By Sam Deering

Quick share of an easy way to do console.log’s while web developing. You can now just type log instead of console.log. Small change, big time saver.

// usage: log('inside coolFunc', this, arguments);
window.log = function f(){ log.history = log.history || []; log.history.push(arguments); if(this.console) { var args = arguments, newarr; args.callee = args.callee.caller; newarr = [].slice.call(args); if (typeof console.log === 'object') log.apply.call(console.log, console, newarr); else console.log.apply(console, newarr);}};
