Microsoft released Vorlon.js as an OpenSource, which aims to help developers remotely test and debug JavaScript code

I remember days before the birth of Vorlon.js, its very hectic to DEBUG and test JavaScript code. Earlier I was using few tools/utilities to do so.

Thanks Microsoft for the released of Vorlon.js as an OpenSource, which aims to help developers remotely test and debug JavaScript code. The great thing of this OpenSource it is on GitHub. So, anyone can make changes and create a Pull request over there.

So, main feature with this is this is a remote debugging tool for JavaScript.


Here is the announcement of the tool in a MSDN blog post , where creator of this awesome tool David Catuhe described Vorlon.js as
why and about the tool.

Interesting it named after an ancient alien race in the TV show Babylon 5.

Vorlon.js is platform agnostic and powered by Node.js and Socket.IO
