I see this other question on a debug workflow for app development. In it, the answer is to use printfs and viewing the printed data on a terminal, but I don't see how that's easy with things like Gala, or settings plugs, etc. How should I go about getting, say, Gala off the Github, building it, running it, and stepping through the code?

My background is embedded systems (PIC18), and writing the odd C# app in Visual Studio. With these, I can use an IDE to step through the code, set breakpoints, view variable contents, etc.
