How the debugging bar works? And how to hide it?

You know, that little floating bar on the top-left, if you’re an admin:

What triggers it to appear? What are we supposed to do with it? And how can we make it go away?

This is probably a very newbie question, but I couldn’t find any info about it.

It does look like an awesome debugging tool if I knew what the data meant (i.e. I was actually active on github). :stuck_out_tongue:

That’s the MiniProfiler. @sam has written an informative blog post about it.

Of course you can disable it.

Knowing the name makes the whole difference! :slight_smile:

Just press alt+p

It is only visible to developers, which is a state above admin and moderator. It means you installed the Discourse.
