Symbolicate is a rust binary that can parse macOS crash reports and generates a backtrace more like you might see from a panic.


cargo install symbolicate


symbolicate <ips-file> <dwarf-container>

The ips-file will typically come from ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/ and can be found using macOS's built in Console app.

The dwarf-container should either be the built binary that generated the crash report, or the DWARF information extracted by running dsymutil.
