Can anyone else set breakpoints in the FCC Editor?


#1

I have tried, repeatedly, to set breakpoints in the FreeCodeCamp editor, but it’s never worked. Is there a trick to this, or will I have to simply copy all my code to an offline editor and wrap all of it in HTML?

Any help is appreciated!

Correct, we can’t set breakpoints in the Free Code Camp editor. You may be able to set up breakpoints with your browser’s dev tools though. I used https://codepen.io for all of my JS Challenges and added console.log() statements where needed to debug. A lot of people seem to like this website to visualize what their code is doing as a form of debugging as well: http://www.pythontutor.com/visualize.html#mode=edit
