Debug an element by adding an ID of "test"

TIL thanks to a tweet from Devon Govett...

If you add an ID of "test" to an element:

<div id="test"></div>

You can access it using the global variable test from JS from the console. Could be handy for debugging.


Also, incase you dind't know, any highlighted selected in the "Elements" tab of developer tools can be accessed directly in the console with $0.

🐛 Happy debugging!
