Debugging a Gloop template
Debugging is similar to running a Gloop template, except it allows you to stop/resume the rendering of a web page at certain points. This makes it possible to analyze a template step by step, so you could identify the cause of a bug more quickly. During debugging, you can check variable values and rendered web content per breakpoint.
Debugging a Gloop template with the Gloop services debugger
Gloop templates use the same debugger Gloop services use. So to debug your Gloop template, you need to use the [Gloop services debugger]]gloop-service-debugging.
There are many ways you can debug a Gloop template:
- using the context menu from the Navigator;
- using the context menu from the step editor;
- using toolbar in the step editor; and
- using the shortcut key in Martini Desktop; in Martini Online.
Previewing the rendered web page while debugging
Just like when you run a Gloop template, you can preview the rendered web page in a browser. But since you can pause the execution of the template manually or using breakpoints, you can see your template being generated step by step, and tag by tag.
