x-ray

A simple HTML debugger, executable by bookmark! X-ray, a sub project of ghost.css, enables you to see the space taken up by each individual element. This is extremely useful to visually see the HTML structure of a website and identify the rogue element that is causing unexpected rendering.

Demonstration:

The project makes use of the styles from ghost.css, which is what enables you to quickly scan the page for unexpected styling. X-Ray takes Ghost and makes it toggleable by bookmark. There is no longer need to refresh the page (or manually remove the style).

Usage:

Note: this is the only page where the toggle will not function as expected, as the string matcher will match the code below, causing elements to be incorrectly removed! Try it on all your other tabs, and you shouldn't experience any problems!

Grab the code below (x-ray.js):

javascript: ( function () { const xray = document.createElement('style'); xray.innerHTML = "*{background:#000!important;color:#0f0!important;outline:solid #f00 1px!important;}"; const xraysInPage = [...document.body.getElementsByTagName("style")].filter(style => style.innerHTML === xray.innerHTML); if(xraysInPage.length > 0) { xraysInPage.forEach(style => document.body.removeChild(style)); } else { document.body.appendChild(xray) } } )();

Now drag it onto your bookmarks, or create a bookmark and paste the code in the URL/location field. Enjoy!
