The JavaScript Console

Published on: July 8, 2016

Welcome to the third Easy JavaScript Tutorial, Beginner JavaScript Tutorial, part of Easy Programming! Today, we're going to cover the JavaScript console. I gave a brief intro to the console in my tutorial covering your browser's developer tools, and today I'm going to go a little more into the JavaScript console and show you exactly what you can do with this wonderful tool. It's more than just console.log(). 

Every browser should have a JavaScript console. My favorite is the one available with Chrome. It's more than a source of output, you can use the console to input commands and execute as a command line interface. The JS Console lets you do many things including math and even testing your JavaScript code before you actually implement it. 

We'll be using the JavaScript console a lot more over the course of this series where you will slowly become an expert.
