Host DebuggerΒΆ

The Host Debugger is a GUI tool to run and debug hosts that are usually executed with aliquisd. It is based on Qt and thus it requires Qt > 5.6 and PySide2 installed. The tool can be installed by defining BUILD_HOST_DEBUGGER=1 when building Aliquis sources.

The Host Debugger is compatible with most aliquisd hosts, but a simple editing is required in order to use its advanced features.

Source stages must be replaced with a SOURCE_SOCKET stage, therefore a stage like:

stages {
  name: "source"
  type: SOURCE_IMAGE
  source_param {
    path: "$images"
  }
}

must be replaced with:

stages {
  name: "source"
  type: SOURCE_SOCKET
  source_socket_param {
    default_path: "$images"
  }
}

After that, the tool can be started by running:

aliquis_host_debugger
