> Visualized event bindings. Would be awesome to have a visual indicator of event bindings right on the page. Color-coded bounding boxes drawn around elements with a label denoting the event type.

A bit of shameless self promotion - I wrote a bookmarklet to do that asking talking to a couple of Mozilla folks a few years back: http://sprymedia.co.uk/article/Visual+Event+2 . Source is available on GitHub: https://github.com/DataTables/VisualEvent .

The biggest problem I faced with this is that there is no DOM method to get a list of the events that have been bound to a node. Possibly a Firefox plug-in would have the ability to access that information, but it can't be done through the DOM at the moment, so I had to resort to parsing the information available from the libraries, each needing its own integration file...




Thanks for the awesome tool! I've found it handy on more than one occasion to trace jQuery/vanilla JS listeners. Any plans for Dojo support?


Hadn't been planning it, but it sounds like a very sensible idea! Added an issue in GitHub which you can follow if you like: https://github.com/DataTables/VisualEvent/issues/26


Thanks so much for the plugin -- I use it frequently. It's the one bookmarklet I actually use enough to keep on my bookmarks bar.
