DOMListener is a simple tool that provides convenient interface for observing DOM changes (node removal and addition, attribute and text modifications). Events can be filtered with ease, affected nodes can be highlighted with a single click.



You can get this extension in the Chrome Web Store or download it from github and manually load as an 'Unpacked extension' via chrome extensions page.


Open Chrome DevTools and navigate to the "DOMListener" panel. From here you can:

  • start listening/recording DOM changes ("Record" button),
  • filter types of events using checkboxes in the top left corner,
  • filter nodes by providing a search query in the input field,
  • highlight nodes by clicking on their names and
  • inspect nodes by holding Shift and clicking on their names.

How does it work?
