Problem seems to be here:


$paths = array($root);

Might be misunderstanding something but don't think the root directory is wanted in that array.

I can't see why it's there either. I have removed here and it's still working fine (although it was working fine for me with it also). Does it fix the problem at your end?

Thanks - also an error here:


ErrorException: is_file(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(classes/CaptainHookSearch.php)

 

Do you have anymore details on this error. There isn't actually an is_file() call in that CaptainHookSearch.php file. Maybe if you sent me your open_basedir restrictions it would help me to reproduce.

A more verbose error message:

ErrorException: is_file(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(classes/CaptainHookSearch.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/vhosts/domain.com/:/tmp/) in /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/sub.domain.com/wire/core/FileCompiler.php:312
Stack trace:
#0 [internal function]: Tracy\Bar->Tracy\{closure}(2, 'is_file(): open...', '/var/www/vhosts...', 312, Array)
#1 /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/sub.domain.com/wire/core/FileCompiler.php(312): is_file('classes/Captain...')

So it's the FileCompiler I guess. 

For the open_basedir I have the default setting in Plesk:

{WEBSPACEROOT}{/}{:}{TMP}{/}

Thanks @tpr - that helps. Could you please try the latest version. Hopefully I have fixed that and the problem @Robin S was having.

I have also added /site/modules/ so it is also scanned for hookable methods. This means the list of files/hooks will now also include all your installed 3rd party modules.

No errors here, thanks!

I really think there could be a search/filter box in the panels. I know it's hard because panel layouts are different but it could greatly improve productivity (e.g the new CaptainHook panel is about 4 screens high here).

I agree and have been contemplating it, but not sure the best approach. Do we need to filter just the filenames, or do we need to filter to the method name? If it's the former, then CTRL/CMD + F is possibly just as easy as a filter. If we also want method names then things will obviously get a bit trickier - do we need to add the name of each method to a data attribute for each file so it can be filtered? Do we want to automatically expand filtered files?

Any thoughts?

Imo many panels could be enhanced with a filter, not only CaptainHook. But as I wrote I know it's complicated and the filter should work differently in each panels. Unless I'm mistaken some panels even load data with Ajax, making things even worse. If I knew a cross-panel solution I would have created a PR :) I think ctrl+F will do now :)

New Captain Hook version just posted!

Changes:

  • I have rewritten the file parser so that it uses token_get_all, rather than a regex. This makes it much faster and it also makes it easier to exclude functions that are commented out. Please let me know if you notice any files/hookable methods that aren't listed.
  • Added a new column which has the className::hookName formatted and ready to copy/paste.
  • Hooks for site modules will be automatically added when a new module is installed.
  • Cached version is now stored in the DB cache table, rather than on the filesystem.

All fixed, thanks. I'm really liking how easy it is to jump straight to the method in my code editor via the clickable line number. A real timesaver.

@adrian, a while ago @bernhard came up with a cool idea for a "hook recorder":

I'm wondering if you and he think this is something that might be integrated into Tracy Debugger. Now that there is the feature in Tracy (thanks @owzim) for parsing the hookable methods from the wire/site directories, I was thinking that there could be a feature that temporarily appends hooks for all hookable methods to /site/init.php or /site/ready.php. These "auto-hooks" would just do something simple like log/dump the method name as the hook fires.

Of course this would be terrible for site performance - it's something you would only enable briefly during development to work out which hookable methods are firing as PW completes some task.

What do you think?

Another update!

There is now a "Toggle All" button which may come in handy if you want to search for a method (CTRL/CMD + F) to see the classes it exists in.

Tip: search for "___save", rather than "save" so it doesn't find it twice on each row.

Another update, unrelated to Captain Hook - now each panel in the Selector Panel has an info iconlinked to the relevant section in the "Introducing Tracy Debugger" blog post so you can get quick information about what each panel does.

Sounds like a good idea to me. @bernhard actually mentioned here as well many pages back, but I never got around to it.

@bernhard - do you have the latest version of the code available somewhere?

And now for something completely different - Tracy Debugger ProcessWirified! :)

td-pw-design.gif

It's still in "alpha" (meaning spent only 15 minutes on it) but feels much better. Note the semi-transparent borders (no drop shadow), full-height header buttons and the PW colors (borrowed from the Reno theme).

That is looking really nice - I agree, the default styles from the Tracy core are ugly as :) - really looking forward to your final version - thanks! BTW - nice seeing that you are making good use of the console Snippets :)

While you're in the mode for tackling this stuff, if you feel like it, it would be incredible if you'd be willing to take a look at this: https://github.com/nette/tracy/pull/241

As it mentions, that PR is a work in progress, but it looks like it's going to do more harm than good in my opinion. From my initial experiments, it's going to make it very difficult to get the ACE editor styles into the Console panel. In particular, have a read of my comment here: https://github.com/nette/tracy/pull/241#issuecomment-273268211 - most importantly, note that I always hack the Tracy core's /tracy-master/src/Tracy/assets/Bar/bar.css to change line #23 from #tracy-debug * { to #tracy-debug-bar * {

Perhaps we should talk about this more via PM if you are interested in helping to get everything working with that new approach that is in the works.

PS - no pressure - I am sure you have lots of other things to do. I have been putting it off for the moment myself :)

My changes are only minor ones so I can easily re-add them even if Tracy devs change most styling. I can send the CSS if you need in the meantime.

Those snippets are mainly for testing but the Console panel itself oftencomes in very handy :)

hi adrian,

nice that you take up my idea. i may have the code somewhere but i don't think it would be helpful. i did a manual search&replace in the wire folder that writes all calls to a file. i think you'll have a much better approach in some minutes :)

looking forward to your solution.

what i mentioned when playing with it was, that it gets quite messy very quickly. there are lots of hookable methods and on every pagesave or edit there are lots of recorded hooks. it would be necessary to build some UI around that. or additional informations, like a dump of the event object or the like. I'm not sure what the best solution would be for this.

do you understand what i'm talking about? :)

Hi all!

Major overhaul / refactor just committed.

To quote Github: Showing 54 changed files with 1,705 additions and 1,295 deletions. Yes, I haven't slept much lately :)

I have tried to test everything very thoroughly, but with so many changes, there might be new bugs introduced. Please let me know if you find any issues.

You'll also noticed that I have bumped the version number to 4.0.0 and am using a string now so that I can start being more semantic with the version numbers.

Here's a rough highlight of the changes.

  • New skin - a huge thanks to @tpr for all his efforts on this, not to mention lots of other feedback / bug reports while developing this new version!
  • Captain Hook Improvements - it now shows dynamically added hooks, like Page::viewable in both the core and your site module. Also some general cleanup.
  • More SessionHandlerDB fixes - there were still some outstanding issues with some of the lesser used panels. Hopefully we're closer to this being a non-issue.
  • Improved CSS loading - in particular when opening panels in a popup window.
  • General code updates - various things, including updating wire() and $this calls to $this->wire() where appropriate.
  • Lots of bug fixes - mostly issues with the lesser used panels that had gone unnoticed, but still it's amazing what you find when you do a major refactor. 
  • Better code documentation - not my strong point in the past - hopefully this is now on the way to being much better.
  • File / folder restructuring - not really of concern to you guys, but will make life a little easier for me going forward with future enhancements.

Captain Hook panel showing new dynamic hookable methods and @tpr's fantastic new skin!

I have just added a "Config" section to the Debug Mode panel. This returns a nicely formatted table of all the properties of $config - this includes those set in /wire/config.php and /site/config.php, as well as many other derived system settings. 

To make this visible you will either need to add 'config' to the $config->debugTools array in /site/config.php, or uncheck "Respect the PW $config->debugTools config option" in the Tracy config settings.

It shows way too many things to list here, but I think it makes a nice additional resource, so please be sure to check it out. Of course all arrays are expandable.

Just been playing around with a quick visual indicator to let you know if you are on the local or live version of a site. It's done by IP address using the same code that Tracy uses for its DETECT module to switch between DEV and PRODUCTION. 

Not sure how useful this is, but I do know that I sometimes have the local and live versions of a site open in separate browser tabs and occasionally I'll accidentally edit content in the wrong one. I am usually very careful, but we all make mistakes and just thought this might help as an additional visual indicator (without having to look at the address bar). Of course it could be taken further with customizable colors and customizable ways of defining what is dev vs staging vs production if they are all on live servers.

Any thoughts on whether you guys would make use of this?

Me too! See:

While I like this indicator, it is way too subtle, not to mention that often I have Tracy turned off for the backend.

I was wondering about both of these. I actually always have Tracy on in the backend (especially now that we have the "Reference page being edited" option), but I understand that not everyone will. I could pretty easily color the masthead in the backend, eg:

It can start looking pretty ugly but I guess since it's only for superusers (and other authorized Tracy users) it doesn't really matter ?

Absolutely :)

Now the question is whether it should just be local vs live (detected by IP address), or whether it also needs to include subdomain detection so you can color by dev.mysite.com vs staging.mysite.com vs mysite.com. Any thoughts?

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      Croppable Image 3
      for PW 3.0.20+
      Module Version 1.1.16
      Sponsored by http://dreikon.de/, many thanks Timo & Niko!
      You can get it in the modules directory!
      Please refer to the readme on github for instructions.
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Updating from prior versions:
       
      Updating from Croppable Image 3 with versions prior to 1.1.7, please do this as a one time step:
      In the PW Admin, go to side -> modules -> new, use "install via ClassName" and use CroppableImage3 for the Module Class Name. This will update your existing CroppableImage3 module sub directory, even if it is called a new install. After that, the module will be recogniced by the PW updater module, what makes it a lot easier on further updates.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------

      UPDATE: I have published a stable version of this module!
      Discussion thread:
      Github: https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      ---
      Hello there,
      I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution 🙂
      It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright 😅
      You can download the module from Github:
      https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      There's some more information in the readme as well.
      Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.

      I'm really in love with FormBuilder, but the one thing missing to match all my end users' expectations were repeatable field groups. Think repeaters, in ProcessWire terms. Our primary application of PW is our corporate intranet, so "lines" of fields are quite common in the forms I build. We have all kinds of request forms where the information for a varying number of colleagues needs to be entered (from meal order to flight booking request) and where it is simply impractical to send a form for each, and I don't want to clutter my forms with multiple instances of fields that may only get used ten percent of the time.
      That's why I started to build FormBuilderMultiplier (link to GitHub).
      What it does:
      Adds an option to make a regular Fieldgroup repeatable Lets you limit the number of instances of a Fieldgroup on the form Adds an "Add row" button the form that adds another instance of the Fieldgroup's fields Adds a counter suffix at the end of every affected field's label Stores the entered values just like regular fields Makes the entered values available in preview and email notifications Supports most text based fields, textareas and selects (really, I haven't had enough time to test all the available choices yet) What it doesn't do (yet):
      Support saving to ProcessWire pages (i.e. real Repeaters) I haven't tested all the validation stuff, Date/Time inputs etc. yet, but since I'm utterly swamped with other stuff at work, I didn't want to wait until I have it polished. Any feedback is welcome. There might also be some issues with different output frameworks that I haven't encountered yet. The forms I work with mostly use UIKit.
      Status:
      Still alpha, so test well before using it in the field.
      Known issues:
      When rows are added, the form's iframe needs to be resized, which isn't completely clean yet.
      How it works:
      The Fieldgroup settings are added through regular hooks, as is the logic that adds the necessary field copies for processing the form and displaying previews.
      "Multiplied" field instances are suffixed with _NUM, where NUM is an incremental integer starting from 1. So if you have add two fields named "surname" and "givenname" to a fieldgroup and check the "multiply" checkbox, the form will initially have "surname_1" and "givenname_1" field (I'm still considering changing that to make the risk to shoot oneself into the foot by having a regular "surname_1" field somewhere else in the form less likely).
      When a "row" is added, the first row is cloned through JS and the counter in the fields' IDs, names and "for" attributes as well as the counter in the label are incremented before appending the copies to the Fieldset container in the form.
      To keep backend and frontend in sync, a hidden field named [name of the fieldset]__multiplier_rows is added to the form. Both the backend and the frontend script use this to store and retrieve the number of "rows".
      ToDo:
      Naturally, add the option to store the data in real repeaters when saving to pages. Do a lot of testing (and likely fixing). Make a few things (like the "Add row" button label etc.) configurable in field(set) context. Add a smooth API to retrieve the multiplied values as WireArrays. The mandatory moving screenshot:
