Microsoft today announced the new Edge Diagnostics Adapter, which opens up Microsoft Edge to tools outside the browser. Edge Diagnostics Adapter allows developers to debug sites in Edge with tools like Sublime Text or Visual Studio Code. Microsoft is also introducing integrated debugging experiences in Visual Studio Code and Sublime Text.

The Edge Diagnostics Adapter exposes a Chrome Debugging Protocol endpoint, which is injected into the running instance of Microsoft Edge. You can start the Adapter and connect your tools to Edge right away, no restart or command line flag required. This makes debugging in Edge with your existing editor or other tools a smooth experience, as tools can connect right they’re needed, without interfering with application state.
