Debugging

This page contains tips for debugging Vitessce while developing components or writing configurations.

Get the current config#

Vitessce always writes the current config to the browser console, both as a data URI and as JSON.

Check network requests#

The network tab in your browser's developer tools window can help to determine whether any files failed to load.

Validate & log the config on every change#

By default, Vitessce does not validate or log the view config on every coordination scope change (instead validation occurs only on initial load). However, by setting the query parameter debug=1 in the URL, you can enable this behavior. Note that this has a major performance impact.
