Include jQuery in the JavaScript Console

Tags: ,



Is there an easy way to include jQuery in the Chrome JavaScript console for sites that do not use it? For example, on a website I would like to get the number of rows in a table. I know this is really easy with jQuery.

$('element').length;

The site does not use jQuery. Can I add it in from the command line?

Answer

Run this in your browser’s JavaScript console, then jQuery should be available…

var jq = document.createElement('script');
jq.src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js";
document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(jq);
// ... give time for script to load, then type (or see below for non wait option)
jQuery.noConflict();

NOTE: if the site has scripts that conflict with jQuery (other libs, etc.) you could still run into problems.

Update:

Making the best better, creating a Bookmark makes it really convenient, let’s do it, and a little feedback is great too:

  1. Right click the Bookmarks Bar, and click Add Page
  2. Name it as you like, e.g. Inject jQuery, and use the following line for URL:

javascript:(function(e,s){e.src=s;e.onload=function(){jQuery.noConflict();console.log(‘jQuery injected’)};document.head.appendChild(e);})(document.createElement(‘script’),’//code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js’)

Below is the formatted code:

javascript: (function(e, s) {
    e.src = s;
    e.onload = function() {
        jQuery.noConflict();
        console.log('jQuery injected');
    };
    document.head.appendChild(e);
})(document.createElement('script'), '//code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js')

Here the official jQuery CDN URL is used, feel free to use your own CDN/version.
