  • It is easy to add support for additional languages and debuggers.
  • Squash features an extendable debugger interface. Just implement the required methods for your preferred debugger.
  • We have several additional debuggers on our roadmap and we welcome community contributions.

Debuggers conform to the interface:

type Debugger interface {

	/// Attach a debugger to pid and return the a debug server object
	Attach(pid int) (DebugServer, error)
}

Where DebugServer consists of the following:

type DebugServer interface {
	/// Detach from the process we are debugging (allowing it to resume normal execution).
	Detach() error
	///  Return the port that the debug server listens on.
	Port() int
}

To add debugger support to squash, implement the functions above and add it to the squash client.

func getDebugger(dbgtype string) debuggers.Debugger {

	var g gdb.GdbInterface
	var d dlv.DLV

	switch dbgtype {
	case "dlv":
		return &d
	case "gdb":
		return &g
	default:
		return nil
	}
}
