Tracy Debugger

Recommended Posts

Hey @Zeka - I have a fix for you, although I think you'll have to do it in your module - I haven't figured out how to do it from the Tracy side yet.

Add this to the top of your TemplateFile::render hook:

    if(strpos($event->object->filename, 'TracyDebugger') !== false) return;

I haven't had a good look (too busy atm), but if someone else has an idea on how Tracy could remove/cancel a TemplateFile::render hook when running code via Console/Snippet Runner I'd be happy to do it from Tracy's side instead.


PS - here's another possible option instead of the above:

    if(str_replace('site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/', '', $event->object->filename) !== $this->wire('page')->template->filename) return;

This will ignore your hook if the template file from the hook event is different to the template file for the current page. I am not sure about this in your situation, but if it works it's obviously more flexible than just blocking Tracy template files.

Quite a noob question about WireExceptions. 

Have two exceptions ( output of PW logs) :

exceptions 2018‑03‑02 15:34:22 | admin | http://test.local:4000/shop/Method | TemplaterLayout::render does not exist or is not callable in this context (in D:\laragon\www\test\app\wire\core\Wire.php line 519) 

modules | 2018‑03‑02 15:31:10 | admin |http://test.local:4000/shop/ | Failed to ready module: Templater - Method TemplaterLayout::setTemplateFile does not exist or is not callable in this context

The first one generates full report like

The second one is only visible in PW logs panel without full report.

Why are they handled in different ways? 

Thanks.

Hi @Zeka

I am not totally sure about why, but from what I can tell errors that show up in PW logs, but are not picked up by Tracy because the error is triggered in PW before Tracy is loaded. I have asked @ryan about adding a special method to allow loading Tracy earlier - he initially sounded supportive, but he hasn't gotten back to me since my follow up request. I think it's  only ever a problem when doing something in init() so it doesn't happen that often.

How did you go with those snippets to fix the Console panel problem?

@adrian Do you have a future request on git, so I can support it? 

As for Console panel, both of your snippets didn't work. I have sent you a PM.

No - it was a PM that I sent to Ryan - I didn't want to bug him about it publicly. I just tried to add you to the PM, but it said you couldn't be added - not sure, I haven't used that feature before.

Thanks for the module link - I'll take a look.

Hi @adrian, just wondering if Tracy should create the "tracy-debugger" permission on install to save the user creating it manually?

Only reason I didn't do this for Tracy is that I doubt many people use this option - just figured it was one extra permission to clog up the list that perhaps only a very small percentage of users will actually apply to a role in their system.

Does that seem fair enough? Or are lots of you actually using to to give Tracy access to non-superusers? If so, I can add to the install routine.

Yes, that's fair enough. I don't give anyone but myself access to Tracy, but need it sometimes when testing from non-superuser roles on a live server. But not all that regularly, and it doesn't take long to create the permission manually.

That's what the User Switcher panel is for :) Have you tried it out?

Hi @adrian,

I just installed the MarkupLoadRSS module and all kinds of stuff started happening with Tracy. :D

First, I noticed that I can't place the mouse in the snippet name field. As soon as you click in the text box the cursor is immediately placed back in the console window. This is fresh PW.94 localhost install and Tracy.25 is the only other module installed.

Second, I now get the following:

Exception: Objects returned by MarkupLoadRSS::getIterator() must be traversable or implement interface Iterator in /var/www/tgp/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/TracyDebugger/panels/RequestInfoPanel.php:181
Stack trace:
#0 /var/www/tgp/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/TracyDebugger/tracy-master/src/Tracy/Bar.php(159): RequestInfoPanel->getPanel()
...

Lastly, I cannot scroll the results pane horizontally. There is no scroll bar.

I have uninstalled the rss module, shutdown pw, and restarted... the behavior is consistent. So I am not sure whether this was present before I installed the rss module.

I am not sure if this is related, but on another localhost development site (never had rss module installed), I upgraded Tracy from .23 to .25 and got this error:

Failed to init module: TracyDebugger - Tracy\Debugger::dispatch() called after some output has been sent. Output started at /.../wire/core/FileCompiler.php:980

And the behavior is identical as seen with the other localhost site.

 

Edit: Additional Info...

I am not able to select any text from within the results pane. It behaves as if some selection is already in progress. When attempting to make a selection, either by mouse or keyboard, the selection starts at the very beginning of the results pane content and selects wherever the mouse or keyboard control was initiated. I have seen something like this before quite a while back. If I remember correctly it was a JS issue. I do not remember how it was resolved.

Hey @rick - sorry you've hard a bad run with Tracy here.

1) I believe the issue with MarkupRSSLoad to be a bug in that module. Replace this line:

https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/MarkupLoadRSS/blob/16e735b9ccc015eb36814689f862c007bff935a9/MarkupLoadRSS.module#L207

with:

    protected $items = array();

and this function:

https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/MarkupLoadRSS/blob/16e735b9ccc015eb36814689f862c007bff935a9/MarkupLoadRSS.module#L428-L430

with:

    public function getIterator() {
        return new ArrayObject($this->items);
    }

If that works and you find the module still works as expected, perhaps you could post an issue for Ryan on that module's github page.

 

2) As for the snippet name field in the Console panel - that is fixed in the latest version just committed.

3) I am getting a horizontal scrollbar in the Console panel here. Maybe there is some specific I am not doing to reproduce - can you provide more details?

image.thumb.png.99a1ba0868adcd1370e9067f1afbce21.png

 

4) I have seen the "Failed to init module: TracyDebugger - Tracy\Debugger::dispatch()" error a few times - it can happen when some error is output to the browser before Tracy is called. I am keeping my eye on this to see if it's something that can be fixed, but not sure it can. Let me know if you continue to see it on a regular basis and if something specific triggers it.

 

5) I can select text from the results pane, but maybe I just fixed that at the same time I fixed the snippet name focus issue. Let me know if you still have problems with this.

Hi @adrian,

I haven't had a bad run with Tracy at all. On the contrary, I nominate Tracy for module of the year. And you have done an excellent job of maintaining this indispensable tool.

I've made the changes to the rss module. I don't see anything crop up yet. Thanks for those.

Upgraded to Tracy.26 on both local installs and all is functioning well.

I appreciate your time and help!

A couple of tweaks today.

1) The "Template Info" section in Request Info panel now properly shows the data for the template being edited when you are editing the settings for a template in the admin.

2) The User Switcher now has an option to limit the list of available users by restricted roles. I had a site where I was using the Users system to store details for frontend members so the list was ridiculously long. Now I can exclude that member role to keep the list concise and easy to use.

Most of the time you can debug modules just fine - it all depends on the load order of things. I have asked Ryan via PM if he'd consider a special hook so that Tracy can be loaded earlier so that it's always available for all modules.

Perhaps we need a Github feature request for this?

Maybe it should come from someone other than me?

@adrian Here you are. Please take a look. I am not sure I put it well enough.

 

Thanks for that - I have commented on your request and also provided a very simple hack this get it working right now by including the tracy core file in the index.php at the root of your site. It seems to work brilliantly - great for debugging PW core files even.

Would be great if others could add their +1 to this please!

Is there an easy way to enable/disable Tracy debugger via API? As I am still on my way to create test with PHPUnit it would be awesome if there's an easy way (ideally via config.php) to disable tracy if it's called from the phpunit testing scripts.

Hi @adrian,

I'm seeing an issue in the Console panel where the indentation (tabs) of saved snippets gets lost when the page is reloaded. In the screen capture below I save the snippet with the correct indentation and I can load that snippet again okay until I reload the page. After that the snippet doesn't load with the correct indentation.

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      FieldtypeConfigForm.zip
      Edit: 14. August 2018. please delete/uninstall previously downloaded zip

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
