Subject Re: logger / console.log redux
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2013 16:42:50 GMT
Just to be clear: there are costs involved with using the console plugin.
 Aside from performance, which is likely negligible, it misreports line
numbers since the call to the actual native console.log comes from within
the plugin's wrapper.  If you are using safari remote inspector to debug
anyway, where the console plugin doesn't buy you anything, this is just a
terrible price to pay.

If the vast majority of ios developers are doing dev for ios 5 or debugging
exclusively using console.log and never need remote inspector, then maybe I
would see the importance of this here.

Perhaps if the plugin was re-written to not clobber by default, or detect
when inspector is attached somehow and disable itself automatically, I
would be more impressed with seeing this added by default always.  As it
stands, please don't do this in a way that isn't trivial to disable.
