Debugger?

XML, Perl, Python, and other languages can be discussed here, even if it isn't PHP (We might forgive you).

Debugger?

Post by Celauran »

XDebug plugin for Sublime Text doesn't work right on OS X, MacGDBp is forever crashing on me, and using PHPStorm just seems like overkill for smaller projects. What do you all use for debugging?

Part of what you are asking is a text editor question -- which no one can help you with. ;) Have you tried BBEdit or TextMate? They might work for you, but are a step down from Sublime Text. There are also some stand-alone XDebug front-ends that you might look into.

That latter is really what I was asking about. MacGDBp is the only standalone client that I've seen, aside from running gdb from the command line. Editor integration is nice, but not essential. I just want something that's reasonably robust.

I'd be interested to hear about them as well. There were none at least a couple of years ago, which even led me to start my own project.

And is there anything that runs on non-macs?

The second one is the one I've found to crash on me quite frequently. Unfortunate, because it's otherwise quite good. I'll take a look at Codebug. Thanks, Christopher.

None that I know of. MacGDBp uses Cocoa. Perhaps you could use GnuStep (http://www.gnustep.org/) to port it to Linux?

Perhaps a certain talented Canadian programmer could fix a few of those bugs ... hint, hint. :)
