Firefox w/ Firebug – Debugging AJAX

0

Found a cool feature in Firebug in that you can easily debug response codes of ajax requests made from the actual javascript (rather than hitting the ajax all page directly).

Hover over ‘Net’ in the top menu, then select ‘Enabled’. You will then see the submenu containing ‘XHR’, click it. The area below the submenu will now show you response codes from any embedded ajax requests.

HTTP Client for MAC

0

Referred by a friend, HTTP Client is an awesome app for web developers having to work with website headers and responses. On one of my projects I had to write a script to access a data provider’s database which is normally done so via browser, but because we wanted to schedule it to run everday at 2am, this would be impossible. So I ended up using Live HttpHeaders (firefox plugin) to learn what the data provider’s site was expecting so I could emulate request/responses correctly via CURL and PHP. Had I known about HTTP Client, I would much rather have used it, than the Firefox plugin.

Check out the HTTP Client website for info.
