Here's a simple way that worked for me:

  • cd to the directory containing your index.html file in the terminal
  • Start a http server using python by invoking (I used python 2.7):

    python -m SimpleHTTPServer

  • View the page in safari by entering the address of the HTTPServer in a browser, for me the URL was:
  • Open developer tools:

    In chrome this is alt command i. View the console tab, may need to refresh the page.

    In Safari: Safari --> Preferences --> Advanced --> check "Show Develop Menu". Develop menu --> Show error console (or alt command c). Refresh the page. Hitting CTRL 5 opens the issues tab.

Put this in the beginning of your index.html
