Snapshot issues

Snapshot issues arise when Warhol has problems understanding the pattern library. They must not be confused with report types, which are the building blocks of Warhol's test results. You only have to care about snapshot issues if Warhol fails to process something in your pattern library. The most common causes of snapshot issues are error in the pattern library's configuration.

There are three types snapshot issues:

  • ERROR (red): an isolated problem prevented Warhol from analyzing parts of the pattern library
  • FATAL (black): something went so wrong that Warhol had to abort analyzing the pattern library
  • DEBUG (purple): diagnostic messages that Warhol thinks may help with debugging other issues (or Warhol itself)

FATAL errors prevent Warhol from doing anything useful the pattern library, while everything of type ERROR only affects Warhol's understanding of some of the patterns (e.g. only a single component or just the theme colors).
