BugSack  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r272
by: Rabbit, Nevcairiel, Phanx
BugSack eases the process of capturing bugs.

It captures information about Lua errors that occurr during your play session, including the full debug stack. It aims to be invaluable to developers, and a useful tool for players that use beta-quality addons.

BugSack includes a DataBroker plugin that displays the last 5 errors in the tooltip. It can also bring up a frame to display all other errors for the current session, or for any other session. The text of the error can then be copied & pasted to a source outside of WoW (for example, the forums) so that other developers can determine what's at fault.

Errors can also be sent to another player who has BugSack installed, if you know someone that can help you interpret and resolve the errors in your interface.

Feedback

Please direct all bug reports and feature requests to the WowAce ticket tracker.

!BugGrabber

The addon has a hard dependency on !BugGrabber, which is the addon that actually grabs the bugs. !BugGrabber is intentionally kept small, and it does not use any libraries, to make sure that any errors in libraries do not mess up the system.

!BugGrabber is included in the release ZIP.

Credits

BugSack and !BugGrabber has been hacked on by many people since it was started, including but not limited to: Fritti, Rowne, Ramble, kergoth, Industrial, ckknight, Gamefaq, thomasmo, and damjau.

The current maintainer is Rabbit.

How do I make it show on FuBar a count of errors captured?

Might also be nice if it could make a sound when there's an error, a la ImprovedErrorFrame.

Both the sound and fubar counters are on by default.

If you have an instance of AceComm-2.0 available (from for example Cartographer), BugSack will now give you the option to send your session bugs to another user that also has AceComm-2.0+BugSack.

This makes it easy to get help from your local addon nut

I didn't see that option I was wondering if it was possible for the errors to be stored in a txt file so you can access them later to notifiy the UI creator?

Addons can not access any file on your harddrive except the SavedVariables file, so BugSack stores them there.

Take a look in WoW\WTF\Account\<account>\SavedVariables\!BugGrabber.lua

Hey Hey Hey,

So as of 3.0 this addon seems to load..my "Addons" on character select screen says it's loadable..but I don't see the minimap button I'd come to know & love..

Don't use Fubar..nor do I ever plan to..is the minimap button gone & only supported by Fubar now? o.O

Im having the same problem as the 4 others below me, can hear it but not see it at all
opened up !BugGrabber.lua and found the following line:
Code:
["message"] = "BugSack-3.0\\BugSack.lua:39: Cannot find a library instance of \"AceAddon-3.0\".\n!BugGrabber-2.2\\libs\\LibStub\\LibStub.lua:23: in function `LibStub'\nBugSack-3.0\\BugSack.lua:39: in main chunk\n\n  ---",
["type"] = "error",
["time"] = "2008/10/15 22:45:23",
["session"] = 61,
["counter"] = 1,
hope it helps!

/buggrabber

You can use the command /buggrabber in-game to show how many errors you have (for example 1-11 means you have 11 errors) and add a number after /buggrabber to show the error in the chat frame (for example /buggrabber 2). If /buggrabber fails, then it means you have no errors

Edit: most recent versions of BugSack and BugGrabber are on Curse (and on Wowace). It still doesn't show the icon on FuBar, but at least it doesn't give errors

No response from an author since 2007..odd this says "Updated for WoTLK" but it doesn't work properly..& doesn't appear to be actively supported..

IMHO ninja !Swatter from 1 of the auctioneer downloads: http://auctioneeraddon.com/

It works & has a nice flyer frame to open & view any erros or confirm there aren't any shown..

Bugsack is actively supported on WoWAce (http://www.wowace.com/projects/bugsack, http://www.wowace.com/projects/bug-grabber).
The icon missing from FuBar seems to be a more complex problem, because many other addons have the same issue (for example BigWigs, oRA2). To fix this you could use a data broker addon (for example StatBlockCore) or simply use Broker2FuBar.
