Replacement for util.inspect and the console object.

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependency Status

var uninspected = require('uninspected');

var str = uninspected.inspect({ foo: 'bar' }); // "{ foo: 'bar' }"

uninspected.log('foo', { bar: /hey/ }); // { bar: /hey/ }

// Or use this shorthand:
uninspected('foo', { bar: /hey/ }); // { bar: /hey/ }

The library also includes diffing support (powered by Unexpected's diffing engine):

uninspected.diff({ foo: 'bar' }, { foo: 'baz' });
  foo: 'bar'; // should be 'baz'
  // -bar
  // +baz

You can also use it instead of the console object:

var console = require('uninspected');



In the Chrome console this will produce colored output using this API.

The uninspected npm package includes a bookmarklet for doing the above, ie. replacing the console object with uninspected, see bookmarklet.html at the root of the package. Unfortunately github doesn't permit putting it directly into this README.
