Tracy Debugger

Hi @Ivan Gretsky - the core Tracy package comes with the ability to drag the bar but I disabled it long ago because it was causing too many problems and I didn't really see many advantages. Perhaps you can solve the issue you are having with the "Starting z-index for panels" option in the module settings. If that doesn't work for you, let me know and we'll figure something else out.

Hi Adrian,
I would be happy to hear that you give another chance of the possibility to move the bar to the bottom left corner, optionally. Dragging it around is kinda pointless, at least in my point of view, but as I already explained it in the past, the bottom right corner can sometimes be problematic when Tracy interferes with something, and covering an interactive part of the site is not really a solution. However, it is very rare that both bottom corners contain interactive elements, so being able to pick which corner to cover would suffice most situations, I think.

Z-index does not solve the problem. Chat window is added with js and is always on top.

Another new version which takes care of an issue that has been lingering from the very first version 🙂

The option to send error messages to your email address when in Production mode now supports wireMail() so it will use whatever wireMail module you are using.

There is also a new module setting for defining the "from email" address, as well as the old "to email" option.

Remember that messages are only sent if the output mode in settings is set to Production and also note that you will only get one email - all subsequent errors will be logged in the Tracy logs files but won't be emailed until you clear the "sent email" flag.

It's sure nice to have this working as a way to track errors that occur on a production site during regular use.

Let me know if you find any problems.

Now I know why those emails often ended up in the spam folder... Thanks for the improvement!

Yeah, sorry about that - the Tracy core just uses PHP's mail() and I wasn't sure how to hook into the send process so I could implement wireMail - of course it turned out to be easy, but it wasn't documented so had to dig a little.

I found a CSS bug with Firefox:

The directory list panel in the file editor is not usable, i.e. you can't focus / click on any file or directory links. The three buttons at the bottom also don't work (test, save, restore backup). I can use the scrollbar, but only with dragging (mouse-scrollwheel doesn't work). The code-block works.

If I remove position: absolute from .tracy-filterbox-wrap everything works fine, but it breaks in Chrome.

I finally found that removing height: auto !important; from #tracyFileEditorFilterBoxWrap makes it work in both browsers.

(You already set a fixed height for .tracy-filterbox-wrap, but of course an ID CSS selector + !important are much stronger than a class)

Thanks @dragan for finding the problem and providing the fix - much appreciated. I have committed a new version with the fix.

PS - sorry about all the !important throughout that - it's quite a mess - it's difficult to override site frontend CSS as well as core Tracy CSS.

Thanks!

I feel bad for asking about another issue though... Since approx. 1-2 weeks I see frequent warnings like these popping up:

1996707894_Screenshot_2020-02-01PagesProcessWirefantastiquech.png.28d720ef7b33127159324586a6f2d86c.png

Frequently = several times during a backend session.

When I check the "clear email sent" checkbox and hit save, I get this error message:

1929031178_Screenshot_2020-02-01ModuleTracyDebuggerfantastiquech.png.83a14b85b36eb1d80f8de03cd245a12f.png

The checkbox stays un-checked after save.

Latest PW dev + last 2 or 3 TD versions.

Don't feel bad 🙂

The warning should show up when an error has been logged in production mode and the "email-sent" file exists under /assetes/logs/tracy/

There are two ways to clear it - via the link in the warning, or by checking that "clear email sent" checkbox in the module settings. If you do the first one, and then try the other, there will be nothing to delete.

Do you have the email fields filled out for getting emails about logged errors? Maybe I shouldn't show the warning if these aren't filled out because it isn't really relevant if you're not getting emails I suppose.

@adrian Both email fields are set.

That's what I would suggest too. It's just a bit irritating, that's all.

Sorry if this has been covered before - regarding the email sent flag - does it only block it for that same error, or would one receive new errors, even if the flag is not cleared? I don't see myself being able to clear flags that often - especially the errors I get everyday from ProCache on most sites.

@Macrura - it will only email one error of any type until the flag is cleared. This is Tracy core functionality, not something I added.

I guess if you want an email every time there is an error, I could have the flag cleared on every page load so the behavior is overridden. 

The other possibility is hooking up error logging to send errors to Slack or similar, instead of email - probably a friendlier approach if you are getting lots per day.

My question though, is why is ProCache giving so many errors?

Hi @adrian - thanks; I think i do get the recurring errors, but wasn't sure if the recent changes/version would change something; as i only saw the new flag clearing alerts on some recently updated sites, but i didn't read the changelog or anything yet. I don't want to cause you any extra work.

Been getting the same 2 errors from ProCache for years... i just delete them - those would be great if they could just be filtered out of error reporting!

PHP Warning: rename(/home/user/website.com/site/assets/ProCache-b1aa65c9cad10a45a4f5b53b7448/http404/index-website_com.html.tmp,/home/user/website.com/site/assets/ProCache-b1aa65c9cad10a45a4f5b53b7448/http404/index-website_com.html): No such file or directory in /home/user/website.com/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/ProCache/ProCache.module:1006

Ah - I just took a better look at the Tracy core and even though I don't see it documented anywhere, there is a $snooze time which means that after this time has expired, you'll get another email notification. The default is 2 days. Would it help you if this was configurable in the module settings?

Regarding filtering of certain errors - would you want those kept out of the Tracy error logs completely, or just not receive an email about them, but still log them? Not sure if I can easily do this. You could of course change the log severity settings so that no warnings logged, but that's probably not what you want.

cool, that's great to know! I don't need it configurable a this time, but maybe others can weigh in on opinions of having it configurable.

I can see a situation, ProCache for example, where there are recurring errors, but don't warrant any action; Not sure if it is possible to exclude notifications by some filter, but i think it would be nice to have at some point if it didn't present a huge amount of work; I have several sites that end up with say warnings or errors that are not adversely effecting anything, but at the same time i know they won't be able to be addressed for a while - it would be cool to be able to snooze those alerts by some interval, like x days/months..

thanks!

Hey @adrian just using the tracy console a lot gain for testing/developing a module. It's absolutely brilliant! Thx again!

Do you have an idea of a quick solution for having dumped objects always unfolded? This is what I'm doing:

uOM2RnA.png

I always have to unfold the object dump to see the results. For that I have to use the mouse - which is slow and tedious. If there where a checkbox "automatically unfold all dumps" it would speed up my process even more.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about this, thx. Maybe there is already an option somehwere?

Hey @bernhard - these are the two settings that control this: https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/blob/11582e03c22db697972a08dac0e01630b0dbcb79/includes/TD.php#L156-L157

I have hardcoded them to "1" so dumps are always collapsed, but I can certainly open them up for being modified. The normal way to do these sorts of tweaks with the Tracy core is to include those as part of the options array when calling the dump, but it's usually just too much typing and not worth the hassle, so need to come up with an easier way. No time to look into this today I'm afraid, but will do sometime soon. In the meantime, you can obviously change those for your current needs.

Thx, I'm done with my testing - asking earlier would have saved me some hundred clicks 😄 😛

$options[Dumper::COLLAPSE] = 14;
$options[Dumper::COLLAPSE_COUNT] = 7;

This worked well. It would be nice to have an option somewhere for this, but it is definitely not high priority, so don't hurry. Thx anyhow for taking it into account! 🙂

I  know this sounds crazy at first. I have a site which shows a very strange behaviour on the live server. The Site behaves normal as long as Tracy Debugger is ON. Response time is round about 200-300ms. As soon as I disable Tracy the response time grows to several seconds (6-7s !). Once the server answers, the rest of the assets deliver fast.
Ideas where to begin a research welcome 🙂

When you say "off", do you mean production mode, disabled "by unchecking the "Enable Tracy Debugger" checkbox, or is Tracy uninstalled?

If in production mode, do you have emailing of logged errors enabled? I am wondering if you have a slow connection to your email service (SMTP or API).

I tested both: Off can be "Enable Tracy Debugger" unchecked or uninstalling Tracy. Both leads to bad performance. If Tracy is enabled "Output Mode" can be "Production" or "Development". Both cases leads to normal operation. So maybe the question is what does Tracy change in the rendering process, when it is active.

      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.

      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.
      Screencasts
      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.
      Exclusions
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
