Debug PHP In VSCode With XDebug
Jul 25, 2018 @ 11:48:13

On the CodeWall site there's a tutorial posted showing the VS Code users out there how to set up debugging with XDebug for your PHP-based projects.

VSCode is great, the fact that it can work with a vast amount of languages help’s it cater for everyone’s taste. One special tool that comes with VSCode is the Debug feature and when configured correctly, is a dream to use. If you’ve previously worked with Visual Studio 2017 for example, you will know what I mean. This guide will go through how to set-up the PHP xDebug module to work in tandem with VSCode, completely enabling full-on functional debugging across your application.

The tutorial is broken into a few main sections: getting the basics ready, configuring the editor and an example of it in use. It provides screenshots of the editor as it goes along and links to other helpful resources (like the XDebug Chrome helper) to make the process as painless as possible.
