This post is largely inspired by this excellent talk called "Sasqwatch is Real" given by Scott Moss, a Hack Reactor alum, at the Angular 2015 conference. He goes into depth about the need to have a firm handle on your understanding of angular's watchers and the digest cycle.

In his talk, Moss points to a module created by Kent C. Dodds called ng-stats which he uses to see how many watchers there are on any given Angular page and what the average time for a digest cycle is.

I thought I'd create a little video explaining how to create a bookmarklet to use the module with a click of a bookmark button in your browser.
