  • (2020-02-17) Zahed Dev: Can you make the UI like what JSON Formatter does, show in the same page with two tabs one raw and one formatted, rather then creating an annoying modal ?

  • (2019-08-20) Cole Geissinger: At first I had a problem getting this to work but found the extension Wappalyzer was preventing from working! LOVE this plugin, I just wish there was a setting to say I want the var_dump dialog to load in fullscreen mode always instead of in the little modal.

  • (2017-08-24) New Media Entertainment: Works like a charm !
  • (2017-08-10) Justin Moreland: A recent update made it so I can't scroll down inside the box. The overflow of the displayed array of var_dump elements is overflow visible, with scrolling only affecting the page behind. Also it never auto-detects anymore. I can't use it in this state. Here's a video demoing the bug: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wwgj03b4cj3jll4/var_dump.mp4?dl=0 Not sure if this helps debug, but I'm running Chrome Version 60.0.3112.90 on a 2013 15" Macbook Pro. Maybe if you could give the modal a css property: overflow: scroll; and the outer <body>? an overflow: hidden;
  • (2017-07-27) Santut Kandur: love it
  • (2017-06-09) Mohammed Attya: It's good but I had to select then var_dump here it'll be better if it is working automatically (I saw Jeffery Way doing this)
  • (2017-01-21) Piotr: Doesn't work on latest Chrome. EDIT: Reset Chrome and it works now! No idea what was causing it to fail. Thanks for the reply!

    I have no 'var_dump_here' option after I right click on a page I var_dump. I'm on Chrome Version 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) (64-bit) for Linux.
  • (2018-02-26, v:1.6.1) Knox McCormac: DevonThink Clipping Extension Interferes
    I could not figure why var_masterpiece was not automatically displaying the var_dump. It turns out that the DevonThink clipping extension interferes with var_masterpiece displaying it's dialog. Not sure that there is anything that you can do to correct this but I thought you should know. I am running Version 64.0.3282.186 (Official Build) (64-bit) of Chrome.

  • (2016-11-01, v:1.3.0) Z-index

    The extension doesn't work for me since Chrome has been updated to Chrome 53.

By the way awesome extension and very helpful for developers. I really appreciate it man ! Keep up the good work !
