In this release of IBM Cloud Tools for Swift (ICT), we added the ability to view your server application’s logs. Log viewing includes logs you generate in your application and those created by the Bluemix hosting environment. By combining both of these sources, it will be easier to debug your application in the event of a crash or deployment failure and track the progress of your app’s deployments.
As you may know, IBM Cloud Tools for Swift (ICT) was written in Swift, by Swift developers, to make it easier to deploy and run Swift on the server. While ICT is focused on Swift-based applications, it is also able to monitor and manage other Bluemix runtimes. In this post, I’ll show you the steps for creating a Node.js app and using ICT running locally on your computer to make a change the app, redeploy it, and add a service to it.
