detect value change in input tag with vanilla javascript and MutationObserver


I want to detect when text/value change in input field. Even if I change the value with js, I want to detect that changes.

Here's what I've tried so far in demo in fiddle.

HTML:

<input type="text" id="exNumber"/>

JavaScript:

var observer = new MutationObserver(function(mutations) {
  mutations.forEach(function(mutation) {
    // console.log('Mutation type: ' + mutation.type);
    if ( mutation.type == 'childList' ) {
      if (mutation.addedNodes.length >= 1) {
        if (mutation.addedNodes[0].nodeName != '#text') {
           // console.log('Added ' + mutation.addedNodes[0].tagName + ' tag.');
        }
      }
      else if (mutation.removedNodes.length >= 1) {
         // console.log('Removed ' + mutation.removedNodes[0].tagName + ' tag.')
      }
    }
     if (mutation.type == 'attributes') {
      console.log('Modified ' + mutation.attributeName + ' attribute.')
    }
  });   
});

var observerConfig = {
        attributes: true,
        childList: false,
        characterData: false
};

// Listen to all changes to body and child nodes
var targetNode = document.getElementById("exNumber");
observer.observe(targetNode, observerConfig);
