Today we’ve released Project Glimpse: Node Edition version 0.22.11, our largest release since our initial launch in May. This release addresses and incorporates the great feedback we’ve received on our Home repo and from various phone calls we’ve had with users.
If you’d like to provide your own feedback, feel free to open an issue our reach out to schedule a chat with the team.
Support for MongoDB & Redis
Our new Data access tab automatically displays any I/O operations made to MongoDB and/or Redis. Each operation can be selected to see further details.
Updates to HUD
The Heads Up Display (HUD) now includes quick information about the types of log statements written during the processing of the request, the number of data access and web service calls made, and provides the ability to directly select an AJAX call in the Glimpse client.
In addition, a details mode is now available that can be toggled for more information.
Open in VS Code
References to source code locations are now hyperlinked so that they open in VS Code, taking you directly to the file and line in question.
