JStack

This library automatically transforms haxe.CallStack.callStack(), haxe.CallStack.exceptionStack() and uncaught exceptions where possible to make them point at Haxe sources instead of generated js or php files. The only supported targets are js and php7 (as of 2017-02-24 you need latest development version of Haxe for php7 support).

Works only in debug mode or when -D JSTACK_FORCE. Does not affect your app if compiled without -debug and -D JSTACK_FORCE flags or to unsupported target.

2017-10-02 till Haxe 4 is released if you want to use JStack for php target with the latest development version of Haxe, add -D JSTACK_HAXE_DEV.

Installation

haxelib install jstack

Usage

Just add JStack to compilation with -lib jstack compiler flag.

Clickable positions in stack traces.

If your IDE supports clickable file links in app output, you can specify a pattern for call stack entries:

-D JSTACK_FORMAT=%symbol% at %file%:%line%
//or predefined pattern for VSCode
-D JSTACK_FORMAT=vscode
//or predefined pattern for IntelliJ IDEA
-D JSTACK_FORMAT=idea

Custom entry point

If you don't have -main in your build config, then you need to specify entry point like this:

-D JSTACK_MAIN=my.SomeClass.entryPoint

If you want an entry point to return a value, add -D JSTACK_ASYNC_ENTRY to compilation flags. It will switch JStack to loading sourcemap in background without blocking an entry point execution.

Avoiding process.exit on NodeJS

By default JStack invokes process.exit(1) on uncaught exceptions in NodeJS environment. Use -D JSTACK_NO_SHUTDOWN to prevent this behavior.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
