Replace the normal jQuery getScript function with one that supports debugging and which references the script files as external resources rather than inline. Helps with debugging in IE.
// Helps with IE debugging.
getScript: function(url, callback) {
var head = document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0];
var script = document.createElement("script");
var done = false; // Handle Script loading
script.src = url;
script.onload = script.onreadystatechange = function() { // Attach handlers for all browsers
if ( !done && (!this.readyState || this.readyState === "loaded" || this.readyState === "complete") ) {
done = true;
if (callback) { callback(); }
script.onload = script.onreadystatechange = null; // Handle memory leak in IE
return undefined; // We handle everything using the script element injection
