Visual Studio Code - Network for Microsoft Edge (Chromium)
Show Edge browser Network tool inside Visual Studio Code editor and use it to know details about network requests.
A Visual Studio Code extension that allows to use the Edge browser Network tool from within the editor. The Network tool will connect to an instance of Microsoft Edge giving the ability to see network requests details.
Note: This extension only supports Microsoft Edge (Chromium)
Using the Extension
For use inside Visual Studio Code:
- Install any channel (Canary/Dev/etc.) of Microsoft Edge (Chromium).
- Install the extension.
- Open the folder containing the project to work on.
The extension operates in two modes - it can launch an instance of Microsoft Edge navigated to your app, or it can attach to a running instance of Microsoft Edge. Both modes requires you to be serving your web application from local web server, which is started from either a Visual Studio Code task or from your command-line. Using the
url parameter you simply tell Visual Studio Code which URL to either open or launch in the browser.
Other optional launch config fields
browserPath: The full path to the browser executable that will be launched. If not specified the most stable channel of Microsoft Edge (Chromium) will be launched from the default install location instead.
hostname: By default the extension searches for debuggable instances using
localhost. If you are hosting your web app on a remote machine you can specify the hostname using this setting.
port: By default the extension will set the remote-debugging-port to
9222. Use this option to specify a different port on which to connect.
