Log files live in .showyourwork/logs. There is typically a log file for showyourwork! messages and errors (showyourwork.log), one for Snakemake messages and errors, including the full verbose Snakemake workflow output (snakemake.log), and one for LaTeX messages and errors (tectonic.log).

If you run into any errors in your build, these log files might help you debug! Note that you can increase the verbosity of Snakemake by passing the --verbose command line option to showyourwork build.

Finally, you can also set verbose: true in showyourwork.yml, which causes everything that usually gets printed to snakemake.log to be printed to the terminal in real time.
