Debugging Flex with ThunderBolt

Posted by Sravan | June 14, 2008 .

Logging your apps can greatly speed up the debugging process. ThunderBolt AS3 is a light easy-to-use logging tool for Flex 2 or 3 and Flash ActionScript 3, using Firebug in Firefox. It is open-source, and is released with a Mozilla Public License 1.1.

The tool provides an option to set various log levels: INFO, WARN, ERROR, or DEBUG (FATAL, ALL), and show or hide all logs from being output to Firebug. It also gives a tree view of complex object structures, info about the memory being consumed, and info about the version being used.

To learn more about usage and specific examples of ThunderBolt AS3, visit the flash-thunderbolt Google Code page. Download the latest version, and try it now. If you have any problems, you can post them on the ThunderBolt’s Issue Page. Not many have been posted there, perhaps, because of its ease to use.

If you are not using Firebug, you should. It integrates with Firefox and allows you to debug, edit, and monitor CSS, HTML and JavaScript. There are many web development tools being developed that work using Firebug. (The last I checked, their homepage wasn’t loading.)
