console.log from script.js file in node.js repl?
EthanBlesch (8)

I have a project that I'm trying to debug, but the console is reserved for the node.js file, so I can't log easily, is there a way to fix this?

It looks like you are running the script within your HTML - which means it is running in your browser.
Use console.log() as normal in the script.
Open the website and press Ctrl+Shift+I (may differ in different browsers) and click on the console tab.
That should show you the console output from the script.

@EthanBlesch If you can't see the browser's developer tools then unfortunately you can't really debug the JS running on the website. Try asking someone else to do it potentially.
