Debug php in emacs with geben
Aug 08, 2008 @ 11:18:09

On the local.ch blog today, there's this new post (from Philipp Kelle) showing how to, with the help of geben, easily debug your applications from emacs.

While PHP-developing it sometimes is just too tedious to do those 'add a echo here and there, then reload and search the echoed strings on the screen'-loops. So I searched for a debugger for my favourite editor emacs. After a lengthy install procedure I finally got it running: With geben on emacs you can debug PHP (step through and evaluate expressions).

The post steps you through the installation - adding in xdebug, changing the PHP configuration, and getting and installing geben (along with other required packages).
