The debug component enables component-to-DOM serialization.
By default, for performance reasons, A-Frame does not update the DOM with component data. If we open the browser’s DOM inspector, we will see that many entities will have only the component name visible:
The component data is stored internally. Updating the DOM takes CPU time for converting component data, which is stored internally, to strings. However, when we want to see the DOM update for debugging purposes, we can attach the
debug component to the scene. Components will check whether the
debug component is enabled before trying to serialize to the DOM. Then we will be able to view component data in the DOM:
Make sure that this component is not active in production.
