Description johnjbarton 2012-07-26 16:31:22 PDT
One of the wonderful aspects of WebInspector is its use of 100% Web technology. I have leverage this aspect to embed WebInspector in a Web app and in a Chrome browser extension. I was able to hook the load sequence of the code to adapt the WebInspector to alternative backend connections (chrome.debugger API and WebSockets without using the built-in instance).

The only small problem I hit was in loading extensions: the postMessage system uses 'top' in two places, but when embedded the WebInspector will not be 'top'.  By replacing these uses with 'window.parent' the WebInspector is iframeable.

Note I changed the patch to catch one more "top." over in Source/WebKit/chromium. I think this change would only help if embedders can figure out how to use unmodified devtools extensions, but I added it to be consistent with the other changes.
