ChromePHP: Google Chrome's PHP Debugging "FirePHP" Extension


Firebug is by far the most popular developer's tool for Firefox. FirePHP is another well-known add-on that allows for debugging PHP. Unquestionably great dev tools.

Google Chrome's built-in debugger is arguably parallel in features and performance to Firefox's Firebug. A lot of devs like using Chrome, but they don't know that they can also debug their PHP in it as well. An extension called ChromePHP bridges that gap.

Still haven't heard of any browser console debuggers for Python in Chrome. Looks like your only choice of a command-line debugger for now is Firefox/Firebug using FirePy (or git clone here), though it probably wouldn't take too much work to use Python's built-in logger to capture and log to the console via JavaScript.
