Easy way to track exceptions and warnings in your rails app
It's still just a skeleton. More description and documentation will come.. one day.. I guess.
THIS IS AN EARLY DEVELOPMENT VERSION, DO NOT EVEN TOUCH PRODUCTION SERVER WITH IT. Actually, it is so unmature that even playing with it can make you sad. And no one likes to be sad.
I hope it to work with rails 2.x and 3, currently I'm testing it only on rails 3.
INSTALATION AND USAGE
in your Gemfile. By default it will use your database to store error logs. Automagically table error_logs is going to be created, and all unhandled controller exceptions will end up there by default (displaying your 500 page as normal).
Generate yourself some empty controller (say error_logs) and put this line inside:
You can use it now to browse exceptions. It is your responsibility to make this controller secure and unaccessible by others.
There's also one global method catch_error that you can use to.. catch errors.
catch_error do # some stuff that may cause problems end
catch_error('page parsing', :level => :fatal) do raise "tangled cables" end
To be continued.
alternative errors storage (for database failures, probably sqlite will do)
better params viewing (currently only example params)
setting error level threshold while browsing
better look (themes would be good, but I really do not like css, so help needed)
adding errors to ignore list
pagination could by nice ;) (it ain't actually so bad without it thanks to grouping)
clickable backtraces? we could try showing some code
rails 2.x compatibility
svn & other vcs support
Ideas, opinions and contributions are extrememly welcome.
