Run Firebug on iPad or iPhone
Using Firebug in iOS is easy, here’s how, as discovered by Martin Kool:
- Bookmark a web page from Safari in iOS and rename the bookmark to “Firebug”
- Tap the text region below twice and “Select All” then choose “Copy”
- Tap on “Done” and then hit the bookmarklet to activate Firebug Lite on the iPad
If you’re having troubles with the code from pastebin, head over to Martin Kool’s tumblr for another way to capture the bookmarklet. For screen real estate purposes, Firebug will look best on the iPad, but it works on the iPhone and iPod touch with Safari too.
You probably won’t be getting tons of serious web development done with this, but it’s a great trick and definitely usable enough to make minor changes and quick adjustments to web elements while using iOS.
