There's three ways to open the Chromium Developer Tools.

  1. Add --debug to the command line args:
npm start -- --debug
  1. Ctrl + Shift + I in Linux / Windows or Command + Option + I in OS X / macOS to toggle devtools for a window.
  2. Set debug to true in the config. The config file is stored in ~/.config/configstore/HexoEditor.json (for every system).


HexoEditor will auto detect your system language and use the localization.

You can set language manually in the Settings window.

Now the app supports English, Chinese, French, German, Spanish and incomplete Portuguese.

Help us if you can translate this app. Please follow the guide in app/moe-l10n.js.
