Some of you might remember our good old crash reporter, it was a nice tool. But maintaining the server part was not so nice. So, when I was planning to resurrect the server part I asked myself; why? Can’t this just be done on the user side?
So, I dropped our existing crash parser (stackwalker) and just made a simple library that parses crash dumps locally (if symbols are present) and outputs it in plain text.
Now when you get the crash dialog you will see the actual crash and be able to submit it to GitHub directly.
See video for working example (on Linux): https://youtu.be/NSpP3UYoDtw
Note, this is just something I have done locally on my computer (not submitted to Natron), I’m open for suggestions etc.
