Easy debugging, profiling and tracing extension for Xdebug

Image from store Xdebug helper
Description from store A must have for everyone thats debugging, profiling and tracing PHP code with Xdebug. This extension will help you to enable/disable debugging, profiling and tracing easily, instead of juggling around with POST/GET variables or cookies. This extension is very useful for PHP developers that are using PHP tools with Xdebug support like PHPStorm, Eclipse with PDT, Netbeans and MacGDBp or any other Xdebug compatible profiling tool like KCacheGrind, WinCacheGrind or Webgrind. By default the extension icon will show up on all pages, but to keep your browser as clean as possible, the extension can be configured to be only visible at the pages you want in the settings panel. Hotkeys: - Ctrl+Shift+X (Cmd+Shift+X on Mac) opens the popup. - Alt+Shift+X toggles the debugging state. --- Feel free to submit ideas, bugs and pull request to our Github project: https://github.com/wrep/xdebug-helper-for-chrome

  • (2022-08-07) Lee McCall: The profiler works for me using xdebug 3.1.5 and PHP 8.1.9. If its not working for you, maybe you don't have your xdebug settings configured correctly.
  • (2022-06-09) Jeremy Simkins: Doesn't work for xdebug 3. Can no longer turn on or off debug and it just doesn't work like it did for xdebug 2.
  • (2022-06-07) Patrick Henninger: Not working in Brave Browser...
  • (2022-05-30) Yunhui Deng: After installing this extension in Chrome, I could never enable the debug mode, on two different computer:(

  • (2021-04-11) Giray Temel: not working
  • (2021-04-09) Bartosz Telesiński: Nice tool, but can it be upgraded so it plays nice with Frontend app (Angular) with PHP API backend? Probably Chrome started to prevent something.

  • (2019-09-27) Martin Svoboda: does not work anymore
  • (2019-08-09) Mohammad Aghanabi: It just listens on 9000 port and doesn't allow users to change it. So if in your environment the default xdebug port is already busy, you can't utilize this extension.

  • (2019-04-15) Ivan Zaets: Кто то пробовал устанавливать в subline text v3.2.1 build 3207? Установил, но когда запускаю, то никакие переменные не отображаются, если кто то сталкивался и нашел решение отпишитесь. php-7.3-x64

  • (2017-09-28) Кирилл Арутюнов: Расширение отличное, но нельзя отключить поддержку хоткея. Такое же сочетание в гугл-документах зачеркивает текст. Я чуть с ума не сошёл, пытаясь побороть это. В итоге удалил расширение :)

  • (2020-08-06, v:1.6.1) David Mann: Chrome blocks xdebug cookie for cross domain
    Hello, it would be cool if this plugin could start xdebug by adding GET parameters also, because if I try to start xdebugging a page that is embedded in a page on another domain, Chrome no longer sends the cookie unless `withCredentials` is set to true on the request. It makes it a bit tricky to have to go modify the JS to debug a request. What do you think?
