Description Andrey Kosyakov 2010-11-01 08:45:34 PDT
A common task for extensions would be to display a tree of properties of an object on the inspected page. While it would be possible for extension to re-implement object display and marshaling logic we have in InjectedScript, RemoteObject and PropertiesSection, we would like to provide a simple way for extension to add a sidebar pane similar to our property / expression watch sidebar panes.

expression -> jsonObject

> +WebInspector.LocalJSONObject = function(value)

I'd suggest that you move LocalJSONObject into RemoteObject.js and update the factory method there.

- Moved LocalJSONObject to RemoteObject.js, added RemoteObject.fromLocalObject()
- setObject(expression,...) => setObject(jsonObject,...)
