Not completely sure what happened, but i upgraded Tracy on a site running 2.7.3 and it killed the site. I fixed the permissions on all of the Tracy files which were set incorrectly after upgrade, but this didn't prevent the issue.

 

Error: Call to a member function queryString() on null (line 507 of ....wire/core/WireInput.php)
This error message was shown because you are logged in as a Superuser. Error has been logged.

Do you have the very latest version of Tracy - that PW 2.x problem was reported already and I fixed in in 4.0.1, unless it is occurring for some other reason as well.

It's running 'version' => '4.0.4',

Thanks. Can you please try replacing lines 227 and 228 of TracyDebugger.module:

        // don't init Tracy for the PW Notifications module polling
        if(strpos($this->wire('input')->queryString(), 'Notifications=update') !== false) return;

with:

        // don't init Tracy for the PW Notifications module polling
        if($this->wire('input')) {
            $queryString = $this->wire('input')->queryString();
        }
        else {
            $info = parse_url($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
            $queryString = $info['query'];            
        }
        if(strpos($queryString, 'Notifications=update') !== false) return;

OK - thanks @adrian i will need to test this after 5pm (i think the owners are working in the admin so I don't want to crash the site during NY business hrs..)

No problem - thanks and sorry for the problems in the first place!

Just an FYI why this is happening. It turns out that I had to move lots of logic from ready() into init() to fix some more SessionHandlerDB issues. The problem is that $input seems to be available much earlier in PW 3 than it was in PW 2, hence the reporting of $input as null.

Hi everyone!

Introducing the new Style Admin by Server Type  feature. Hopefully this will reduce the chance of accidentally editing the wrong version of a site when you have more than one open in different tabs.

Firstly, a huge shoutout to @szabesz for the idea for this new feature and for lots of testing and suggestions to improve it. Also @tpr chipped in with some CSS help yet again!

This feature adds a ribbon down the side of the admin to let you know what version of the site you are on, eg. local, dev, staging, etc.

Firstly you will need to enable it in the config settings. Then you'll want to set up your various server types and colors. It comes with the following defaults.

If you don't like the side ribbon, you can actually style the output exactly how you want.

Admin styling: adding "pointer-events: none" could be useful I think.

Hey @tpr - where do you think this should be applied? Sorry if I am missing the obvious :)

To the recently added staging bar. In AOS for example it partly covers the sidebar so items loose hover state when you move the mouse over the bar.

Ok gotcha - I see how it helps now. I had a quick look and couldn't figure out what it achieved, but now I see and agree it's a little nicer. I wish there was a way to not have it partly cover the sidebar, but with those elements being absolutely positioned, I don't see an option. I think what I ended up with is a decent compromise though - it's narrow enough that it doesn't interfere, but is still obvious enough. If anyone has any better ideas I'd be happy to change.

A few updates to the server type indicator ribbon:

  1. It's now possible to display it on the frontend as well. It might seem weird, but on occasion I have been looking at the frontend in the wrong tab (live vs dev) and wondering why my changes aren't doing anything :)
  2. You can now hide the indicator along with the Tracy debug bar when you use the hide icon.
  3. Here is the css to use if you'd prefer to have the indicator along the bottom:
body::before {
    content: "[type]";
    background: [color];
    position: fixed;
    left: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    color: #ffffff;
    width: 100%;
    padding: 0;
    text-align: left;
    text-indent: 5px;
    font-weight: 600;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    z-index: 29999;
    font-size: 15px;
    height: 22px;
    line-height: 22px;
    pointer-events: none;
}

which looks like this rather than the default sidebar. It is of course also fixed so it always visible when you scroll.

Another minor (but hopefully useful addition) - you can now use keyboard shortcuts to move between items in the console panel history stack.

Back: CTRL+CMD+↑
Forward: CTRL+CMD+↓

The up and down arrows are to mimic unix based terminal history shortcuts. Unfortunately I had to add the CTRL+CMD in there as well because it's hard to find a combination that isn't already used for something else, either by the browser or ACE editor.

Anyway, hope you will find it useful for speedy switching back and forward between snippets of code you have recently run.

just popping by to say that Tracy made it possible for me to convert an old site where i was using direct output, to a delayed output model, which i needed to be able to handle the new requirements of the site; in particular, the template path feature was crucial – i was able to simply duplicate each template one at a time, rename to -dev, and work on the conversion until it was ready... Also the new styling looks great!

Thanks for the feedback @Macrura - I have often wondered how much use the template path (and template editor) panels were getting. Glad to hear that it helped you out :)

yeah, when i first started the conversion, i was basically scratching my head about how hard/complex it would be to change from direct to delayed; At some point along the way i remembered the tracy template path, and after that it just went really fast.. now that site's code has been completely refactored and it's so much cleaner!

Hi @adrian

Perhaps slightly off topic but...

I'd like to report that I had a recent differential backup that was growing rather fast, and it turned out to be tracy files in the session directory of the site. I've since excluded the offending session directory from the backup (shouldn't have been there in the first place) but it might be worth noting that the total size of all the tracy sessions files had grown into the 10s of GB. I wonder if there is any practical way Tracy could be made to cull its old session files?

Best wishes,
Steve

      PulsewayPush
      Send "push" from ProcessWire to Pulseway.
       
      Description
      PulsewayPush simply send a push to a Pulseway instance. If you are using this module, you probably installed Pulseway on your mobile device: you will receive notification on your mobile.
      To get more information about Pulseway, please visit their website.
      Note
      They have a free plan which include 10 notifications (push) each day.
       
      Usage
      Install the PulsewayPush module.
      Then call the module where you like in your module/template code :
      <?php $modules->get("PulsewayPush")->push("The title", "The notification message.", "elevated"); ?>  
      Hookable function
      ___push() ___notify() (the two function do the same thing)
       
      Download
      Github:  https://github.com/flydev-fr/PulsewayPush Modules Directory: https://modules.processwire.com/modules/pulseway-push/  
      Examples of use case
      I needed for our work a system which send notification to mobile device in case of a client request immediate support. Pulseway was choosen because it is already used to monitor our infrastructure.
      An idea, you could use the free plan to monitor your blog or website regarding the number of failed logins attempts (hooking Login/Register?), the automated tool then block the attacker's IP with firewall rules and send you a notification.

      11-22-2017: added the module to the modules directory
       
    • By netcarver
      Part 1 of a 2 part Module & Service Reveal.
      I'm currently working on a new module: ModuleReleaseNotes that was inspired by the work I originally did on making Ryan's ProcessWireUpgrades module "release" aware. In the end, I decided to ditch the approach I was originally taking and instead work on a module that hooked in to the UpgradeConfirmation dialog and the module edit page.
      Aims
      My aims for this module are as follows...
      Make discovery of a module's changes prior to an upgrade a trivial task. Make breaking changes very obvious. Make reading of a module's support documentation post-install a trivial task. Make module authors start to think about how they can improve the change discovery process for their modules. Make sure the display of information from the module support files/commit messages doesn't introduce a vulnerability. Looking at these in turn...
      Making discovery of a module's changes prior to upgrade a trivial task.
      This is done by adding a "What's changed section" to the upgrade confirmation dialog.  This section takes a best-effort approach to showing what's changed between the installed version and the updated version that's available via the module repository.
      At present, it is only able to talk to github-hosted repositories in order to ask them for the release notes, the changelog file (if present) and a list of commits between the git tag that matches the installed version and the tag matching the latest version.
      It will display the Release Notes (if the author is using the feature), else it will display the commits between the tags (if tagging is used by the module author) else it will show the changelog file (if present) else it will show the latest N commits on the master branch (N, of course, being configurable to your liking.)
      An example of the Github Release Notes pulled in for you, taken from Mike Rockett's TextformatterTypographer Module...

      An example of a tag-to-tag commit list from the same module...

      An example of a changelog - formatted to show just the changes (formatting styles will change)...

      Finally, an example of a fallback list of commits - sorry Adrian ...

       
      Making breaking changes obvious.
      This is currently done by searching for a set of configurable search strings. Later versions may be able to support breaking change detection via use of Semantic Versioning - but this may require some way of signalling the use of this versioning standard on a module-by-module basis.
      For now, then, you can customise the default set of change markers. Here I have added my own alias to the list of breaking change markers and the changes section of the changelog is styled accordingly (these will be improved)...

       
      Make reading of a module's support documentation, post-install, a trivial task.
      This is done by making some of the support files (like the README, CHANGELOG and LICENSE files) readable from the module's information/settings screen. There is an option to control the initial open/closed state of this section...

      Here is Tracy's README file from within the module settings page... 

       
      Make module authors start to think about how they can improve the change discovery process for their modules.
      There are notes in each of the sections displayed on the upgrade confirmation page that help authors use each of the features...

       
      Make sure display of external information doesn't introduce a vulnerability.
      This is an ongoing concern, and is the thing that is most likely to delay or prevent this module's release lead to this module's withdrawl should a vulnerability be found. Currently, output is formatted either via Markdown + HTML Purifier (if it was originally a Markdown file) or via htmlspecialchars() if it has come from a plaintext file.
      If you discover a vulnerability, please get in contact with me via the forum PM system.
       
      Ongoing...
      For now, I've concentrated on integration with GitHub, as most people use that platform to host their code. I know a few people are hosting their repositories with BitBucket (PWFoo comes to mind) and some with GitLab (Mike Rockett?) and I would eventually like to have adaptor implementations for these providers (and perhaps GitKraken) - but for now, GitHub rules and the other hosts are unsupported.

      Hi,
      I was wondering if anyone knew what this did? 

      If so, do you know what modules it actually impacts? Is there another log that lists the action it took?

      I'm having some weird problems with PHP duplicate declaration per link below, since this module was run.
