Tracy Debugger

Recommended Posts

Hi @adrian thanks for the latest update to add autoload support (and to Ryan for putting it into the core this week) as I can now use Tracy in the preview tab in FormBuilder to do a little StreetAddress work. Much appreciated!

Nice! Glad to hear it's already proving useful 🙂

New version adds some configurable settings for the ACE code editor used in the Console panel and the File Editor panel:

image.thumb.png.fb874897ac33c90b80e05205e0430e55.png

I went with the defaults I like, but adjust to suit your preferences - don't judge my use of spaces over tabs - it's mostly about consistency when pasting into web forums and other places, but if you need another reason: Developers Who Use Spaces Make More Money Than Those Who Use Tabs 🙂

I am also a big fan of 4 character indentation but I do know that some people prefer 2, so take your pick.

The one thing that is new is the intro of Show Invisibles being set to true. That results in the following which I find quite useful at times.

image.png.77b494b57658e3b9af77094bb1d68b0b.png

Note the highlighted (in pink) character at the end. That actually isn't due to the Show Invisibles setting, but I thought I'd include in this screenshot to bring attention to this thread: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/19995-changing-structure-of-pages/?do=findComment&comment=173671 and how the Console panel can be a useful tool in finding non-printable characters that are causing syntax errors in your code.

I use this app on my Mac: https://www.bluem.net/en/projects/plain-clip/ Press SHIFT when launching Plain Clip.app to see its preferences settings panel.

I use it by launching it with ctrl+option+command+V and afterwards my launcher app performs a paste operation by simulating command+V. This way I rarely run into copy/paste issues like that.

Did you read my mind or was that always there? I wanted to post this request yesterday but found all shortcuts in the docs... then I thought why bother adrian again with something that is already there 🙂 awesome! thx

It's been there for about a week - pretty much just after all the new fullscreen and pane sizing shortcuts were added.

Latest version adds a new Inputfield Settings section to the RequestInfo panel when viewing a field in the admin. This is not turned on by default, so visit the module settings if you want to take it for a spin.

Speaking of the module settings, all relevant panels now have direct links to their section in the module config settings, eg:

image.png.7ef4266614601bb8d5ef5816a95ac518.png

The cog/gear icon at the bottom right will take you directly to this, which will hopefully make changes to panel settings much easier/quicker. Thanks to @bernhard for this suggestion.

Really great addition! Thank you!

I wonder what others think of having the icon left instead of right. I think it'd be an improvement. Maybe if others think the same it would be worth the effort. If not, I'm also happy to have it on the right side now 🙂  Thx again!

Sure.

I have just made the change and spent some time refactoring the generation of the panel footer area to make future changes much easier.

Hey @adrian thx again for the great panel settings shortcut. It already saved me from a lot of clicks 🙂 

For example today I added some todos in my code and activated the todo-panel. Then I had far too much todos indexed (from AOS and other modules) and I just clicked on the settings tab and added them to the list of not-to-index folders. Works great!

One thing I noticed is that when I reload the page after adding a folder to the ignored-list the Todo-Panel was not activated any more. I activated it via the checkbox in the panel selector and clicked "sticky". After saving the module's settings this setting was gone. Is this a bug? Or can I activate this panel in another way?

Thank you!

Hey @bernhard - glad you're enjoying it.

Clearing of Tracy cookie settings (like sticky selected panels) when saving the module settings is intentional: https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/commit/f26a46724f8d36b33a637835581128875b756e1e

The trouble is that I am not sure why I did it 🙂 I'll have to have a think about why I did this - I distinctly remember doing it for some reason but maybe that reason is no longer relevant due to other changes. I'll get back to you on this.

Of course you can enable the panel permanently in the config settings, but I am pretty sure that's not what you mean.

Some more keyboard shortcuts for the Console panel:

CTRL + SHFT + PageUp | One less line in code pane
CTRL + SHFT + PageDown | One more line in code pane

Unlike the other pane resizing shortcuts, these two save the position of the divider so that it will restore to this position after a page reload. This matches the behavior when you drag the divider with the mouse.

Hm. Somehow it didn't feel right to do it that way. But it's totally fine of course 🙂 I was just curious of the reason...

Apparently I have a compulsion for new keyboard shortcuts 🙂

Just added these:

SHFT + Enter Expand to fit all code and add new line (saves position)
SHFT + Backspace Contract to fit all code and remove line (saves position)

I have also modified the drag resizing to automatically snap to row heights.

Anyone have any thoughts for this new panel before I publish it?

image.png.4e26190fc373195aaadafd650b88e027.png


Pretty self-explanatory - it shows the status of the various permissions for the current page for all user roles. This should make it much easier to quickly check things if a client complains they don't have access to do a certain action on a specific page.

I'll probably commit tomorrow, but just wondering if you guys have any other ideas for this first.

Actually, I am now wondering if perhaps this should just be a new section in the RequestInfo panel, rather than a dedicated panel. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

For a task like this (wanting to check the a client's access RE a specific page), I'm thinking it would be more useful to actually see the permissions of that client in respect of the said page, rather than scrolling through a potentially long list of all roles (e.g. a large site). The difficulty I see is, obviously, the said client is not logged in when the admin is checking out the status ;-), so this may be wishful thinking. Just wondering...

Could the colours please, somewhere, match the current colour scheme of the other panels?

I'm 50/50 on this. If I was able to view a page, put a clients name or id in an input and Tracy returns the permission panel, I wouldn't mind it being separate.

 

Just my 2p.

Good idea adrian!

You might want to flip the table rows/columns?  roles listed horizontally, permissions listed vertically.  I was thinking that there will probably always be more permissions than roles.  I would rather scroll vertically than horizontally.

That is how Drupal's permission page works.  This shows it enhanced with the https://www.drupal.org/project/instantfilter module for instant permission filtering like the AdminOnSteriods module does in Processwire.

Another idea for you:

Would it be possible on the Dumps and Dumps Recorder panels to auto expand the dump if there is only 1 dump?  That way someone doesn't have to click the plus sign or arrow to open the dump every-time the page is refreshed?  Currently by default it is always collapsed.

No worries if you can't, just a suggestion.  Appreciate all you do.

Are you talking about a link to the docs or about shortcut links to the settings page of the template where the admin can adjust those permissions? The latter would be great! Maybe there could also be a section where it shows which template setting is responsible, eg:

path             | template     | active
-----------------|--------------|--------------------------------
/                | home         | yes
/foo             | basic-page   | yes
/foo/bar         | whatsoever   | no (inherited from basic-page)

The template strings could be linked to the access tab of the template settings.

Not sure how complicated that would be to implement, but I think it could be helpful 🙂 

+1 for some more thoughts on the colors! I think the red is too loud. It's not a warning imho - it's just telling there is no permission. I think the red could be removed completely. I'm fine with the green - although I think it could also be more quiet...

There is of course the User Switcher panel which I use the all the time to check issues a client is having - that's the best way to see the site the way they are seeing it.

I have just added a new row at the top of the table that shows the permissions for the current user (in this case "ajones"), so this is either you, or if you are using the UserSwitcher panel then it will obviously be for that user. Does that help with what you are looking for?

It is using the same colors as the other panels. The colors are all now defined as constants. in the main TracyDebugger class. I know it's a bit loud here, but the idea is for form over function in identifying which roles don't have a certain permission. That said, I'd also be ok with this if you guys prefer:

The key thing I think is that I know how many permissions there are and they easily fit on the width of the screen. I don't know how many roles there will be. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Not sure if I can because the script that handles the dump doesn't actually know how many dumps are coming, but maybe it can be done with JS after the fact - I'll take a look.

I'll need to think about this some more - I feel like we are starting to get into the territory of this module: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-access-overview/ which is not really the goal here, or at least it wasn't. I'll let you guys chime back in on what you think would actually be most useful.

Thanks again for all the feedback - greatly appreciated!

Of course! 😀. Shows you how precious little I know! The best I've been doing until recently is bd($foo, 'bar');! This week I started using the console, like seriously use it, yay! I've been blown away! Even a multi-line cursor! And bd() in the console! I was gonna ask @bernhard to recommend what else I should play with. I've been missing a lot!

So no custom permissions then?

Typically in the Console, you are better off using d() which dumps to the results panel below.

This isn't about permissions in the sense you are talking about. It's just for these page permissions:

https://github.com/processwire/processwire/blob/341342dc5b1c58012ae7cb26cffe2c57cd915552/wire/core/Page.php#L88-L107

Maybe it needs to be reimagined, but that was my initial goal for this. What does everyone think?

      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.
      Enjoy!
