Xdebug

Xdebug

I wasn’t a PHP developer for very long before I became determined to find out how to look into the system at a given time. For a certain era, I only had access echo, print_r() and var_dump() but then once I got my local environment configured correctly to use Xdebug, it opened up a whole new world of programming. Stepping through the code line-by-line was now available to me.

How I use Xdebug :
  • Be able to pause the PHP application at any point in the code and step through each line to check the state of variables at any given point in time.
  • Can help other developers troubleshoot various Xdebug setups including setting up MAMP or LocalWP with an editor like VSCode and a web browser like Google Chrome.
