Reporting which plugin has caused the error

based on the errors I get in the admin panel, I feel discourse can understand which plugin has caused the error. look at these errors e.g.

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'inlineBetween' of undefined Url: Line: 1 Col 

or this one:

 TypeError: Discourse.Dialect is undefined Url: Line: 1 Column: 42472 Window Location: 

in both of them it has pointed to a js file with a coded name (i.e. plugin-third-party-66034ae1bc6977c5ec45dcf7adb5f8f9799ab0ff261ffd958c9425a34a956605.js).

is it possible that the plugin name is also mentioned in the error log?


This would be great. As a possibly related thing, it would be nice if one plugin throwing a JS exception didn’t break other plugins.

I don’t know enough about how plugins are loaded to know whether that would be feasible though…

But it is… If you open that referenced JS file, you will see the very beginning starts with:


Surely that identifies the plugin well enough at just a click?

I never have thought about opening that link! :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

thanks for the hint.

My understanding is that the file linked contains the JavaScript for every plugin installed on the forum - Recommander just happens to be the first one in the file.

If you do a Ctrlf for define("discourse/plugins you’ll see many plugins.


Ah, oops, I guess that really only works in a dev environment.
