yiidebugtb Yii Debug Toolbar

  1. Documentation
  2. Change Log

This extension is very useful in the development stage of project. It helps you to get info about PHP environment, application, queries logs, benchmarking with a simple little toolbar at the top of the page.

It is a recreated Symfony's developer toolbar. First idea and very first implementation was my, but this version mostly implemented by Eduard Kuleshov.

This version tested for 1.0.x branch of Yii Framework.

Last update gives additional security option. If you worry about this please download last version. (Check the README file for details)

Working for 1.1.x branch and PHP 5.3 also is good.


NOTE: Project Home Page changed from Google Code to the GitHub.com


  • Yii 1.0 or above
  • Extract the release file under protected/extensions

main.php configuration file update:

  // autoloading model and component classes
    'application.extensions.yiidebugtb.*', //our extension
          'levels'=>'error, warning, trace',
        array( // configuration for the toolbar
          'config'=>'alignLeft, opaque, runInDebug, fixedPos, collapsed, yamlStyle',
          'levels'=>'error, warning, trace, profile, info',

Options are:

  • 'alignLeft' => Debug toolbar will be aligned to the top left corner of browser window
  • 'opaque' => Makes debug toolbar almost invisible when it's minimized
  • 'runInDebug' => Show debug toolbar only if Yii application running in DEBUG MODE (see index.php for details)
  • 'fixedPos' => Makes debug toolbar sticky with browser window, not document!
  • 'collapsed' => Show debug toolbar minimized by default.
  • 'yamlStyle' => Show configuration report in Yaml or PHP-array style.

Also there is an additional security feature you may need - 'allowedIPs' option. This option holds the array of IP addresses of all machines you need to use in development cycle. So if you forget to remove YII_DEBUG from bootstrap file for the production stage, your client don't see the toolbar anyway. By default (if you didn't define it) there is only one IP address in allowedIPs list -

Now you can use regexp patterns in allowedIPs options section to describe which hosts able to view YiiDebugToolbar in a more flexible way. Here is the example which allow to show YiiDebugToolbar to whole bunch of computers in 192.168.10-15.* subnet: '192.168.1[0-5].[0-9]{3}'.
