I wouldn't mind an option that keeps the debug bar locked in the bottom right because personally I never move it from there.

This CSS seems to be working well for me so far...

#tracy-debug-bar { position:fixed !important; left:auto !important; top:auto !important; right:0 !important; bottom:0 !important; }

@Robin S - I'll see what comes of those discussions over on the tracy github account, but if they don't implement an option to fix position, I will add one to the config settings that uses your css - thanks!

Hi @adrian,

Until Ryan adds core support for loading Tracy early, what do you think about adding some Tracy option to make it easier for users to load Tracy early if they don't mind making changes to the core index.php for that purpose? Something like Tracy checks if $config->earlyTracy is true and if so doesn't load files that will have been loaded in the modified index.php. So the user only has to modify core file(s) and not Tracy files.

On a related note, I'm trying to follow the suggestions you made here to load Tracy early but I can't get it working.

I have these extra lines in index.php...

require_once $config->paths->siteModules.'TracyDebugger/tracy-master/src/tracy.php';
require_once $config->paths->siteModules.'TracyDebugger/includes/TD.php';
require_once $config->paths->siteModules.'TracyDebugger/includes/ShortcutMethods.php';

...and have commented out their equivalents in TracyDebugger.module, but I get this error:

Fatal error: Class 'TracyDebugger' not found in D:\_Websites\_www\1testing\site\modules\TracyDebugger\includes\TD.php on line 6

 

Could you explain again any tricks you know for how to load Tracy early? Thanks.

Hi @Robin S - sorry for the slow response on this. Honestly I didn't really get very far attempting to load Tracy early. I thought it was ok initially, but as that thread showed, there were lots of issues I didn't initially see. I think it needs some significant investigation. I just don't have the time for that at the moment, but if you find a solution, I am very happy to implement any conditionals in Tracy to make it possible.

I just thought you might have some trick, because in this post you seemed to be able to use Tracy to dump inside Page::resetTrackChanges but when I tried bd() was undefined inside that method.

@Robin S - I'll have to get back to you on that when I get a minute to look into it.

Totally OT, I just wanted to mention this issue to you guys because it cost me some time today.

Now that Tracy by default uses __debugInfo() for d() an bd() calls, I was getting empty responses for d($input->get), post, cookies etc. I have posted an issue for Ryan: 
https://github.com/processwire/processwire-issues/issues/575 - please feel free to +1 it!

but in the meantime, you will need to set debugInfo to false or turn of __debugInfo() completely in the config settings.

I discovered the empty $input dump as soon as __debugInfo() was made the default dump in Tracy. Sorry, I should have raised it at the time but was in the middle of something so just changed back to the full dump setting and then forgot about it.

Maybe it's just because I'm more used the full dump, but I still prefer that option. I like having more info in the dump rather than less and don't mind wading through it to find what I'm looking for.

Yeah, I am not actually sure which I prefer at the moment - I think it depends on the complexity and also how well Ryan implemented __debugInfo() for the object type in question.

Welcome to the club, Adrian 😉 +1 for making the large dump default. I also think it's better to turn it off if you need but see everything by default so that misleading situations like yours and mine some days ago are less likely to happen

Hey Bernhard - not sure on this yet - I think for the average new Tracy user using __debugInfo() is a more useful experience - a full PW object can be quite overwhelming for the uninitiated. Of course once you're comfortable with them they're fine, but they also often require the use of bdb() or bd($page, [8]) type calls to get to all the info you need and a new user may not know about those options yet and just think that those [...] mean that the info isn't available.

For those reasons I am tempted to leave as is for the moment.

Note that Ryan just implemented __debugInfo() for WireInput: https://github.com/processwire/processwire/commit/105ba2b8ebbdf4e65f2300bf79b233850107c4d6 so that issue is solved at least.

Sure, I'm with you here. But I think it's much more critical to get an empty dump than to get a bloated one where you need to look for the correct information and maybe turn on the "cleanup feature". But I can live with both versions, of course ;)

Edit: @adrian could it maybe show a notice on empty debugInfo objects to turn "debugInfo cleanup" OFF to be sure it is really empty?

Hey @bernhard - I get your issue with empty vs bloated for sure. When I get some time I'll look into the possibility of a check for an empty object, although I do think that maybe that's something the PW wire __debugInfo method might be the best way to handle this.

Just an FYI - Ryan just added a detailed PageFiles __debugInfo() method, so now we get this in the Request Info panel, which is pretty nice!

Hi @adrian, what do you think of adding a Facebook Sharing Debugger panel to the module? It requires login and there's no GET way to force "Scrape again" (as I know) but still it would make easier to check the opengraph data on a page. For me a simple link would suffice (unlike the Validator panel).

If you just want a link to that page with the site's URL passed, have you tried the Custom PHP panel?

That said, I am curious about a more complete integration and a dedicated panel - I'll add it to my list for when I have a spare 5 minutes - it's busy here ATM :)

No, I haven't tried this time but recently I've added buttons to it. Just wanted to mention this because this feature could be useful also to others (or am I the only one blessed with such a client? :))

hey adrian, hope you are enjoying your vacation!

what do you think of adding a section in the request info panel that shows the code needed for creating this field via api (for example in process module)?

$form->add([
  'type' => 'page',
  'label' => __('Mail auswählen'),
  'derefAsPage' => 1, // single or null
  'inputfield' => 'InputfieldAsmSelect',
  'template_id' => 73, // mail
  'value' => 23669,
]);

The request info panel has all the necessary informations:

If we had a section "Field code" we could just create fields in the Backend and then copy/paste them in our modules 🙂

It should be optional/temporary so that there is no extra markup generated when it is not needed. Tracy already outputs a lot... Anyway, I like the idea 🙂

You can already disable the request panel... And you can disable tracy completely. Don't think there is a need to overcomplicate things where we already have solutions 🙂

Ok, I've created a PR that does at least the first part of what I requested: https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/pull/22

2018-05-15--12-05-11.png.92775982a2846fb1ac4e38fd3580bcfb.png

@szabesz adrian was crazy enough to implement exactly what you requested, so that's is already possible 😉

@adrian

Regarding my PR: Not sure why, but I have an options field that does not show any information about the selectable options in the request info panel. Also I'm not sure how to work with multilanguage fields, as the inputfield seems to be always single language.

hey @adrian 

just had to update thousands of pages via tracy and that's a bit of a problem using the tracy console because if the task takes a long time you have no idea what is going on behind the scenes... that's my workaround that i'm using:

 

ini_set('max_execution_time', 60*10);
file_put_contents('debug.txt', '');
$sel = 'template=feedback';
d($pages->count($sel));
foreach($pages->find($sel) as $i=>$p) {
    file_put_contents('debug.txt', "$i: {$p->id},  {$p->path}\n", FILE_APPEND);
    $p->save();
}

Then I do this to follow:

tail -f site/assets/cache/TracyDebugger/debug.txt

Of course that is totally fine to use, but it would be even nicer to have something like this:

$sel = 'template=feedback';
d($pages->count($sel));
foreach($pages->find($sel) as $i=>$p) {
    fd("$i: {$p->id},  {$p->path}\n", 60*10);
    $p->save();
}

fd() being filedump() setting the max_execution_time, flushing the file on each new console request and appending the dump to it while execution is in progress (just like in my verbose example above);

What do you think of that idea? I know there are other tools around and I'm thinking of implementing such a feature for my RockGrid batcher, but tracy console is always available and by far the quickest option.

Or is there maybe a similar option? fl() dumps only when finished, so if there is an error (max execution time or max memory or the like) you are lost... if the dump is in a file you can lookup how far you got and continue from that stage.

edit: fd() could also be handy when dumping huge amount of data or html code or the like, because then you could leave that file open in your IDE and anayse it quickly with syntax highlighting etc.

filedump.gif.373ccee2cfb2c6074c0a74aadbd37f7b.gif

VSCode automatically updates the file while it is populated. For larger dumps tail -f would be better of course.

Another example of doing a cleanup, population of random values and creating cache:

Hey adrian, me again 😉

I wonder how hard it would be to have the option of enabling/disabling tracy for special pages. I have some performance issues (not severe) here while developing something with my RockGrid module, so disabling Tracy makes working a lot more comfortable. On another page (a custom process module showing charts) I need tracy, so what I do is using the enable/disable button in the debug bar. This always needs a reload and is tedious if you need it more often.

Could there be an option "disable tracy on this special page"?

It seems there's already a config setting for tracy but that had no effect when I tried it. Maybe I did something wrong?

Edit: Tracy is already disabled on modals (when &modal=1 is in the url), so maybe we could just introduce a get variable ?tracy=off 🙂

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
