Introducing Value Explorer for Quokka

  07 Nov 2018   2 min read

Today we are very excited to announce Value Explorer, a new feature we’ve been working on for Quokka.js for the last few months.

Value Explorer integrates with Quokka’s existing variable and expression output mechanisms (console.log, live comments, identifier expressions, and the Show Value command) to display values in an easy-to-navigate, real-time tree view. The tree can be expanded to any depth and can copy paths/values to the clipboard.

This feature is great for exploring the results of larger objects and makes debugging and creating prototypes with Quokka even easier and faster than before. Value Explorer nicely complements the existing Quokka output window and inline displays which are ideal for simpler values (primitive types and simple objects).

Value Explorer allows you to inspect everything that is logged in Quokka with `console.log`,
live comments, identifier expressions, and `Show Value` command.

The feature is available for both the Community edition and the Pro edition, but only 2 levels of the tree can be expanded in the Community edition.

Today, the feature is only available in Quokka for VS Code. We are pleased to announce that over the next few months the feature will also be available in:

As usual, we would love to hear your feedback on the feature on Twitter, in our comments, or our GitHub repo.
