Overview

Devkits, or Symphony development kits, are extensions that provide additional front-end interfaces for authenticated system authors. There are two core devkits—the debug devkit and the profile devkit—which expose helpful contextual information for a given front-end page, including its source XML, its page template, any associated utilities, the parameters available to it, execution and load times, and more.

Usage

Devkits can be accessed by appending special GET parameters to the URL of a front-end page. For example, you would visit http://yoursite.com/?debug or http://yoursite.com/?profile to access your index page’s debug and profile devkits, respectively.

Note that the devkit extensions must be installed and enabled in order for the devkit interfaces to be available.

Details

The devkit interface contains a link to the page editor for a given page, and additional links for each installed devkit. There are two devkit extensions included with the Symphony core:

Debug Devkit

The debug devkit, accessed by appending ?debug to a page’s URL, provides access to the following:

  • the result output
