Client side and server side tool to analyse pages

Web Development Helper works both server side and client side to give further insight in the workings of a .Net web app.

The Web Development Helper is not a replacement for Firebug or other client side toolbars. Its unique selling point is its capacity to decode ViewState. To enable it on a website, add to web.config:

<syntaxhighlight lang="xml" line>

        <add name="DevInfo"
          type="nStuff.WebDevHelper.Server.DevInfoModule, nStuff.WebDevHelper.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fc0e3af5abcb6c4" />


Add a reference to the library nStuff.WebDevHelper.Server.dll in the web app.

For security reasons, in the Release version of the web.config, the Web Development Helper configuration must be removed.
