    Project mention: Ask HN: How do you deal with logging while developing a webapp? | | 2022-05-17

    I have a decently complex webapp I'm working on and have found logging to be a pain point. I'm currently using debug [1] and viewing the logs in the chrome dev tools console. The issue I've had is that the console gets too noisy and crowded with all logging turned on but if I'm more selective with logging, then I often regret not having logs when I run into a bug. It'd be ideal to have fairly verbose logging always on but be able to have good control over how the logs are filtered. The console log filtering functionality in chrome and Firefox seems pretty limited and I can't do basic filters like "component1Logs | component2Logs".

    I imagine there's some library I could use which runs a local server, logs to some local file, and allows me to filter the logs with whatever shell tools are best. I haven't been able to find such a tool though and also would miss having the object exploration abilities that are in the browser console.

  • stf

    Control and manage Android devices from your browser. (by DeviceFarmer)

    Project mention: Android 13 virtualization lets Pixel 6 run Windows 11, Linux distributions | | 2022-02-14

    The heat isn't too hard to deal with, there are solutions (including the weird ones like water cooling cases ). Simply adding airflow tends to get you pretty far by itself, even. Device test labs are a common-enough thing and handle running phones like servers at scale without too much difficulty.

    But there's more nasty lurking problems in this area, like that phones aren't designed to be continuously powered. They will naively try to keep the battery at or near 100% charge, which will destroy it relatively quickly, and not uncommonly in the "it's bulging and increasingly likely to burst into flames" variety. 2 years is considered a "decent run" for things like device test labs as a result (see eg the FAQ on )

    Project mention: What are Your Thoughts on "Debugging"? | | 2022-04-18

    I guess, I have only started asking these types of questions because I have been working on a new type of debugger (called "Dbux") over the past few years. At the same time, I'm thinking: what is going on in other people's heads?
