Editing in the Chrome debugger

The Solution to Editing in the Chrome debugger is


I came across this today, when I was playing around with someone else's website.

I realized I could attach a break-point in the debugger to some line of code before what I wanted to dynamically edit. And since break-points stay even after a reload of the page, I was able to edit the changes I wanted while paused at break-point and then continued to let the page load.

So as a quick work around, and if it works with your situation:

  1. Add a break-point at an earlier point in the script
  2. Reload page
  3. Edit your changes into the code
  4. CTRL + s (save changes)
  5. Unpause the debugger
