Firebug is an extension for Firefox, but what happens when you need to test your pages in Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari?
Firebug Lite creates the variables "firebug" and "pi" and doesn't affect or interfere with HTML elements that aren't created by itself
- install and enable FirebugLitePlugin
- hit F12 - this should bring up the firebuglite console.
- change the path to the
firebug-lite.css file to a local TWiki path
- add a setting to add
debug="true" to the html tag, to always bring up the console.
You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server where TWiki is running.
Like many other TWiki extensions, this module is shipped with a fully
automatic installer script written using the BuildContrib.
- If you have TWiki 4.2 or later, you can install from the
configure interface (Go to Plugins->Find More Extensions)
- If you have any problems, then you can still install manually from the command-line:
- Download one of the
- Unpack the archive in the root directory of your TWiki installation.
- Run the installer script (
perl <module>_installer )
configure and enable the module, if it is a plugin.
- Repeat for any missing dependencies.
- If you are still having problems, then instead of running the installer script:
- Make sure that the file permissions allow the webserver user to access all files.
- Check in any installed files that have existing
,v files in your existing install (take care not to lock the files when you check in)
- Manually edit LocalSite.cfg to set any configuration variables.
