node-raw-stacktraces

Get raw stack traces when errors are thrown.

Optionally customize the format of stack traces.

Build Status

How it works

node-raw-stacktrace works by hooking into v8's prepareStackTrace call. v8 calls this function when code accesses the Error.stack property to render it to a string.

This means that Error.stack needs to be accessed or events will not be emitted. Usually this is not an issue if it gets logged to a file or stdout, but it's something to keep in mind.

methods

var raw = require('raw-stacktrace');

var traces = raw(opts={})

Return an EventEmitter that emits an array of either raw or formatted CallSites. You can read about v8's CallSite API here

opts may contain:

  • rawCallSites: true if you just want the raw array of callsites, defaults to false. When false, the callsites are formatted to objects.

  • formatter: [optional] a function(err, callsites) that formats stack traces, usually returns a string but it doesn't have to.

Example

var raw = require('raw-stacktrace');
var traces = raw();

traces.on("trace", function(err, callsites){
  console.log(callsites[0]);
});

traces.formatter(function(err, callsites){
  return "custom stack trace output";
});

(function testError(){ 
  throw new Error("test");
}).bind({ context: "someContext" })();

Output

{ this: { context: 'someContext' },
  type: 'Object',
  isTop: false,
  isEval: false,
  origin: '/Users/jb55/src/js/node-raw-stacktrace/example.js',
  script: '/Users/jb55/src/js/node-raw-stacktrace/example.js',
  fun: [Function: testError],
  name: 'testError',
  method: null,
  path: '/Users/jb55/src/js/node-raw-stacktrace/example.js',
  line: 11,
  col: 9,
  isNative: false,
  pos: 277,
  isCtor: false,

  toJSON: [Function: toJSON] }
custom stack trace output

Adding callsites to the Error object

var raw = require('raw-stacktrace');
var traces = raw();

traces.on("trace", function(err, callsites){
  err.callsites = callsites;
});
