Description

View Source is an app plus an iOS 8 Safari extension that makes it easy to do one key web developer task: view the HTML, JavaScript and CSS source of any web page, with beautiful and customisable syntax highlighting.

As an app, you can enter a URL and immediately see the source code behind it. As an extension, it's even easier: just browse the web in Safari as you normally would, and if you want to view the source for your current page just tap the Action icon and choose View Source. You can then either copy the text to your pasteboard for use in other apps, or send it as an email.

To enable the Safari extension on iOS 8, launch Safari, tap the action button on the toolbar, scroll right to the end, then tap More. Make sure View Source is enabled, then position it wherever you want it in the list of Safari actions, and tap Done.

This app is optimised for all iOS 8-compatible devices, including the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

What’s New

Version 2.0

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

This is a huge upgrade, adding many new features for free. Again, thank you to everyone who has emailed or tweeted with suggestions – please keep them coming!

- NEW: The asset browser lets you see images, stylesheets, and copy them to your photo library or pasteboard.

- NEW: The DOM browser lets you navigate through a web page's hierarchy using a collapsible tree.

- NEW: See key information such as page size, character set and cookies.

- NEW: When you're running within the extension, you can now write custom JavaScript to be executed when you return to Safari.

- NEW: When you're using the app you can now navigate straight to previously used pages using the History screen.

- NEW: Use the URL scheme viewsource:// to launch the app from another app on your device.

- NEW: If you launch the app with a URL on your pasteboard, you'll now be prompted whether you want to view that URL's source code.

- IMPROVED: When conducting a search, you'll now see a special search toolbar that lets you navigate between results.

Why didn't I find this sooner!?

Thought I'd have a look for something to view the source on my iPhone and came across this little gem which seemed to have the best of the rest; integration with Safari, browsing assets, clicking links, executing JavaScript, viewing cookies...I could go on!

If you're a web developer in any way shape or form, this is going to be 79p well spent!!
