symbolicatecrash.orig Initial commit Sep 14, 2011


There's a great script called symbolicatecrash that is distributed with the iOS SDK. It works great for symbolicating iOS crash logs, but doesn't work at all for Mac crash logs.

All the script is doing is automating the process described here: http://www.red-sweater.com/blog/439/crappy-crash-logs

This version of the script is targeted specifically at Mac app crash logs. Usage is very similar to 'symbolicatecrash'.

symbolicatecrash-mac crashlog.crash path-to-dSYM

I hacked this together one night after getting annoyed at the lack of automatic symbolication for Mac crash logs. It's pretty crude and could do with improvements. I've completely stripped out the "spotlight searching" functionality present in the iOS version of the script.

Updated Status:
Also included is a GUI frontend for the script called Simba. Just drag your .dSYM and .crash onto Simba's dock icon, and it will present you with the symbolicated crash report.
