Project description

Debugger configuration is one of the most difficult parts in PHP configuration process. Each release we are trying to make it a little bit better but it's always not enough. Tо make a big step further, we decided to move the part of the functionality from IDE into the browser. Within this project, it will be necessary to implement a plugin for Chrome which will communicate with an IDE and provide a smooth debugger experience. The plugin should support:

  • base actions such as start and stop debug session;
  • validate if a debugger is installed and configured on the web server;
  • synchronize web server configurations with an IDE.

The project is about UX and usability, therefore it will be the most important criterion in the project evaluation.

Technologies
