IE용 자바스크립트 디버거 CompanionJS

IE8에는 자바스크립트 디버거가 포함되어 있지만 그전 버전에는 디버거가 없어서 자바스크립트 디버깅하기가 여간 짜증나는 일이 아니다. ‘FirefoxFirebug같은 도구가 왜 없는거야 !!’ MS에 불평만 하고 있었는데 정말 괜찮은 도구를 발견했다. CompanionJS. 웹개발하시는 분들은 꼭 다운받으세요.


Companion.JS (pronounced Companion dot JS or CJS) is a Javascript debugger for IE.
The current version is 0.5.
Companion.JS adds the following features to IE :

  • Detailled javascript error reporting (call stack and real file name where the error occured).
  • “Firebug”-like Console API feature.
  • Javascript console feature useful to inspect javascript objects at runtime.
  • A toolbar icon to open the Companion.JS panel.

Download the installer, guaranteed spyware/malware free and packaged with a straightforward and complete un-installer.

(Download zipped intaller for people unable to download .exe files due to proxy limitations)

To be able to use Companion.JS you’ll need to have a Microsoft script
debugger installed. There are many cases where you already have this
component install. To check if you need it see Installing Companion.JS for details.

Here are some screenshots :
