Debugging your UI

Updated on November 15, 2021
Applicable to Theme Ui-Kit applications

Debug your UI efficiently by directly modifying interface elements that are rendered on the current page. The Live UI tool helps you make quick UI adjustments at run time and publish or discard your changes immediately.

The Live UI tool assists you in debugging your interface by giving you a great level of control over the UI. For example, you can access individual rules, navigate a hierarchy of rules, and perform actions in bulk. You can edit fine details of sections and layouts by moving or editing such elements as links or icons.

  • Live UI

    Live UI helps citizen developers make adjustments to the user interface in a more intuitive manner. When you use the Live UI tool, you can inspect the UI components on your screen, and access basic actions and settings for each element. This approach gives users with less technical experience a convenient tool for fixing small UI issues.

  • Enabling run-time branching and editing

    Help citizen developers safely make changes to the UI by setting up a branch for run-time editing in Live UI. With this approach, less experienced developers can introduce changes to the interface in a separate environment, and the lead developer can later review the updates and merge them with the main product.

  • Editing with Live UI

    Make instant adjustments to your user interface in the Live UI tool. The Live UI tool gives you detailed insight into the structure of your application's UI, and helps you add, move, and delete components, such as layouts and controls, directly at run time.
