Tracy Debugger

Recommended Posts

Hey @bernhard and anyone else who might be interested. Following up on my thoughts over here: 

Here's my first test:

cN2HuqqpHQ.gif.2dd012031f190c034de37754f9aaa2f0.gif

 

This comes from a new file which currently contains:

var getCodeSnippets = function() {
    return [
        {
          content: 'd(\\$pages->find("template=\${1:basic-page}")->each("\${2:title}"));',
          name: 'find-pages',
          tabTrigger: 'pwfind'
        }
    ]
};

 

I feel like there needs to be some thought put into how these should work and what the tabTrigger text should be. As you can see this one is about directly d() 'ing, but I am not sure whether it would be more versatile without that wrapping d(). Perhaps we could have both versions?

Maybe we also want something that simply returns:

foreach($pages->find("template=basic-page") as $p) {
    d($p);
}

 

I am really not sure what approach to take here.

Also, do you guys want to contribute snippets to the Tracy core, or would you prefer being able to define your own in a file or in the config settings?

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Wouldn`t defining your own in a file or in the config settings not be more versatile ? e.g. cross editor compatible

Sorry, not sure I understand how this makes things cross editor compatible. 

Honestly I think that all these should probably be in the core. After-all we have the actual snippets panel for you to define and use your own custom ones that others may not find useful.

ACE also comes with a bunch of predefined PHP snippets.

This will all be available in the next release of Tracy.

Maybe tracy could even be built a little differently to support 3rd party modules. Just like you did recently with the admin actions module (https://processwire.com/talk/topic/14921-admin-actions/?do=findComment&comment=173496). I'm not requesting this, I'm just thinking out loud here.

Hey @bernhard - sorry I forgot to respond to this before. This is certainly a possibility if there is demand. The advantage of course is that panel authors can maintain the codebase for their panel completely without relying on me to handle PRs etc. The downside is that new Tracy users needs to hunt around to find third-party panels so if we take this approach we'll want to make sure to list them all on a dedicated page on the docs site.

Let me know if anyone out there is interested in this.

OK, just released a major new version: 4.12.0

 

1) New Title/View link in Dump tabs, so ID is edit link and title/name is view link

image.png.4e3e74a1eccf862d03727692811409e6.png

 

2) New PagePermissions section added to PW Info panel:

image.png.e67e362f0c591f22edc76a11e9600723.png

 

3) New PHP and custom PW autocomplete snippets added to the Console and File Editor panels. Here's one example, but there are others in the posts prior to this one showing general PHP snippets.

Currently there are two custom PW snippets: pwforeach and pwfind - I'd love to hear what you guys want to see here. If you have new snippet ideas, please take a look at: https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/blob/master/scripts/code-snippets.js and feel free to send PRs with new additions.

UPmNZ6c7kf.gif.d0b9e73ed018e3e68fff9876f1e89159.gif

 

4) Ability to dynamically resize the font in the Console and File Editor panels with:

Increase: CTRL + +/=
Decrease: CTRL + -/_
Reset: CTRL + 0

 

5) Changes to the way the Console panel divs are structured and resized - please let me know if you see any issues with the results panel protruding beyond the bottom of the panel or any other issues. It's still not perfect, but it's breaking my brain 🙂

 

6) Some minor Tracy core updates and also general cleanup of many of the custom panels.

 

Please let me know if you have any problems with this new version, or ideas for improvements!

Great additions as always! Thanks for the tutorial on building panels, I'll try that when I have an idea for something 🙂

IMHO the best would be to have one shared file in the core and one file specific to each user, because habits are different so I think not all snippets will be helpful to everybody. On the other side it would be great (not to say necessary) to be able to define those snippets somewhere shared across multiple installs of tracy, so that we always have all our snippets available.

I think the best option would be to define a web-url (eg github snippet url to a raw file) and pull this file into the pw cache regularly. Everybody could then just push a new snippet to his git account (or on his webserver) and all tracy installations referencing this file would always be up to date with this file.

If you are happy with that idea I can try to implement that feature and do a PR

I was actually thinking along those lines as well, but I do want to encourage PRs to main file that comes with Tracy as well.

But yeah if you want to add support for pointing to a Github gist URL, or any other URL I suppose, I think that would be a nice addition.

I think we should be careful with those snippets. One might find a snippet helpful, another one might find it annoying. If we bloat tracy with snippets it might be counterproductive. I'll see when I find time to dig into that!

Ok, I have implemented the ability to link to your own custom snippets file:

image.thumb.png.8034531982094be4c2829ecdd88a205d.png

If you're using a Github Gist, make sure you use the https://rawgit.com/ service because the raw file from Github is served without the correct mime type and won't work. 

The format of the custom snippet file is like this. Note the getCustomCodeSnippets() compared with the core snippets file which uses getCodeSnippets()

var getCustomCodeSnippets = function() {
    return [
        {
          name: "pwfind",
          content: "d(\\$pages->find(\"template=\${1:basic-page}\")->each(\"\${2:title}\"));",
          tabTrigger: "pwfind"
        },
        {
          name: "pwforeach",
          content: "foreach(\\$pages->find(\"template=\${1:basic-page}\") as \\$p) {\n\td(\\$p);\n}",
          tabTrigger: "pwforeach"
        }
    ]
};

At the moment the custom snippets file is PHP only. I don't think we will ever need other languages for this.


I have also added in the ACE core snippet files for other web related languages so if you use the File Editor panel for JS, CSS, etc, there will now be a bunch of useful snippets for those languages as well.

If you want to peruse the available ACE core snippets, the best way is probably here: https://github.com/ajaxorg/ace/blob/master/lib/ace/snippets/php.snippets 

You can also check out the snippets for other languages in the parent folder of that file.

To be honest, I would not care too much about it (I guess). I'll have to think of it during further usage of the console. If you implement them, then I'd suggest you implement them in a way that they pull the current api and are always up to date (no idea how hard that would be). Otherwise you'd get plenty of requests to keep everything up to date, I'm afraid. But maybe others think differently...

What annoys me, though, are suggestions like this:

Would it be somehow possible to prevent those suggestions of php functions when I actually want to access an object property/method? Thx

Yeah, already done on my dev copy - all PW variables are automatically added to the autocomplete.

Agreed - I am working on this - I don't necessarily want to disable php autocompletions completely, but trying to tweak the triggering so it's not invasive when you don't want it.

Or perhaps this is even cleaner for the plain PW variables when they are not actually snippets:

Also just got this working, all generated automatically from the currently PW install, so it's always up-to-date.

Do you guys think you'd make use of this?

I agree with Bernhard there. The editor should focus on basic and speed. I think that is what is most loved when editing code.

I noticed that this editor has much lesser lag compared to other editors I use who update edited code through ftp. I like the update speed of this editor when you click on save. I also like that it shows hidden formats like empty space and new line to spot any other format that might got in when copying and pasting code from your own snippets.

The Increase: CTRL + works very nice to increase editors font size.

Also like it a lot that the editors window can sticky float anywhere in the backend window.

I saw it in action when I was editing some css. I even noticed a little red box with a white cross that indicates typos made when editing. That is just great.

I have been looking a bit for the css where I could change the background of the editor. I assume it is inside the style.css in the module folder. Would also like to style <?php and ?> in blue and bold.

Agreed - I don't want either the Console panel or FileEditor panel to slow down at all - I'll make sure that any autocomplete/snippet stuff I add doesn't cause any slowdown.

Glad that in general you enjoy using these tools.

The best way to change the editor color is to use the built in themes. I actually haven't included any other themes with the Tracy package, but I could easily add these and create a new module config setting so you can choose the theme - there are a lot of options - check out the kitchen sink demo (https://ace.c9.io/build/kitchen-sink.html) and try out the Theme dropdown.

Hi,

I have been fiddling around in the ace-editor folder inside the TracyDebugger module folder
to find a way to change the theme and font size, but without success.

In the kitchen-sink, for the TracyDebugger editor, how can I change the theme-tomorrow_night into IPlastic with font-size 17 ?

I haven't packaged the other themes with Tracy yet, but I can do so if you guys are interested. I initially went with just one theme (my favorite) because I wasn't sure how much use the Console and File Editor panels would get, but given their popularity I think it probably makes sense to include all the themes so you guys can choose what you prefer.

I guess the next question is to figure out whether you guys want to be able to adjust all ACE editor settings via a textarea with key:value pairs or whether I should provide the key settings I think you might want to adjust as dedicated fields in the module settings like I have with the tab size, type and show invisibles settings. What does everyone think?

Is this going too far having the doc comment displayed? It's a good learning tool. Maybe make it optional, or do you guys think just leave it out completely?

The TracyDebugger editor can sticky float anywhere and has a full screen toggle which makes it very practical,
so I guess more people are going to pick it up.
Would be nice to have a few themes because everybody experiences different colors as hard colors for the eyes to work with.
Is it difficult to port an Ace theme to TracyDebugger ? Maybe I can help with something ?

It doesn't look like they are massive (size), so, maybe yes, one or two more. I'm happy with the dark theme, so I am biased 🙂.

I think Kongondo has a point there. To prevent bloat creeping in, maybe it would be an idea to leave it up to the user which theme to get inside the ace-editor folder ?

In the ace-editor folder I noticed the file: theme-tomorrow_night.js

Just the possibility to let users change this file manually into another one e.g. theme-iplastic.js, and also manually edit font size, maybe that would be a bloat free solution ?

      I've created a small module which lets you define a timestamp after which a page should be accessible. In addition you can define a timestamp when the release should end and the page should not be accessable any more.
      Github: https://github.com/Sebiworld/PageAccessReleasetime
      Usage
      PageAccessReleasetime can be installed like every other module in ProcessWire. Check the following guide for detailed information: How-To Install or Uninstall Modules
      After that, you will find checkboxes for activating the releasetime-fields at the settings-tab of each page. You don't need to add the fields to your templates manually.
      Check e.g. the checkbox "Activate Releasetime from?" and fill in a date in the future. The page will not be accessable for your users until the given date is reached.
      If you have $config->pagefileSecure = true, the module will protect files of unreleased pages as well.
      How it works
      This module hooks into Page::viewable to prevent users to access unreleased pages:
      public function hookPageViewable($event) { $page = $event->object; $viewable = $event->return; if($viewable){ // If the page would be viewable, additionally check Releasetime and User-Permission $viewable = $this->canUserSee($page); } $event->return = $viewable; } To prevent access to the files of unreleased pages, we hook into Page::isPublic and ProcessPageView::sendFile.
      public function hookPageIsPublic($e) { $page = $e->object; if($e->return && $this->isReleaseTimeSet($page)) { $e->return = false; } } The site/assets/files/ directory of pages, which isPublic() returns false, will get a '-' as prefix. This indicates ProcessWire (with activated $config->pagefileSecure) to check the file's permissions via PHP before delivering it to the client.
      The check wether a not-public file should be accessable happens in ProcessPageView::sendFile. We throw an 404 Exception if the current user must not see the file.
      public function hookProcessPageViewSendFile($e) { $page = $e->arguments[0]; if(!$this->canUserSee($page)) { throw new Wire404Exception('File not found'); } } Additionally we hook into ProcessPageEdit::buildForm to add the PageAccessReleasetime fields to each page and move them to the settings tab.
      Limitations
      In the current version, releasetime-protected pages will appear in wire('pages')->find() queries. If you want to display a list of pages, where pages could be releasetime-protected, you should double-check with $page->viewable() wether the page can be accessed. $page->viewable() returns false, if the page is not released yet.
      If you have an idea how unreleased pages can be filtered out of ProcessWire selector queries, feel free to write an issue, comment or make a pull request!

      Thanks to the great Pro module "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use this module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      With this proof of concept I have created a module which adds the feature to copy a repeater item to the clipboard so that you can paste this item to another page with the same repeater field. The module has been developed very rudimentarily so far. It is currently not possible to copy nested items. There is also no check of Min/Max. You can also only copy items that have the same field on different pages. And surely you can solve all this more elegantly with AJAX. But personally I lack the deeper understanding of the repeaters. Also missing on the Javascript side are event triggers for the repeaters, which would make it easier. Like e.g. RepeaterItemInitReady or similar.
      it would be great if @ryan would implement this functionality in the core of RepeaterMatrix. I think he has better ways to implement this. Or what do you think, Ryan?
      Everybody is welcome to work on this module and improve it, if it should not be integrated into the matrix core. Therefore I put it for testing and as download on GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDublicate
      You can best see the functionality in the screencast:

      Hi,
      Please take a look at this:
      https://templatemag.com/demo/Good/
      The upper nav bar, including dropdowns like "pages" and "portfolios", what do you call this whole thing? At first I guess it's called "dropdown nav bar", but seems not.
      AND of course, what's the simplest way/module to achieve this in PW?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey, I'm new and I created a simple module for tagging pages because I didn't found a module for it (sadly this is not a core feature). This module is licensed under the GPL3 and cames with absolutly no warranty at all. You should test the module before using it in production environments. Currently it's an alpha release. if you like the module or have ideas for improvements feel free to post a comment. Currently this fieldtype is only compatible with the Inputfield I've created to because I haven't found  an Inputfield yet, that returns arrays from a single html input.

      Background
      I'm creating a module to integrate https://pushalert.co/ into ProcessWire. You actually don't even need a module. You could just use the "Other Websites" javascript provided by PushAlert for basic functionality, ie send a broadcast notification to all subscribers. This is essentially what all the other integrations, including WordPress, do. The WP integration installs a widget with a form enabling the admin to enter details such as title, message, etc from a blog post. It does not:
      collect any statistics within the CMS about the notification enable audience fine tuning to eg a particular subscriber or subscriber segment within WP. The admin needs to use the PA dashboard for that functionality PushAlert has a javascript and REST API. It's intended that this module will use both. https://pushalert.co/documentation 
      What my module does so far:
      associate a subscription with a user. FE user clicks a button on the website front end to subscribe and/or agrees to the browser popup to accept notifications from this site send broadcast push alerts from a page within admin It doesn't have a 'widget' but easy enough to create a fieldsetpage with the relevant fields and add that fs page to any appropriate templates, then with a hook, send the notification. Need to be careful that once published/sent, the notification is not automatically re-sent on subsequent page edits.
      Looking for help/collaboration on how best:
      to send a notification, eg from a blog post, then track the statistics. Dilemma is that the push notification must come from the admin page. Responses go to the sending page which, as it's an admin page, is restricted and will not accept the https response. This is where the other CMS integrations stop. The only json response from PushAlert is the status, eg 'success', and the notification id. There is no opportunity at this point to capture the sending page id. handle, 'once sent on page publish', do not automatically resend on future page edits Am thinking along the lines that FS Page will have a @kongondo runtime markup field https://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/ to pull the stats from PushAlert. Every time an admin visits the page, the stats will update.
      Once an admin checks the 'Send notification on page publish' checkbox, a hook creates new front end page that records the 'sender page', sends the notification request to PA, which then uses that newly created frontend page, as the response endpoint. Another rook re-associates the front end page with the admin page (eg blog post), to update the stats.
      Potential use cases:
      Notify individual and/or users with a particular role of an event, eg "New work opportunity" for job seekers; new blog post published; entries now open, etc...
      Looking for help/ideas/collaboration on this module. Please let me know if you're interested and as I do, believe this would be a great addition to ProcessWire
