Dev Tools Idea : Quick form tester

Thought I might use this blog as a spot to keep a track of some ideas as well. I’ve just had one that I might explore further later…

Use case: You want to test a form is submitting the values you think by emailing or logging all the $_POST vars or something but don’t want to setup the debugging on both client & server side.

Solution: A CORS enabled web service that takes an email address along with your POST’ed data and simply sends a nicely formatted key => value email back to the specified email address. A dev tools plugin or bookmarklet that fills the form out for you with one click would also be required.

Useful or useless?
