Debugging Weblate

Weblate is just a software and it can contain bugs. The bugs can behave as application crashes or as a misbehavior. You are welcome to collect information on the issue and submit it to our issue tracker.

Analyzing application crashes

In case application crashes, it is useful to collect as much information about the crash as possible. The easiest way to achieve this is by using third party services which can collect such information automatically. You can find information how to set this up in Collecting error reports.

Silent failures

Lot of tasks are offloaded to Celery for background processing. In case of failure those are not shown in the user interface, but appear in the Celery logs. Configuring Collecting error reports will help you to notice such failures easier.

Performance issues

In case Weblate preforms badly in some situation, please collect relevant logs showing the issue and which might help figuring out where our code might be improved.

In case some requests are taking too long without any indication, you might want to install dogslow <> together with Collecting error reports and get detailed traceback of problematic places in the error collection tool.
