format_exception fails if exception occured in child template of inheritance chain #71

bug Something isn't working low priority runtime

Migrated issue, originally created by Anonymous

Very strange behavior, but:




<%inherit file="base.htm" />

## should throw exception

Test1.htm stuff

import os
from mako.lookup import TemplateLookup
from mako.template import Template

l = TemplateLookup(directories=[os.getcwd(),])
t = Template(filename='test1.htm', lookup=l, format_exceptions=True)

print t.render()

As a result there will be 3 blank lines :). Expected: formatted error message.

Representable with 0.1.10 and latest trunk.

Problem is in your way of copying context. After Context._copy() copied instance will share all buffers and even buffer list with source Context. This can make a lot of hard-to-find errors. As this :).

mako.runtime, _exec_template(), 332 line:

context._buffer_stack = [util.StringIO()]

Here you overwrite buffer stack, but only for current context instance. And expect changes on all Contexts :).

c1 = Context()
c2 = Context()

c1._buffer_stack => list #1
c2._buffer_stack => list #1 (!)
c1._buffer_stack[0] => buff #1
c2._buffer_stack[0] => buff #1

c1._buffer_stack[0].getvalue() => 'asd' as expected

c2._buffer_stack = [StringIO]
c2._buffer_stack[0] => buff #2
c1._buffer_stack[0] => buff #1 (!!!)

In patch I had also changed the way buffers are created. At least this will allow multilingual template errors messages in the future ;). Also - use cStringIO ONLY for unicode (I mean use cStringIO if non-unicode encoding supplied).

If you dont want that much changes - to fix error problem you just need to replace
mako.runtime, _exec_template(), 332 line:

context._buffer_stack = [util.StringIO()]


while context._buffer_stack: del context._buffer_stack[0]

OK, sorry we can't change the constructor to Context here as it's public API that it takes a buffer as an argument. The FastEncodingBuffer is good enough to use for formatting exceptions in all cases. The context collection bug is fixed in d19ff8d, and the html_error_template() encoding is used with format_exceptions in 5214f0f. thanks for spotting this.
