Html Debugger is a simple IE debug tool for Windows Phone.

Windows Phone Html Debugger In Action from Sergei Grebnov on Vimeo.


Working very close with the numerous mobile web frameworks I see how often people (mostly developers) complain about the lack of the tool to debug html produced by a Windows Phone Browser. This also means that there is no way to share the page structure to get help or to just debug the page in more comfortable environment. I agree that most of the things could be debugged in IE9 desktop because IE9Mobile is very similar to IE desktop. But they are NOT EQUAL, and I saw many cases where they worked differently and I personally ran into IE9Mobile specific issues many times. So having such a tool will be a huge developer aid IMHO.

This project is my proof-of-concept ("prototype-level") implementation of such Windows Phone IE debug tool based on PhoneGap (now Cordova) framework and Weinre remote debugger.


The tool provides VERY SIMPLE implementation of the key html debug functionality:
