A few of us have been kicking around the idea of sharing debugging setup+tips+tricks. But then we realized this might be of interest to the community. If so, we could turn it into a live stream and have several people walk through their own setup and examples (note: hacks are fully welcome and probably exactly what everyone needs to see ).
So, reply here if:
- a live stream covering “Debugging: RedwoodJS style” would be helpful to you
- and/or if you’d be interested in presenting for 5-10 minutes or so
I’ve already nominated @peterp and @olance, so we’ll have at least 20 minutes of presentation plus time for Q&A!
And @rob can’t wait to figure out how to set up the first-ever RedwoodJS Live event
I’m so excited. Anyone else?
If you’re interested, feel free to share your IDE/Code editor and browser of choice when developing
I’m a big fan of the Jetbrains IDEs and usually use Chrome, so I can demo debugging a Redwood app with Webstorm (API debugging) + Chrome Developer Tools (front-end debugging)!
I would love to see a live stream of people using Redwood!
I’m a fond user of
console.log everything so I’m probably a good target market for this event.
Ahah yes! When I discussed this with David I was ranting about the
die “debug pattern” of PHP, which would be the equivalent of
console.log everything ^^
There are definitely ways & tools to gain more control and better understanding of how things flow in your app
Ah yes. I don’t remember much of my PHP days but I remember
I use VSCode and would be interested in seeing this.
Definitely! It’s still on the radar although a few other things got in the way.
In the meantime, @Robert has shipped some amazing improvements to Jest test support. And there’s still VS Code IDE extenstion in the works
More to come! Just not sure when.
I’m interested, I’m on Phpstorm + Chrome as well.
I’m definitely interested in tuning in, if the time zone allows it (GMT+2).
Primarily using VS Code and Brave.
Very interested. VSCode, Firefox user.
Hi all! Thanks for getting the momentum going on this (again). There were a few things we were waiting on, one of which was how to host an interactive Video conf that could also be recorded. Now we have a solution we’d like to test.
- Put a placeholder on your calendar for Friday, July 17th at 10:30-11:30AM Pacific for our first attempt at a public Drop-in Virtual Meetup. The topic is the Redwood API. The format will be a loose agenda of topics with the goal of question-driven conversation. (Look for full announcements and details early next week.)
- If that first-round experiment goes GoodEnough™, we’ll attempt to do another one probably two weeks later. It would be great to run with this topic and have some people demo/present. TBD
100% attending this, good debugging is absolutely critical for a happy development path in my opinion. VS Code and Chrome user.
I am still in my PHP days (on my way out with RW hopefully!) and I have to say the Laravel error/debugger is pretty great, https://flareapp.io/ignition.
