Using ng-inspector

I have started using the ng-inspector extension for Safari and Chrome. (This is kind of like Angular Batarang in that it helps you see scope variables and the connection to the DOM.)

I’ve noticed that the ng-inspector extension doesn’t work quite the same on an app in the Ionic framework as it does for other Angular apps. One difference is that the nesting of the various scopes don’t expand and collapse as they would with a vanilla Angular app.

I observed this using the ionic starter app (blank and sidemenu). Anyone familiar with this know whether there’s a fix?


Hi @aaronb, ng-inspector author here. I’ll look into this, you can follow the progress in this issue at GitHub:
