The Wing Console is a web application that offers a user-friendly interface designed to enhance the developer experience when viewing, exploring, and interacting with Wing applications running on the local cloud simulator.
With a primary focus on developer experience, the Console aims to provide instant feedback to developers during the cloud application development process.
Unlike traditional cloud development iterations that involve time-consuming deployments to the cloud, Wing and the Wing Console streamline this process, enabling cloud developers to swiftly receive immediate feedback on code changes directly on their local machines.
The Wing Console is installed as part of the Wing CLI installation.
View And Explore your Wing application
The Console offers two primary views to provide a comprehensive understanding of your Wing application: the Explorer view and the Map view.
The left side of the Console features the Explorer view, displaying the hierarchical structure of resources within your application.
Positioned at the center is the Application Map view, presenting an overview of the resources in your application along with their relations with each other.
Interact with your Wing application
The Console provides seamless interaction with your Wing application resources, right within the Console interface itself.
When you click on a resource in either the Explorer or Map view, the resource interaction panel on the right side of the Console will automatically update. This panel enables you to conveniently interact with the selected resource.
From there, you can perform various actions such as sending messages to queues, downloading files from buckets, making API requests to your API resource, and more.
The Console enables you to run the tests you wrote for your Wing application and view the results of these tests in real-time.
In addition to Interaction abilities, the Console includes a dedicated Logs view, designed for testing and debugging purposes. This view presents real-time logs of your application.
Any logs that you generate within your Wing Application will be automatically displayed within the Logs view, providing you with convenient monitoring of your application's behavior.
