Vorlon.js - Remotely Test and Debug JavaScript Code

In this post we are going to discuss about Vorlon.JS, an open source tool for remotely debugging and testing your JavaScript. The good thing about this is, it is powered by node.js and socket.io. Importance of Vorlon.js is that it helps you to remotely debug (connect upto 50 devices simultaneously) and test your JavaScript code running on any device, with the help of a web browser.

To Setup Vorlon you need to install it using npm npm i -g vorlon and then run vorlon. It will start your server on port 1337. You need to enable Vorlon.JS by adding <script src="http://localhost:1337/vorlon.js"></script> tag to your app.

Similar product was also available in the name of weinre (Web Inspector Remote), which is a debugger for web pages. The main difference between weinre and Vorlon is weinre only supports Chrome browser whereas you can run Vorlon on any browser.

Vorlon.js comes with four core plugins Console, Modernizr, DOM Explorer and Object Explorer. Console will stream console messages from the client to the dashboard. DOM Explorer shows you dom of the remote webapp. Modernizr will show you the supported browser features. Object Explorer will show you all JavaScript variable living on the remote page.
