by karani

Error reporting is a fundamental aspect of the development process when working with the Frappe Framework and ERPNext. As a developer, encountering errors is not a matter of “if” but “when.” How you handle these errors can significantly impact your efficiency and the overall quality of your projects. In this concise guide, we’ll delve into the how of error reporting within the context of Frappe Framework and ERPNext development.

Like any other python powered application, Frappe applications track errors through logging. Logging is an indispensable tool for diagnosing and resolving errors. Implement detailed logging throughout your codebase, using appropriate log levels to capture essential information. The Frappe framework provides a logging module that supports various log levels, allowing you to track the flow of execution and pinpoint the source of errors.

Mastering error reporting in Frappe Framework and ERPNext development is an essential skill. Your meticulous documentation, collaborative spirit, and commitment to improvement contribute not only to your projects but also to the wider developer community. By transforming errors into opportunities for growth, you’ll elevate your proficiency and the quality of the software you create.

Below is an example of logging you can use when you want to log different levels of errors:

from frappe import log, _

log.debug(_("Debug message"))
log.error(_("Error message"))

In the below video, I will demonstrate how you can quickly get started with error reporting. If you need to report the exact level of the error, use the example I have already provided above.
