After the tutorial introduced the major features of Gencaster, a last step is still missing which is how to figure what goes wrong in case something does not work as expected.
Listening to a stream without attaching to a graph#
In order to verify that streaming works or attach oneself to a running stream without triggering the execution of the story graph, it is possible to use the debug website of the frontend, which is available for example under dev.gencaster/debug.
Select the desired streaming point and use the player to tune into the stream.
Debugging the graph execution#
To verify the graph execution, the editor provides a list of current and past streams via editor.dev.gencaster.org/stream. By clicking on a stream, the logs for the stream will be displayed and updating in real time.
There also exists a backend admin menu under backend.dev.gencaster.org/admin which can be used to verify the data stored within the database.
