Debug post_upgrade

Assuming there is one, what’s the tool again that helps deserialize the output of a failing post_upgrade message?

I’m trying to debug my branch locally and got a long post_upgrade error msg. Pretty sure that if I would be able to transform all these these numbers in their textual representation, even if not structured, I would find what’s my problem.

Nevermind, I found out the issue by looking at my code for the 100th times :wink:.

That said, for future reference, if anyone knows the answer, might be interesting.

These numbers are candid encoded message, it is possible to decode it, however without specs you will get numbers instead of property names

I should be possible to decode without the did files using didc.

Assuming I would have saved the Candid string from the post_upgrade hook in a file e.g. hello.txt, I could have decoded it with following script:

didc decode "$value"
