Exceptionite 2 is a debugging screen package written by the Masonite team. Although written by the Masonite maintainer team, it can be used in Flask, Django and of course Masonite.
Starting in Masonite 4.9 this is the default debugging screen and it comes with a lot of amazing features.
- Detailed solutions for common or framework specific issues
- Easy to ready stack traces to see exactly which frames were hit
- Easily click any line in the stack trace to open that line in your editor
- Detailed environment and framework specific information
- Easily copy detailed information to quickly paste and share with your team or community.
Before we go into how to quickly install Exceptionite into your Django project I'd like to go over some notable features in a bit more detail.
Sometimes when you hit an exception and you can't figure it out you tend to go to people that can figure it out. Maybe these people are you coworkers or maybe they are a group inside a Discord server.
In the top right you can click the Share Error link:
This will open a popup where you can easily select the important information you want to be put on your clipboard so you can paste the info later:
You can copy this information either as "Raw" (just bullet points and text) or as markdown.
Another awesome part of Exceptionite is the ability to see solutions to your exception in the first place. This is like having someone over your shoulder giving you suggestions while you develop your application.
One of the amazing features is to click on a stack trace line and be able to open that line up directly in your editor to quickly start fixing
Thought this package couldn't get cool enough? It comes with a dark mode:
