# Developer Tools

Whisk provides full access to the Safari Web Inspector. You can get JavaScript console log output, inspect elements, view network requests, and do much more. Read Apple's Safari Web Inspector Documentation (opens new window) for more information.

To show the Developer Tools, click the corresponding button in the toolbar or choose View > Show Developer Tools.

If the Web Preview is narrow, the Developer Tools will open in a separate window. Otherwise it will be embedded in the Web Preview.


When the Developer Tools is open, Whisk will inject a <script> tag into the HTML sent to the web preview requesting a file called whisk-console-delay.js. This file is blank; its only purpose is to help workaround a bug in the console where it can incorrectly appear blank if a reload happens quickly.
