Is there a way to see the database queries in the console?
Yes, the desktop version of the container is essentially like a browser, this gives you access (with a debug build) to the google developer tools.
The process is as follows:
Right click on the view and select Toggle DevTools:
Verboseunder Tab Console > Custom levels
You will now be able to see all database queries running in the application as below
Being able to view the database queries will help a lot in development. This truly helped me personally to keep track of a view's performance and identifying improvements I can make.
