We’re shipping Eager Evaluation today! When you open DevTools, go to the Console, and start typing in the Terminal, you will now see results appear immediately below.
Eager Evaluation and Autocomplete make the Terminal much more interactive. When you pause and start typing, autocomplete will complete the expression and eager evaluation will show the result below. It’s really fast and really really fun.
Features like these are why DevTools are such great thinking tools. Sure you can read the code, but you’ll never have a faster feedback loop than when you’re playing in the Console.
If you’d like to see how Eager Evaluation works, checkout makeSideEffectFreeDebugger. It’s the kind of API you can only implement in the browser and there’s something incredibly elegant about these four lines.
Last week we received lots of great feedback on Autocomplete. Thanks for the feedback and keep it coming!
