Bookmarklet (All Browsers)

javascript: (function() { var s = document.createElement('script'); s.src = '//ember-extension.s3.amazonaws.com/dist_bookmarklet/load_inspector.js'; document.body.appendChild(s); }());

Internet explorer will open an iframe instead of a popup due to the lack of support for cross-origin messaging.

For development:

  • run pnpm serve:bookmarklet
  • create a bookmark (make sure you unblock the popup when you run the bookmarklet):
javascript: (function() { var s = document.createElement('script'); s.src = 'http://localhost:9191/bookmarklet/load_inspector.js'; document.body.appendChild(s); }());

Building and Testing:

Run pnpm install && pnpm add -g ember-cli to install the required modules.

  • pnpm build to build the files in the dist directory
  • pnpm watch To watch the files and re-build in dist when anything changes (useful during development).
  • pnpm test To run the tests in the terminal
  • pnpm start To start the test server at localhost:4200/testing/tests

Deploy new version:

See RELEASE.md

Locking a version

We can take a snapshot of the current inspector version to support a specific Ember version range. This allows us to stop supporting old Ember versions in main without breaking the published inspector for old Ember apps. It works by serving a different inspector version based on the current app's Ember version.

The Ember versions supported by the current inspector are indicated in the emberVersionsSupported array in package.json.

Here are the steps to lock an inspector version:

  • Release a new version (See "Minor and major versions") if there are unreleased commits in main. Skip this step if there are not new commits after the last release.
  • Makes sure you have a config/secrets.json file with the correct AWS credentials to push to S3. You can use config/secrets.json.sample as a starting point.
  • Create a new branch (from main) named after the Ember version range that will be supported by this branch. The min version in the range is the first element in the emberVersionsSupported array in package.json. The max version in the range is the first version that will not be supported. For example, a branch named ember-0.0.0-2.7.0 means it supports Ember 0.0.0 -> 2.6.0, and a branch named ember-2.7.0-3.4.0 means it supports Ember 2.7.0 -> Ember 3.3.2.
  • Update package.json's emberVersionsSupported: add a second element that indicates the minimum Ember version the main branch will not support.
  • Commit the branch.
  • Run pnpm lock-version. This will build, and compress the panes.
  • To upload the panes to GitHub:
  • Checkout the main branch.
  • Update package.json's previousEmberVersionsSupported: add the first Ember version supported by the recently locked snapshot (the first element in the emberVersionsSupported array).
  • Update package.json's emberVersionsSupported: Take the last element from previousEmberVersionsSupported and set it as the first element in this array. Set an empty string as the second element to indicate there's currently no maximum Ember version supported yet. emberVersionsSupported array length should always be 2 indicating a [min, max] range.
  • Commit.
Example scenario

Below is an example scenario that assumes the current main branch supports Ember version 2.7.0+ and we want to lock the version such that main will support 3.4.0+. It also assumes the last Ember Inspector version released was 3.9.0.

  • Release a new inspector version 3.10.0 if there are unreleased commits in main.
  • Create a new branch from main called ember-2.7.0-3.4.0.
  • Update package.json's emberVersionsSupported from ["2.7.0", ""] to ["2.7.0", "3.4.0"].
  • Commit with message "Lock Ember version at 2.7.0-3.4.0" and push the branch.
  • Run pnpm lock-version.
  • Checkout the main branch.
  • Create a new branch from main called lock-3.4.0 (branch name here is not important).
  • Update package.json's previousEmberVersionsSupported from ["0.0.0"] to ["0.0.0", "2.7.0"].
  • Update package.json's emberVersionsSupported from ["2.7.0", ""] to ["3.4.0", ""].
  • Commit and open a PR against main.

Window Messages

The Ember Inspector uses window messages, so if you are using window messages in your application code, make sure you verify the sender and add checks to your event listener so as not to conflict with the inspector's messages.
