Typesafe Console - Now Free for Developers
- July 18, 2013
The Typesafe Console version 1.2.0 is now generally available and is free for use by developers!
Console, a product designed specifically to offer unrivaled visibility into the inner workings of applications built on the Typesafe Platform, provides an unprecedented level of near real-time visibility into application execution and operation. Initially, Console was envisioned as a tool to be used exclusively by devops for production monitoring, however the overwhelming response from users has been that it actually has more applicability and value during application development; leaving the production monitoring aspects to the vendors already embedded in a company’s infrastructure.
Going forward, the Console Team will build on the Console’s existing devops-oriented functionality by providing more developer-oriented functionality. Our aim is for the Console to give developers full insight into how their applications look, and how and why they behave in certain ways.
The Console's functionality is constantly evolving and subsequently the development team will be rolling out new functionality frequently over the coming months. To do so, we want you, the users, to please provide us with feedback on the existing features and requests for what you think is missing to create a truly excellent developer tool. We encourage you to use the “Send Feedback” button, in the upper right corner in the Console, should you have any thoughts about the Console.
The next major release of the Console is planned for the end of August 2013. In this version, the Console will provide Play monitoring as well as improved developer views into the Akka applications. This version also has a completely new UI, which will provide a better platform to visualize how reactive, asynchronous and distributed applications work.
If you have any questions about the Console, a good place to start is its Google Group.
