Today is a panelists episode and they are digging into the topic of Vue Devtools. For people wondering what’s the point of UX mutations, this is the whole point. There is so much the panellists are learning from each other today with tricks and shortcuts. Be prepared to have your mind blown like they did! [00:01:00] Chris gets right into business and explains what Vue Devtools are.

[00:05:51] Ben explains the “EventBus” in Devtools and what kinds of events it tracks.

[00:06:47] Ari talks about the “Vuex tabs” since that’s the tab she spends the most time in. There are two panels that she explains about.

[00:12:07] Chris blows everyone’s mind by telling them a feature that a lot of people don’t know about by clicking on the components tree and inspecting. Listen here to have your mind blown! It’s a game changer!

[00:18:39] Ben explains a “console log” trick he’s learned recently if you ever have trouble unpacking an object. This trick he talks about allows you to do it in a dropdown manner.

[00:21:34] Chris asks everyone what kinds of tricks or tools they use when they are troubleshooting by themselves.

[00:28:07] Tessa mentions something pretty cool and useful about how you can activate Vue Devtools on the production version of a website.
