Improving development process with ETC (printing text)


I’d like to know if there is anything that can improve the development process on the ETC…

I know that you can see exceptions on the info screen, and if I pass a string into the exception, I get that data:

raise Exception(“hello”)

But I am wondering, is there a way to print anywhere?

Or any other tricks that would help the development process?


I don’t think there is much possible without modifying the underlying software. ETC_Web and ETC_Mother are the relevant components. Ideally the web interface would provide a debug area where you could print stuff out…

another way is to make a mode that would just setup and draw a ‘child mode’. setup() would just call setup() on the child mode. and draw() would first call draw() on the child, then print stuff if needed.
