How can I see script errors for my python MIDI Remote Scripts in Ableton Live? I've seen references online to a hidden Python console, but no documentation on how to open it, if it would even help me!
Currently I type code, reload the script, and see what happens. If nothing happens, then something is wrong. Very tedious...
Edit: I should also point out that there isn't anything useful in the
To debug the control surface, you can define your own log method like so:
def log(self, message): print >> sys.stderr, "LOG: " + message.encode("utf-8")
year = 1999 self.log("I'm gonna party like it's " + str(year))
This will append
21179419 ms. RemoteScriptError: LOG: Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999 21179419 ms. RemoteScriptError:
to your Log.txt.
Also, it may be worth knowing that (at least as of Live 9.1) edited control surface files are recompiled every time you load a new song, no need to restart the application.
