Crash Reporting binary dmp file and dSYM?


Hello everyone,

We are implementing the crash reporting server / client and observed the payload the client sends when reporting a crash by manually invoking it using: process.crash();.

The client will send a binary .dmp file in the upload_file_minidump path. From a quick search i did this is a windows only format and can only be viewed using a windows app…

Is this correct or I’m missing something? Also what about a dSYM file for symbolizing the addresses reported?

How do you use crash reporting in your workflow?


I am also observing that both the ver and _version fields report the electron’s version which is 0.37.2 while in the docs it states that _version should report the package.json version…

Is this a thing that only works when the app is packaged?
