another debugger issue

Can anyone help me with this ? I've started a very simple project in rails (rubymine 7.0.4, vagrant, ubuntu box in a windows host) and, when i run it without debugging, everything goes well, here's my controller's code:

 
class DemoController < ApplicationController

  layout false

  def index
   render 'hola'
  end

def hello
  @array
= [1,2,3,4,5]
end

def index2
  redirect_to :action => 'index'
end

def lynda
  redirect_to 'http://lynda.com'
end

end



Then I tested the debugger, it asked me to install a debase gem. The gem was installed and the debugger starts fine !
I've set a breakpoint in the line where i defined the @array instance variable and when the debugger gets there it throws the following error:

Started GET "/demo/hello" for 192.168.20.1 at 2015-03-20 12:27:14 +0000
Processing by DemoController#hello as HTML
Completed 500 Internal Server Error in 3ms

NoMethodError (undefined method `+' for nil:NilClass):
  app/controllers/demo_controller.rb:10:in `hello'

Hi,

it is just a guess, but the problem might b caused by byebug gem, to verify it just remove it from your Gemfile.

Regards, Oleg.

Yeah, that did it! :) Is it ok to remove byebug completely?
Is it also normal to see the "stack frame is not available" in the variables tab of the debugger when hitting a breakpoint?

Hi,

byebug is a console debugger, so if you do not plan to use it just remove from gemfile
if you want to use it (or it is a shared project and some people wan to use it)
I'd suggest to add it in the following way
gem 'byebug;, require: !ENV['RM_INFO']

As for stacktraces: sometimes they may be unavailable, but usually they should be.
So, it looks like a bug for me.

Regards, Oleg.
