Integrating FirePHP

  • Install Firebug plugin for Firefox from here.

  • Install FirePHP plugin for Firefox from here.

  • Download FirePHP package from here.

  • Extract 'FirePHPCoreXXX/lib/FirePHPCore' compressed folder to '/path/to/protected/components/FirePHPCore' folder.

  • At /path/to/index.php, after the line
require_once($yii);
    ~~~

    Add the following code:
    ~~~
   [php]
    if (YII_DEBUG){
        Yii::import("application.components.FirePHPCore.fb", true);
    }
    ~~~

    So, you will have (in 1.0.x version)

    ~~~
    [php]
    require_once($yii);
    if (YII_DEBUG){
        Yii::import("application.components.FirePHPCore.fb", true);
    }
    Yii::createWebApplication($config)->run();
    ~~~

    (1.1.x version)
    ~~~
    [php]
    $app = Yii::createWebApplication($config); 
    if (YII_DEBUG){
        Yii::import("application.components.FirePHPCore.fb", true); 
    } 
    $app->run();
    ~~~
That's it! Now you can display your variables on FirePHP with a simple 'fb' command inside your PHP code:

[php] fb($my_variable); ~~~

To view the results, open Firebug at 'console' tab and run your PHP file.
