Is there a way, in compose desktop, to dump a Skia SKP file for debugging purposes? Or in general, is there any tool in works to debug layouts (similar to how it's done in Android)
Actually, I've cursedly managed to wrap the main skia view and start recording SKP files. If there is any "official" way to do so, then great. I see there's no "debug metadata" added to the skia draw calls, I don't know if it's because of the method I'm using or because there is no metadata like what I suppose gets used on the Android Layout tool in Android Studio to debug layouts in Compose. This is my code (warning: EXTREMELY CRUDE code):
In general, I suppose my question is more, is there any tooling currently in build for inspecting compose desktop's composables (e.g. debugging layouts, accessibility, modifiers etc.)
