AEConsole

Customizable Console UI overlay with debug log on top of your iOS App

AEConsole is built on top of AELog, so you should probably see that first.

I wanted to see what's happening 'under the hood' while testing some app AFK (ex. outside). Then I made it possible. Hope you'll like it too, happy coding!

Features

  • All the things from AELog plus:
  • Console UI overlay on top of your App
  • Debug log on device in real time
  • Automatic row height for all log lines
  • Forward touches to your App
  • Shake to toggle Console UI
  • Filter log to find exactly what you need
  • Export log to file if you need it for later
  • Share log file easily via system sharing sheet
  • Customize look as you like it

Usage

Calling Console.shared.configure(in: window) will add Console.View as a subview to your App's window and make it hidden by default. Whenever you need Console UI, you just make a shake gesture and it's there! When you no longer need it, shake again and it's gone.

The rest is up to AELog's logging functionality. Whatever is logged with it, will show up in Console.View.

// MARK: - Console configuration

func application(_ application: UIApplication,
                 didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool
{
    /// - Note: Access Console settings
    let settings = Console.shared.settings

    /// - Note: Customize Console settings like this, these are defaults:
    settings.isShakeGestureEnabled = true
    settings.backColor = UIColor.black
    settings.textColor = UIColor.white
    settings.fontSize = 12.0
    settings.rowSpacing = 4.0
    settings.opacity = 0.7

    /// - Note: Configure Console in app window (it's recommended to skip this for public release)
    Console.shared.configure(in: window)

    /// - Note: Log something with AELog
    aelog()

    return true
}
// MARK: - Additional Console API

/// - Note: Check if Console is hidden
Console.shared.isHidden

/// - Note: Toggle Console visibility
Console.shared.toggle()

/// - Note: Add any log line manually
Console.shared.addLogLine(line: "Hello!")

/// - Note: Export log file manually
Console.shared.exportLogFile { (fileURL) in
    do {
        let url = try fileURL()
        /// - Note: do something with a log file at given file URL...
    } catch {
        print(error)
    }
}
