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.

      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:
