Join Eve Porcello for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up Chrome tools for React, part of React.js Essential Training.
- [Instructor] In an earlier video, we set up our IDE. Now, let's go ahead and install the React Developer Tool so we can work more efficiently on React projects. I'm using Chrome, so I'm going to install the developer tools as a Chrome extension. I'm just going to look for the Chrome web store. In the Chrome web store, there's a whole list of browser extensions that you can use. Right up here in the upper left-hand corner though, I'm going to search for React Developer Tools.
Excellent! The first of these is what I want to add, so I'm going to click this Add to Chrome button. I'm going to allow it to add this extension. It looks like this has been added to Chrome, so we see this little icon over here. Perfect! If you're a Firefox user, I have some good news for you also. You can install the React Developer Tools as a Firefox add-on. In the next video, we'll use this tool to further inspect a site that uses react.
