Open source web design debug tools

  • Point, click & tinker
  • Edit or style any page, in any state, like it's an artboard
  • Hover inspect styles, accessibility and alignment
  • Nitpick layouts & content, in the real end environment, at any device size
  • Leverage adobe/sketch skills
  • Edit any text, replace any image (hi there copywriters, ux writers, pms)
  • Design within the chaos: use production or prototypes and the odd states they produce, as artboards and design opportunities
  • Design while simulating latency, i18n, media queries, platform constraints, CPUs, screensize, etc
  • Make more decisions on the front end of your site/app (a11y, responsive, edge cases, etc)
  • No waiting for developers to expose their legos, just go direct and edit the end state (regardless of framework) and execute/test an idea

Give power to designers & content creators, in a place where they currently feel they have little to none, by bringing design tool interactions to the browser

Check out the list of features me and other's are wishing for. There's a lot of fun stuff planned or in demand. Cast your vote on a feature, leave some feedback or add clarity.

Let's do this design community, I'm looking at you! Make a GitHub account and start dreamin' in the issues area! Help create the tool you need to do your job better.

🤔 It's not:

  • A competitor to design authoring tools like Figma, Sketch, XD, etc; it's a complement
  • Something you would use to start from scratch
  • A design system recognizer, enforcer, enabler, or anything
  • An interaction prototyping tool
