Wouldn’t it be super useful for SmartThings IDE to leverage the debug levels (trace, info, etc…) with an IDE setting to filter/show only values chosen?
I find that most apps blindly use whatever they want, and there’s no real ability to filter or show only that which is important. Logs are everything or nothing. At best you have two levels right now, looking at events, or the full log.
I also feel like this wouldn’t be that hard. And I’m really hoping I’m just missing something obvious.
I thought I’d put that in the IDE ideas thread, but maybe I just mentioned it in IRC. But yes. Post it in this thread so Brian sees it and can put it on his radar.
As some of you already know, I recently became an employee of SmartThings. My job is to improve the IDE. Since I started as a community developer, I have my own list of issues that I’m hoping to improve. I would also like to hear from you about the problems you run into.
If you can split individual issues into separate posts, that would be ideal. If you agree with something someone else has posted, hit the heart icon. That will help me see which issues affect the most people.
I can’t promise to fix everything you tell us for reasons that are familiar to devs everywhere (time involved, priorities, etc). But I will address everything I can.

What’s the difference between “info” and “trace”?
From one Brian to another Brian, I’ll get this information to Brian.

…or at least set up some sort of shadow government.

Form a “dyslexic Brian Trust”…
Brain trust began as a term for a group of close advisers, often academics, to a political candidate or incumbent, prized for their expertise in particular fields. The term is most associated with the group of advisers to Franklin Roosevelt during his presidential administration. More recently the use of the term has expanded to encompass any group of advisers to a decision maker, whether or not in politics. Early use of the term "brain trust" was patterned on the use of the term "trust" to dep...
