5.3 Debug Template Changes Fonts and Downloads External CSS Files


The New Debug Template Changes Fonts and Downloads External CSS Files. This is really bad IMO for several reasons, most notably:

1) I see a FOUC when using Bootstrap 4
2) The added requests hit the server and add an unnecessary layer of complexity when troubleshooting
3) I like the previous layout much better, at least most of it
4) The new debug template is unusable when JavaScript is disabled

The proposed solution is to add back the previous Modern Debug Template and users can choose whether they want to use the JavaScript-dependent one or not (for me personally the choice is clear).

Just noticed the modern debug css files conflicts with the administrator css classes

with this PR, the Select Debug Template TH is admin blue for the classic template, but grey with the modern template

I added back the Debug Template from 5.2 with the label “Standard”

Added Simple Debug Template that is based on Lucee 5.2's Modern template and is functional without JavaScript

I'm not seeing that simple.cfc or standard.cfc as options for debugging templates under Lucee

it would be nice to have a mega simple link.cfc which just renders out a link to the web admin log viewer

You’re right. The Simple.cfc file is in the .lco but for some reason it is not in extracted to /lucee-server/context/context/admin - I pinged about it. I expected it to be extracted automagically.

Also, not sure what you mean RE: link.cfc
