What console are they talking about?


#1

Hello!

https://www.codecademy.com/courses/intermediate-javascript-requests/lessons/requests-i/exercises/ajax-get-requests-iii?course_redirect=introduction-to-javascript

I’ve been doing this course for a bit now, and just realised that I had no clue of what console they were talking about.
(feels dumb, knowing that I haven’t seen anything happen, but I guess it’s my problem for not knowing what they mean).

IS there anyone who could elaborate more on what “console” they’re talking about?

the black column on the right is a console, given console.log logs to the console. Normally, consoles is a tool build into a browser:

to display information (error messages and warnings), and can be used for debugging

codecademy included a console in the JS lessons to make things easier.

I knew that, it was just that in those exercises that I was doing, didn’t have a console where I could look so I thought I was in a glitched course or so. Thanks for explaining about the way to bring up console in a browser! :smile:

For specific exercises and problems i would need to look at that specific exercise, but i haven’t gotten to it to do all the new content

Okay, cool!
