Whether you’re just beginning your digital transformation journey or are well on your way, we invite you to explore our partnership with Adobe and our diverse capabilities in manufacturing and automotive.
While attending one of the hands-on session labs at Adobe Summit 2017, I came across an interesting tool: the AEM Chrome Plug-in. Add the plug-in to your Chrome browser and configure it. When you open the Chrome Developer Tools, it shows as a tab. The UI is very simple and easy to navigate. It as a Tracer tab, which is the most powerful feature of this plugin.
As developers, whenever we see a page performance issue, we always go through tons of logs and trace it either manually or with the help of some external tools. By using this plug-in, the page request and its related logs are visible directly on the Chrome developer tools tab. The Tracer tab shows the in-depth detail of a page request and what queries are executed when the components are processed. See the image below.
This easy-to-use Chrome extension brings a lot of relief to the AEM developer community. It saves time to not have to go through multiple logs for information.
