I was just wondering how many other people use Xdebug?
I love it and as an ex-VB developer would be lost without it.
Got it working well with phpStorm.
In a past life I lived in a debugger while doing Java for about 10-12 years. Couldn't live without it. I gave PHP Storm and xdebug a go for awhile but just gave up on it... just wasn't as polished as Java debugging tools. I personally love sublime too much to go back to a big IDE for PHP.
Absolutely, much nicer than the usual echo/var_dump/die.
It gives you multiple places you would otherwise
dd() with. The breakpoints are also useful to debugging steps taking in loops. Really useful!
It's especially good when running things where output might be masked, such as if
ob_* functions are used.
