For those of you who either develop web applications using the SproutCore framework or test SproutCore applications using the Lebowski framework, take note that a new SproutCore path picker tool has been released by Josh Holt. The tool is an add-on for the Firefox browser, and it will generate a full property path for any view that you click on, with or without a layer ID. It’s really awesome!

For developers, the SproutCore PathPicker tool will help save you headaches when you want to debug your app and try to track down the right path to the view, say when you use the Firebug console. For testers using the Lebowski framework, this will save you from having to dig through all the code to get the correct property path that you need to supply to the framework in order to get back a corresponding proxy object.

Many thanks to Josh for creating this tool!
