This last week I had someone criticize using React component state because:
> there are no browser dev tools for inspecting [component state]
Maybe this person just forgot about the official React DevTools browser extension, maybe they didn’t know about it. Whatever the case may be, it made me realize that some people probably don’t know about the browser extension, so I thought I’d share it with you.
After considering it a bit, I decided that it would be easiest to share this with you all via a quick (8 minute) video demo of the extension so here you have it (the gif is a summary preview…)!
