Firebug aids Mashup Development
Phil Rees has written an introduction to Firebug using the Google Mashup Editor (still in limited beta) and his DanceMaps mashup. He walks through everything from CSS to Yahoo! Pipes and how Firebug helps web development.
- Inspect custom stylesheets included by Google Mashup Editor
- Modify in-memory stylesheets to see the changes reflected immediately
- Monitor Ajax calls, showing response times, posted content, and results
Tutorials, screencasts and documentation for Firebug are available at GetFirebug.com and elsewhere. Michael Sync is current writing a series of blog posts with detailed descriptions of the functionality. He started in early September and has continued with numerous posts since then.
