Overview

An exception class that keeps track of the line of the Sass template it was raised on and the Sass file that was being parsed (if applicable).

All Sass errors are raised as SyntaxErrors.

When dealing with SyntaxErrors, it's important to provide filename and line number information. This will be used in various error reports to users, including backtraces; see #sass_backtrace for details.

Some of this information is usually provided as part of the constructor. New backtrace entries can be added with #add_backtrace, which is called when an exception is raised between files (e.g. with @import).

Often, a chunk of code will all have similar backtrace information - the same filename or even line. It may also be useful to have a default line number set. In those situations, the default values can be used by omitting the information on the original exception, and then calling #modify_backtrace in a wrapper rescue. When doing this, be sure that all exceptions ultimately end up with the information filled in.

Instance Attribute Details

- (Aray<{Symbol => Object>}) sass_backtrace

The backtrace of the error within Sass files. This is an array of hashes containing information for a single entry. The hashes have the following keys:

:filename : The name of the file in which the exception was raised, or nil if no filename is available.

:mixin : The name of the mixin in which the exception was raised, or nil if it wasn't raised in a mixin.

:line : The line of the file on which the error occurred. Never nil.

This information is also included in standard backtrace format in the output of #backtrace.

Returns:

  • (Aray<{Symbol => Object>})

  • line_offset (Integer) (defaults to: 1)

    The number of the first line of the Sass template.

Returns:

  • (String)

    The error report

Instance Method Details

- add_backtrace(attrs)

Adds an entry to the exception's Sass backtrace.

Parameters:

  • attrs ({Symbol => Object})

    The information in the backtrace entry. See #sass_backtrace

# File '/home/nweiz/code/sass-site/.sass/lib/sass/error.rb', line 88

def add_backtrace(attrs)
  sass_backtrace << attrs.reject {|_k, v| v.nil?}
end

- (Array<String>) backtrace

Returns the standard exception backtrace, including the Sass backtrace.

Returns:

  • (Array<String>)

def backtrace
  return nil if super.nil?
  return super if sass_backtrace.all? {|h| h.empty?}
  sass_backtrace.map do |h|
    "#{h[:filename] || '(sass)'}:#{h[:line]}" +
      (h[:mixin] ? ":in `#{h[:mixin]}'" : "")
  end + super
end

- modify_backtrace(attrs)

Modify the top Sass backtrace entries (that is, the most deeply nested ones) to have the given attributes.

Specifically, this goes through the backtrace entries from most deeply nested to least, setting the given attributes for each entry. If an entry already has one of the given attributes set, the pre-existing attribute takes precedence and is not used for less deeply-nested entries (even if they don't have that attribute set).

Parameters:

  • attrs ({Symbol => Object})

    The information to add to the backtrace entry. See #sass_backtrace

def modify_backtrace(attrs)
  attrs = attrs.reject {|_k, v| v.nil?}
  # Move backwards through the backtrace
  (0...sass_backtrace.size).to_a.reverse_each do |i|
    entry = sass_backtrace[i]
    sass_backtrace[i] = attrs.merge(entry)
    attrs.reject! {|k, _v| entry.include?(k)}
    break if attrs.empty?
  end
end

- (String) sass_backtrace_str(default_filename = "an unknown file")

Returns a string representation of the Sass backtrace.

Parameters:

  • default_filename (String) (defaults to: "an unknown file")

    The filename to use for unknown files

Returns:

  • (String)
