How to Open Source Code on Chrome

The open source software community freely shares code that makes it easy to build enjoyable experiences on the web. We want to promote this kind of collaboration. We think the Chrome browser is an important platform to help build these experiences, so we undertook a project to improve how developers can create them.

Chrome Web Apps use a new packaging format called Chrome Packaged Apps. Capps are different than Packaged Web Apps in that they run with more privileges and can be used to run applications completely outside of the Chrome browser. Web apps are limited in this use case, because they can only communicate with JavaScript inside the web browser. Capps on the other hand, can communicate directly with the operating system and with concepts like files/directories and sockets that do not apply to a browser environment.

    • Don’t right-click a link or a photo when doing this or else the wrong menu will appear.

Getting to Know the Elements Panel in Chrome

Inspect Element is a feature of Chrome Developer Tools that allows you to inspect and modify a page’s frontend web elements. With this tool, it’s possible to change the appearance and content of a web page by editing its CSS and HTML files.

There are several ways to open the Developer Tools on Google Chrome. The first method is through the Menu. Click on the three vertical dots at the upper right corner of the browser. Then, hover the cursor over More Tools and click on Developer Tools.

For faster access, right-click on a page element and select Inspect. Sometimes, the Inspect button may be greyed out. If this is the case, Windows and Linux users can press Ctrl+Shift+C, while macOS users can press Command+Shift+C to quickly access the Developer tools.

The Developer Tools panel comprises three main parts:

  • Elements/DOM panel ‒ contains the page’s Document Object Model (DOM) tree and gives you full access to the HTML source code. It’s usually located in the upper part of the Developer Tools.
  • CSS panel ‒ lets you modify the style rules of a web page by changing, adding, or removing CSS properties. This panel is located in the middle part, right under Styles.
  • Console ‒ shows what’s new in developer tools. It’s also used to run JavaScript. It appears in the bottom section of the Developer Tools.

Chrome Developer Tools also include other features, such as SourceNetworkApplicationSecurity, and more. This article will show you how to change page attributes using the Elements and CSS panels.

In Firefox, pressing F12 or Ctrl+Shift+I also brings up the interactive developer tool. This tool provides interaction with the source code and CSS settings, allowing users to see how changes in the code affect the web page in real time.

View a section of the page’s source code

  1. Highlight the portion of a web page for which you’d like to view the source code.
  2. Right-click that highlighted section and select View Selection Source.

Tip

You can use the Firebug add-on to view and edit the source code of a page, and view the changes live through the browser.

What Can You Do With Chrome Developer Tools?

The Inspect Element feature offers many benefits to web developers. Here are some things you can do with Elements and CSS panels:

  • CSS live-editing ‒ allows you to see changes in real time as you make edits in the CSS panel.
  • Layout testing ‒ lets you test different layouts of a website before making permanent changes to the code.
  • Debug diagnostics ‒ helps check whether your site contains broken code.
  • Temporary editing ‒ allows tweaking web page elements for viewing on your browser.
