There is a debug flag available on the configuration for SearchDriver and SearchProvider.

<SearchProvider config={
  debug: true
  //...
}>

Setting this to true will make the searchUI object available globally on window. This will allow you to programmatically execute actions in the browser console which can be helpful for debugging.

window.searchUI.addFilter("states", "California", "all");

This will also log actions and state updates as they occur to the console in the following form:

Search UI: Action {Action Name} {Action Parameters}
Search UI: State Update {State to update} {Full State after update}
