Highlight .NET Stack Trace In Exception - jQuery netStack.js

netStack.js is a minimal jQuery syntax highlighting plugin for .NET that enables you to highlight the exception information (stack traces) using your own CSS styles.

How to use it:

1. Insert your stack trace into a <pre> or <code> tag.

<pre class="stacktrace">
ConsoleApplication1.MyCustomException: some message .... ---> System.Exception: Oh noes!
   at ConsoleApplication1.SomeObject.OtherMethod() in C:\ConsoleApplication1\SomeObject.cs:line 24
   at ConsoleApplication1.SomeObject..ctor() in C:\ConsoleApplication1\SomeObject.cs:line 14
   --- End of inner exception stack trace ---
   at ConsoleApplication1.SomeObject..ctor() in C:\ConsoleApplication1\SomeObject.cs:line 18
   at ConsoleApplication1.Program.DoSomething() in C:\ConsoleApplication1\Program.cs:line 23
   at ConsoleApplication1.Program.Main(String[] args) in C:\ConsoleApplication1\Program.cs:line 13

2. Download and insert the jQuery netStack.js after jQuery library.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="netStack.js"></script>

3. Initialize the plugin on the <pre> element.


4. Apply your own styles to the highlighted strings.

pre, code {
  background-color: #222;
  color: #ffffff;
  font-family:'Roboto Mono'

.st-type {
  color: #0a8472;
  font-weight: bolder;

.st-method {
  color: #70c9ba;
  font-weight: bolder;

.st-frame-params {
  color: #ffffff;
  font-weight: normal;

.st-param-type { color: #0a8472; }

.st-param-name { color: #ffffff; }

.st-file { color: #f8b068; }

.st-line { color: #ff4f68; }

5. Default values for classes.

  frame: 'st-frame',
  type: 'st-type',
  method: 'st-method',
  paramsList: 'st-frame-params',
  paramType: 'st-param-type',
  paramName: 'st-param-name',
  file: 'st-file',
  line: 'st-line'
