018-06-10) Dmitriy Davydov: I found this extension because I didn't know about Chrome Snippets https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/snippets Now I think this extension is needless
  • (2018-06-08) Chris Haynes: Works well for me, way better than Chrome's
  • (2018-04-22) M F: Good...But. The console output on the left side is useless, I would much rather see the real developer tools console and keep BigConsole just for scripting.

  • (2022-02-07, v:1.2.3) Lance Lewis: Comment Breaks BigConsole
    We noticed this issue when using BigConsole. Insert the following code: var x=2.5; // insert comment here console.log(x); This will not run. If you remove the // insert comment here it will run without issue. It appears using // comment breaks BigConsole. If you use /* */ is will run without issue.

    /* Here is the code I tried to test with this extension. It works in the console, but doesnt work within the extension in the same devtools instance. I didn't try any other code with it. */ function rob(street) { const sum = (a, b) => a + b let even = [], odd = []; street.forEach((v, i) => { if (i % 2) even.push(v) else odd.push(v) }) return Math.max(even.reduce(sum), odd.reduce(sum)) }
