Tracy Debugger

Interesting feature though not sure if I would ever use it.

Btw, having no access to the remote files, how would you know the line numbers? :)

You'd know the line numbers from any error messages that Tracy has reported.

You can of course always enter line #1 for some scenarios. Maybe it would be nice if I had a trigger for inserting at the last line as well?

But, agreed it is probably a little obscure as a feature - I'll see how much I end up using it and see if others find a use for it.

The Editor Protocol Handler would be great, but I have problems with escaped characters like / as %2F. The links look like this:

openineclipse://open?url=file://%2FLibrary%2FWebServer%2FDocuments%2Fpw25%2Fsite%2Ftemplates%2Fhome.php&line=25

But in Safari at least this doesn't work if I don't change each "%2F" to "/".  How could I change the links to be like:

openineclipse://open?url=file:///Library/WebServer/Documents/pw25/site/templates/home.php&line=25

or get Safari or Chrome understand 

I found help on defining the Editor Protocol Handler for Eclipse "openineclipse" on this page: http://teleyag.com/blog/2011/08/19/openineclipse-url-scheme-for-mac/

I managed to fix this problem and now I have the Editor Protocol Handler working with Eclipse. Here comes what I did:

I followed the document here: http://teleyag.com/blog/2011/08/19/openineclipse-url-scheme-for-mac/

The only change was to fix that urlencoding problem above with the following AppleScript change. On line 6 I added: 

set this_URL to replace_chars(this_URL, "%2F", "/")

 
And in the end of the script this function for replace_chars:
 
on replace_chars(this_text, search_string, replacement_string)

    set AppleScript's text item delimiters to the search_string

    set the item_list to every text item of this_text

    set AppleScript's text item delimiters to the replacement_string

    set this_text to the item_list as string

    set AppleScript's text item delimiters to ""

    return this_text

end replace_chars

I got an issue with ajax submitting forms & Tracy. The module is always adding itself to the page, though my intention is to have a json_encoded string as the only response.

Now I got this:


"Thank you for contacting us!"

(.. tracy code here ...)

The reason could be that $config->ajax validates to false because I'm using pure JS instead of jQuery. With jQuery there's no Tracy code appearing. So unfortunately using $config->ajax to decide ajax mode wouldn't help here.

Thanks, that solved it. I remember seeing that header in the jQuery request but haven't try adding manually.

That's the corresponding part if anyone needs:

request.setRequestHeader('X-Requested-With', 'XMLHttpRequest');

Thanks for the report @tpr and for the solution @LostKobrakai. 

Sorry, I am on the road at the moment (mostly vacation) and so my response time could be several days.

It sounds like you have everything working as needed at the moment, but let me know if you think that perhaps Tracy needs to handle this better.

Not the same thing I know, but the latest version of Tracy (the core project) now provides details on ajax requests - might be coming soon to this module, but there is a PHP 5.4.4 requirement, so might have to wait until PW drops 5.3 support.

Isn't it possible to bundle two versions of Tracy and use the one appropriate? Too much work maybe?

Might be an option. I'll have a play with the new ajax stuff in the latest version of Tracy and see if it's worth it.

Adrian,

Many thanks for this debugger. It. Is. Fantastic!

Could I request the xdebug integration, please.

Thanks for the kudos - and yes, I will look into adding that Xdebug helper module (https://componette.com/jsmitka/nette-xdebug-helper/).

There is actually another one that I didn't mention in the post: https://componette.com/milo/xdebugtracepanel/ which is for showing Xdebug traces in a Tracy panel - it is currently abandoned, but the author says he is working on a new version, but not sure on  the status of that.

I should have thought that you are also working while traveling :) Thanks again for one of the most useful modules and for the blog post as well!

I shouldn't be, and I am not really - I was just silly enough to check my email the other day and saw a request from Ryan for a blog post. I am actually away on an extended trip, so I don' really mind :)

Hi everyone,

New version just committed. It comes packaged with both stable (2.3.10 - what it was using before) and master (2.4 dev) versions of Tracy. If you have PHP 5.4.4+ it will use the master/dev version which among other improvements, adds support for monitoring of, and allowing dumping from, AJAX calls. 

One quick way to see the AJAX monitoring in effect is to check "Backend" under the "Show Debug Bar" config option. Then hover over the PW menu in the admin to one of the AJAX-driven submenus - notice the new row in the debug bar showing the time etc for the AJAX request. You'll also see this popup when clicking on the Children tab when editing a page, and several other places throughout the PW admin. Of course this will also work for any AJAX requests on the front-end of you site.

Here's a screenshot showing both rows (normal and ajax) with the Dumps panels for both. I have two bd() calls - one "classic" and one via "ajax".

Please let me know if you notice any issues with this new version.

Try setting Mode to DEVELOPMENT or check Superuser force dev mode.

It shown up now, by setting to development mode instead of detect mode

Is it possible that you are using it on a live site or at least a publicly accessible server and not your local machine?

hi adrian,

what do you think about integrating a w3 validator into the tracy bar?

post-2137-0-44078300-1460140983_thumb.gi

i was thinking about implementing this as a little module, but i think it would even be better to have this as an option built into tracy. or is it a gain a feature that's already covered anywhere? :)

Browser extensions? I'm not sure if this feature is worth a (sub)module, unless it provides some benefits over them.

 Hey @bernhard - thanks for the suggestion, but I think I agree with @tpr here - this might be better handled buy a browser extension. It's funny really I used to be obsessed with having perfectly validating pages, but then it seemed that for a while there (as HTML5 was becoming more usable) that validators weren't keeping up so I stopped using one. Now the only time I use one is for validation of XML.

 
That said, if others think that it would be a useful addition to Tracy, I'd be willing - after-all, if you don't want to use it, just disable the panel and nothing will be loaded.
 
Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Although in the case of real projects I find it nearly impossible to produce HTML output that is considered to be valid by the W3 validator, I think it is a good idea to have a quick look so that anything considered to be a bug (say not closed elements) can be quickly identified. So I support the idea.

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:

      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)

      Update 31.7.2019: AdminBar is now maintained by @teppo. Modules directory entry has been updated, as well as the "grab the code" link below.
      ***
      Latest screencast: http://www.screencas...73-ab3ba1fea30c
      Grab the code: https://github.com/teppokoivula/AdminBar
      ***
      I put this Adminbar thingy (from here: http://processwire.c...topic,50.0.html) to modules section and to it's own topic.
      I recorded quick and messy screencast (really, my first screencast ever) to show what I have made so far. You can see it from here: http://www.screencas...18-1bc0d49841b4
      When the modal goes off, I click on the "dark side". I make it so fast on screencast, so it might seem a little bit confusing. Current way is, that you can edit, go back to see the site (without saving anything), continue editing and save. After that you still have the edit window, but if you click "dark side" after saving, then the whole page will be reloaded and you see new edits live.
      I am not sure if that is best way: there are some strengths in this thinking, but it is probably better that after saving there shouldn't be a possibility to continue editing. It might confuse because then if you make edits, click on dark side -> *page refresh* -> You lose your edits.
      ***
      When I get my "starting module" from Ryan, I will turn this into real module. Now I had to make some little tweaks to ProcessPageEdit.module (to keep modal after form submits). These probably won't hurt anything:
      if($this->redirectUrl) $this->session->redirect($this->redirectUrl); if(!empty($_GET['modal'])) $this->session->redirect("./?id={$this->page->id}&modal=true"); // NEW LINE else $this->session->redirect("./?id={$this->page->id}");   and...
      if(!empty($_GET['modal'])) { $form->attr('action', './?id=' . $this->id . '&modal=true'); } else { $form->attr('action', './?id=' . $this->id); // OLD LINE }

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.54
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      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! :)
