We have created a powerful visual inspector for Effection. The inspector can show you which tasks are currently running. You can click on a task to focus in on it, see which tasks completed or failed and more.
Using the node inspector
npm install @effection/inspect --save-dev
You will need to import this package, and there are two main options that we recommend for doing so.
The first option is to import it from the entry point of your application (for
src/index.js or similar):
The second option is to run your
node command with
node -r @effection/inspect src/index.js
Once your application starts, you should see Effection print a message like this:
[effection] inspector available on http://localhost:34556
Open the URL in a browser and you should see the visual inspector.
Improving the output
To clarify the output produced by the inspector it can be very helpful to add labels to your tasks.
