Tutorial – Accessing the Developer Console
Most web browsers have a ‘developer console’ that can be opened to see what is happening when web pages load and run. This can be used to provide additional information when report issues with the application.
The developer console has a number of features, the two that are most useful for report issues are the ‘Console’ and ‘Network’.
Console reports what happens when commands are run by the bramble, any errors the occur will appear here in red. Network reports what requests have been sent to bramble’s servers and how long these loads take to happen. Again, any errors appear in red.
Reporting Issues Appearing in the Developer Console
Information only starts appearing in the console once it has been open. If you find an issue in bramble, open the developer console, reload your browser and repeat the steps that caused the error to appear in the first place. Should any error messages appear in the console or network tabs, take a screenshot and include it in an email along with a description of the steps you took to create the error. Emailing the bramble version number can also be helpful, this is shown in the bottom right of the bramble window.
