Advanced Debug Info

A user edited version of the Debug plugin on this page, offering different features from the original. By Michael Brüning (forum user).

This plugin adds to the xxx_skin.xml file, a csv list (as a comment) listing:

  • The number of groups and panos.
  • Is project name and author info available?
  • Does the project (group, pano) have a description? (The description itself can also be included into the resulting output).
  • Which output formats were generated?
  • A list of groups with all embedded panos
  • Is every pano added to an explicit group?
  • Does every group have a floorplan mapfile attached?
  • Is every pano linked to at least once?
  • Does every pano at least one link to another pano?


Just like it's original version, having this plugin in your project can significantly increase build time.
