#24119 closed Bug (fixed)

Backend-agnostic tracebacks on template rendering errors

Currently ExceptionReporter.get_traceback_data() contains a special case for exceptions raised during template rendering.

If the exception has a django_template_source attribute, which is set by the Debug variants of the Django template language's classes, information is gathered by ExceptionReporter.get_template_exception_info()

This logic should be embedded in the template engine. Third-part engines should have access to similar functionality through a public API.

Since this ticket describes a new feature and wasn't implemented before 1.8 alpha, it will make it into 1.9 at best. Jinja2 doesn't need it because it integrates with Python's native traceback system. Unfortunately, having only one use case makes it hard to validate a generic system.

I've worked to address part of this issue in:

Instead of setting django_template_source on exceptions and then having the debug view call ExceptionReporter.get_template_exception_info(), all exception info is provided by the engine as Exception.template_debug.

Any other engine can now show the same type of rendering traceback by supplying a template_debug attribute. This is a generic dictionary with values like line, source_lines, start, end, etc.

This is a lot less obtrusive than the existing implementation. Django is able to provide this information by catching errors in only two spots--one for parsing and one for rendering.
