I'm adding the developer role to the superuser. That should still work though right? As superuser adopts all permissions anyway irrespective of if it has the developer role added.

It should work, although it's not quite that simple - that's why that line of code you pointed to uses a custom method for seeing if the superuser has the required permission. I just tested here - adding my editor role (which has the tracy-all-dev permission) to my superuser user and it works as expected still.

Any chance you could debug a little to see where it's failing? Either that, or is it possible to give me access to the admin of the site so I can take a look?

Thank you so much @adrian!!!

What was it in the end out of interest? Some issue with superuser and permissions or was I being daft?

All my fault - it actually was an issue with those checks on the line you pointed out. The difference on my test site was that even though I didn't have the tracy-home-dev permission checked, it was created so the conditional was returning true. On your site that permission didn't exist so it wasn't proceeding. The first check now also checks for the "all" version of that permission before checking if the current user has it.

@adrian Happy New Year!

I'm just attempting to get this set up again on a new installation and it doesn't appear to be working again. Same on the previous link I DM'd you. Running on the latest version of ProcessWire and Tracy Debugger. Are you noticing any issues?

@alexmercenary - is it an issue with tracy-all-dev permission again? I did actually make some other changes to that functionality 11 days ago - perhaps I broke something again - sorry if that's the case. Can you please confirm that is the problem you are referring to at the moment?

@adrian Yeah, that's the one. 

Sorry, I can't seem to duplicate that issue at the moment. I am testing with tracy-all-dev permission with no existing tracy-home-dev permission and looking at the home page and it's showing the home-dev.php template. Maybe you can give me access to the new site to take another look?

Thanks for the update @alexmercenary - be sure to also load up the Template Path panel when using the dev template option - it is a handy way to view what's being replaced on various pages/templates and I fixed a couple of issues with the "tracy-all-*" approach the other day so definitely worth looking at now.

I just upgraded TD, and now I see this Tracy error on every page (FE + BE):

I've deleted the assets/cache/ folder several times, refreshed modules etc., but the error persists.

I don't know if it matters, but I've upgraded Tracy with Module Toolkit (only discovered and used for 1-2 days, and so far working flawlessly).

Other infos:

ProcessWire: 3.0.147
PHP: 7.2.19
Webserver: Apache/2.4.35 (Win64) OpenSSL/1.1.1b
MySQL: 5.7.24

@adrian Thanks! I guess I found it myself...

My IDE was complaining that $owner was not defined in site/modules/TracyDebugger/panels/RequestInfoPanel.php line 596, so I added $owner = null; in line 551
i.e. before if(function_exists('posix_getpwuid')) {

Before that, I also removed phpstorm://open?file=%file&line=%line from the protocol handler in TD config (I never got it to work anyhow; probably a stupid Windows issue...)

Not sure if the var init fix is a clever or stupid thing, but at least the errors are now gone.

There are several Windows users who have it working, including @bernhard - there are posts above that detail a few different ways of getting it to work and also some more info on the docs site - I'm honestly not sure what is best.

There's more than one way to skin a cat. Anyway the current version fixes it as well, just in a different way.

Just added a new Viewports panel based on a suggestion by @bernhard in response to this post: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22617-sizzy-browser-developer-tool/

It's pretty basic, but gives you a quick and easy way to view and interact with your site at multiple screen viewport sizes all on the one page (panel) just by scrolling down.

Currently there are 6 fixed sizes, but I can expand on these or make them configurable if you'd li

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Hi @adrian,

I'm running 4.20 on localhost and production sites. I get the following error:

I've not had any issues before so I'm thinking I may have something misconfigured. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi @rick - I'm not sure why that would happen but it would be helpful if you could dump the content of $data before line 449 in WireCache.php so we can see what is being passed to json_encode so we can see why it might be failing. You could/should probably also check the value of $logLinesData before line 44 in ProcesswireLogsPanel.php

Please let me know what you find out.

The same format (slightly different values) are displayed prior to line 44.

I'm using VSCode as my IDE. It indicates two errors in ProcesswireLogsPanel.php: 

//line 44:
$this->wire('cache')->save('TracyLogData.ProcessWire', $logLinesData, WireCache::expireNever); // Undefined Type WireCache

//line 86:
$logInstance = new FileLog($this->wire('config')->paths->logs . $item['log'].'.txt'); // Undefined Type FileLog

Thanks @rick - don't worry about those VSCode reported errors - it just doesn't know about those classes, but they work as expected.

I think it's likely that you have some non-escaped character or a character encoding issue in your log files that is causing the problem. 

Could try a mb_convert_encoding() on $logLinesData before it is sent to WireCache on line 44. 

If that doesn't work, maybe instead try utf8_encode() or  htmlentities() or something else along those lines.

There is this old topic: 

 but I don't think it will help us much here.

Thanks @adrian. I dev null'd all the log files and now the issue is gone. lol

Glad that worked but I expect it will likely come back for you so it would be good to figure out what the fix will be. Please keep an eye out for it again.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      File Manager for ProcessWire is a module to manager files and folders from the CMS backend. It supports creating, deleting, renaming, packing, unpacking, uploading, downloading and editing of files and folders. The integrated code editor ACE supports highlighting of all common programming languages.

      This module is probably the most powerful module. You might destroy your processwire installation if you don't exactly know what you doing. Be careful and use it at your own risk!
      ACE code editor
      This module uses ACE code editor available from: https://github.com/ajaxorg/ace

      This module uses the JavaScript dragscroll available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability to drag the table horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      PHP File Manager
      This module uses a modified version of PHP File Manager available from: https://github.com/alexantr/filemanager

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.
      Create an account
      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
