Wanted to share trick for peeking into AngularJS scope with F12 tools and DOM selector. After selecting any HTML DOM element you can “peek” into the “$scope” with variables available at that level. No special browser extension or plug-ins needed. If debugging AngularJS frequently check out Batarang for more advanced browser F12 tools. For a quick check be sure to memorize “angular.element($0).scope()” for typing into console. Realize that Angular (2+) has superseded AngularJS 1x. However, many AngularJS applications continue to need support. Tricks like this make that work easy.
