Howto debug templates in Akelos

One of the problems with having everything built into a framework is that, if someone messes up, it is really difficult to find where.
If you want to debug templates in Akelos (i.e. put error_log() calls inside your .tpl files), you’ll need to edit your config/config.php file and add

define(‘AK_TEMPLATE_SECURITY_CHECK’,false);

Then if you want to get more logs about what’s happening inside your application (as seen by Akelos), you can take the opportunity to also add

define(‘AK_LOG_EVENTS’,true);

This last constant definition will write all internal logs to the log/ directory (log/production.log if you’re in production, or log/development.log if you’re in development mode)
