Moovweb Toolkit: A full-featured debugger for the Moovweb platform
This past month we’ve been cooking up some mighty tasty goodies here at Moovweb Intergalactic Headquarters. Our biggest, baddest, most exciting announcement is the Moovweb Toolkit. Toolkit is a Chrome extension that gives you full-featured logging and debugging tools for the Moovweb platform right in your browser. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Let’s take a quick look-see.
Toolkit adds two new panels to your Chrome Inspector window, Moov Debug and Moov Log. With Moov Debug, you can step debug or set breakpoints in your Tritium code, examine variables, and inspect the HTML document at any point in the transformation process. DOUBLE RAINBOW!
MoovLog cleans up the logging messages you’re used to on the console and adds syntax highlighting and filtering capabilities. It also has a built-in diff feature that shows how the Moovweb platform modified your HTTP request and response headers.
We’re super excited about Moovweb Toolkit and we’re just getting started in our quest to improve your productivity on the Moovweb platform. To get started with Toolkit download version 4.2 of the Moovweb SDK and then install the Moovweb Toolkit extension from the Chrome Web App Store.
Moovweb 4.2 Release
While Moovweb Toolkit is the flagship feature of the Moovweb 4.2 release, there are a host of other features that will make you more productive. In particular,
- Windows 8 Support: The Moovweb SDK is now compatible with Microsoft’s latest version of Windows.
- Basic Auth: Mum’s the word! Keep your top-secret redesigns under wraps by adding Basic Auth to projects hosted on the moovapp domain. In the past, teams had to resort to cookie hacks to protect in-progress work. But not anymore! Basic Auth is perfect for in-progress work and staging environments that need to be shared with your QA team (or your boss) but aren’t ready for public consumption.
- Console URL Format: We’ve simplified the URL structure for your project pages on console.moovweb.com so that paths are simply of the form “/accountname/projectname”. Old URLs will be redirected so your bookmarks will continue to work.
Harlem Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture
What started a joke has turned into a phenomenon. Team Moovweb literally made the web “moov” with our Harlem Shake bookmarklet and the response has been off the hook. Not only was it covered on TechCrunch, Huffington Post, and Mashable but developers started adding the effect as an Easter egg to their own websites, including YouTube. You’re welcome Internets!
That’s it for now. As always you can tweet or follow us on our developer Twitter account @MoovwebDev, your source for cool stuff in the mobile and web developer community and all things Moovweb.
Have a great weekend!
