Debug apps running on remote servers using Ray

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 1 minute read

Earlier this year, we released Ray, a desktop app that allows you to debug faster. Instead of dumping values to the browser or console, Ray allows you to display debugging information beautifully in a dedicated window.

Since launch, Ray helps you debug local projects. Today, we're adding the most requested feature to Ray: the ability to connect to remote servers. All output of the ray() call, will be sent securely from your remote server to the local app via SSH.

Using this feature, you can quickly investigate problems on your production servers that you are unable to recreate locally.

In this short video you'll see a quick demo!

If you're not familiar with Ray yet, read this blogpost on why we created Ray and how you can use it. Do also check out the docs and promotional site.

Since launch, our team has added a lot of features. If you have any feature request or questions, let us now via the discussions tab on spatie/ray.
