Access A Value Logged To The DevTools Console

Did your app just log an object to the dev tools console and you’d like to interact with that object? It’s not straightforward, but you can do it.

Assuming you already have dev tools opened to the console tab, right click on the value that has been logged to the console. Select the Store as Global Variable option. This will re-log the value assigning it to the temp1 variable.

You can now reference that object as temp1 accessing its values and calling functions.

You can even do this with multiple logged values, each subsequent one will be assigned incrementing variable names: temp2, temp3, etc.
