Timber is a general-purpose error-logging and alert system for WordPress.
Timber is a general-purpose error-logging and alert system for WordPress. It traps and catalogues PHP errors at multiple levels, and provides detailed stack trace and debug information. It integrates with the Role Manager plugin to allow user & role specific permissions to be set to view and/or clear errors.
Timber is intended primarily as a developer's tool, to be enabled in a sandbox environment while debugging plugins or themes in-progress. However, it also has potential in a production setting, as a way to hide errors from the end-user while still logging them for administrator review. The configuration settings allow for precise control of what type of errors and what error information is logged, so it can be deployed in varying scenarios without runaway logs filling the database.
Several additional features are planned, and a good deal of real-world testing is still required. Timber is currently in beta.
