Source Mapsλ︎

Source Maps show you what ClojureScript code created the running JavaScript to aid with debugging.

Ensure source maps are enabled in the browser developer tools.

Chrome DevTools Extensions for ClojureScript developersλ︎

DevTool Extensions add more better presentation of ClojureScript values in Chrome DevTools using custom formatters, more informative exceptions with sanity hints) and support for Dirac DevTools - a fork of the Chrome DevTools.

Install DevTools Extensionsλ︎

Add devtools dependency into your Leiningen's project.clj using the details on the website

Add the DevTools extensions to the startup part of your ClojureScript using the (:require [devtools.core :as devtools]) expression. Then call install! function from devtools.core namespace.

Here is an example of adding the DevTools extension library and calling it with several options

(ns your-project.core
  (:require [devtools.core :as devtools]))

; this enables additional features, :custom-formatters is enabled by default
(devtools/enable-feature! :sanity-hints :dirac)

(.log js/console (range 200))

For more details, visit the DevTools Extensions website and clone the sample project.
