This feature is new "inspect element" mode that allows you to Inspect an element in VS Code. When clicking instead of seeing the element in a DOM Explorer, you instead see the source file for the component that created the DOM element. Think of this as the DOM explorer for the Component-age, or a built-in React DevTools like experience in Browser Preview.

Prototype is hacked together for React.js, and demo is showing a out of box create-react-app.

Actions:

  • Add inspect button to toolbar
  • Get position for DOM element
  • Resolve position into DOM element id
  • Add rendering of element highlighting in Canvas
  • Map DOM element ID to source position using https://github.com/auchenberg/element-to-source
  • Open file in VS Code

Supported frameworks

Powered by https://github.com/auchenberg/element-to-source/, and validated in

  • React / Create React App
  • React / Next.js
  • Svelte

@auchenberg Any more work planned on this? It's a killer feature, and you have enough users that putting out a partially-working "alpha" version might get some traction for contributions. (Especially amongst devs involved with unsupported frameworks.)

@yozlet Needs a refactor, and highlighting needs to be adjusted to the new emulation mode, so a bit of work ahead.

@yozlet First version has been released. Handling of scaled viewports still needs to get there.
