Hi Christian,

That's cool!

My main objective for such a debugger is to be able to run kernel images that do not come with a GUI, but at the same time to be able to debug and inspect the objects as you would with VNC. I imagine that when there is an error you get a mail with an URL that directly opens the Naplo debugger for that exception (of course you want to make that secure either ssh-tunneling into your server or using https and a login). So in comparison to using VNC you would gain (also for headful images) the possibility to debug errors that appear in production where so far you had to resort to reading the stacktrace you got by mail. That would be a big productivity win!

What I miss in its current state is a way to inspect/explore objects and evaluate code.
