Any chance we might see Dragonfly-like dev tools (think Opera 12) in the future?
Hey everyone, I'm a web developer and I'm still using Opera 12 for some of my work, because of it's dev tool "Dragonfly". I also really like Vivaldi so far, because of it's customizability, the sidebar, great tab handling and so on... Features from Opera 12 live on But is there any chance we might see something like "Dragonfly revived" for Vivaldi? Reasons / features that I'm looking for: [ul] [li]- Real-time editing of markup and styles (simply double click on a tag in the DOM explorer to edit it as HTML, and changes are applied in real-time)[/li] [li]- Toggles for highlighting elements on mouseover and inspect elements on click (in other browsers, each single time I want to select/highlight an element in the page, I have to click an extra button before)[/li] [li]- Option to hide comments in the DOM explorer[/li] [/ul] Any thoughts on that? Or any ideas how to get those features in a "modern" browser (i.e. newer than Opera 12)?
Welcome among us!
Meh I don't think so, the dev tools are not about Vivaldi but about blink.
The dev team is small and can't mantain a blink fork, so I think they'll stick with blink dev tools, which are not that bad imo
The blink dev tools are certainly not bad (and in some respects, even way superior to Dragonfly), I also use them quite often… I just hope they'll get real-time editing in the future... It seems really strange to me that the years-old Opera is the only browser that supports that natively.
Guess I'll just continue using Opera 12 for some parts in my workflow.
In my point of view the Blink DevTools is a equal powerful tool for Web Developers. I'm a Web Developer (among other things :D) and in my company all people use Google Chrome for that.
The only reason I have not switched completely to Vivaldi is because the DevTools… the window manager have a lot of Bugs and I can't split the two screen in the same Window... I hope that Bug be fixed very soon to remove the devourer of resources (Google Chrome) and start fully using this amazing browser
Btw... I know... I know... I would love that Vivaldi was an open source project
the window manager have a lot of Bugs and I can't split the two screen in the same Window
View source, select current tab and source tab, tile tabs.
I'm talking about the DevTools (Inspect Element, option)… I'm an OS X user and when I select that option a new Windows is open and I can't close them... On the image below you can see who the window controls are not shown and the close option on the menu does do nothing.
All I want is that it would be docked to the bottom/
I wouldn't use Vivaldi yet for this stuff, anyway I think they'll care about the dev tools later since not everyone is a developer
Anyway there's an oblivious workaround:
1 - un-maximize Vivaldi
2 - put the window with the tools just below the browser
They're going to do what you ask for sure!
