    If there is an AngularJs app running in the page, it is often hard to debug or see the current model (stored in the $scope variables). Now suppose that we have some variable name attached to the scope in the div app. Let take the example below

    var sidebar = document.getElementsById('sidebar');
    var scope = angular.element(sidebar).scope();
    Scope {$id: "00J", $$childTail: null, $$childHead: null, $$prevSibling: null, }
    

    One thing you need to remember about is if you want to fire an action on $scope from outside of AngularJS world, you need to wrap your stuff in $scope.$apply to let AngularJS know about your changes. So just need to write like below, Execute an event like using $rootScope from console would look like below: //on your web browser console

    var sidebar = document.getElementsById('sidebar');
    var scope = angular.element(sidebar).scope();
    var rootScope = scope.$root;
    scope.$apply(function() {
      rootScope.$broadcast('myEvent', {data: myData});
    });
