Developer tools


Hi new to Atom and dev tools in general, i heard that you can use dev tools for my code inside Atom but everytime i open dev tools i only get the atom source code and not my source code that i currently have open? what am i doing wrong, sorry if stupid question :wink:


The dev tools built-in to Atom are to help with developing Atom and packages for it, not for code outside of Atom. Sorry :frowning:


For some cases, you might be able to use the dev tools to work with code that you have previewed via a package, but that code is still going to be constructed inside Atom and so you’ll have a lot of other stuff happening around it. Opening it in a browser is still the best option.
