Running Simulation

Screenshot of 002-simulate

Eventually, you will want deploy to some real hardware. But for the start, XOD also offers a simulation mode that allows running a program right inside the IDE.

It’s useful to quickly test some ideas or just play around.

Exercise #

Let’s learn how to run our program!

  1. Hit Deploy → Simulate from the main menu.
  2. Observe how your current patch opens in a special “Debugger” tab, and the watch node becomes alive demonstrating the current counter value.
  3. To finish the simulation session press the “Stop” button in the upper right corner or close the debugger tab.

👆 Shortcut #

Use the button with a gamepad icon on the deployment pane to run the simulation with a single click. The deployment pane is at the bottom of the IDE window.
