Bringing Edge's DevTools to VS Code for Debugging Web Apps

with Chris Heilmann

When building web apps, developers know they need to switch between the editor and the browser to test their code, and that's a lot of context switches! What if you could use the DevTools from your Chromium-based Edge browser directly in VS Code?

In this session we'll show you how we were able to bring the DevTools into the editor, and what we had to do to make this complex extension talk to editor and browser and stay accessible and easy to use at the same time.
