Down and Dirty with Chrome Developer Tools

Skipping Frameworks

Often times in debugging a web app, you do not want to step inside framework code, such as jQuery or lodash. Under the Experiments section of the settings, enable Enable frameworks debugging support. Once enabled, a new option in the settings should appear Skip stepping through sources with particular names. The field expects a regular expression file name.



Open up the developer tools and refresh the page which should automatically break. Enable skipping frameworks support for lodash. In stepping into the lodash.reduce call, examine the difference when it is enabled and disabled.
