Application Services Logging

When writing code in application-services, code implemented in Rust, Kotlin, Java, or Swift might have to write debug logs. To do so, one should generally log using the normal logging facilities for the language. Where the logs go depends on the application which is embedding the components.

On android, logs currently go to logcat. (This may change in the future.) Android Studio can be used to view the logcat logs; connect the device over USB and view the Logcat tab at the bottom of Android Studio. Check to make sure you have the right device selected at the top left of the Logcat pane, and the correct process to the right of that. One trick to avoid having to select the correct process (as there are main and content processes) is to choose "No Filters" from the menu on the top right of the Logcat pane. Then, use the search box to search for the log messages you are trying to find.

There are also many other utilities, command line and graphical, that can be used to view logcat logs from a connected android device in a more flexible manner.

Changing the loglevel in Fenix

If you need more verbose logging, after the call to RustLog.enable() in FenixApplication, you may call RustLog.setMaxLevel(Log.Priority.DEBUG, true).
