I’d like your opinion of an idea I had for a module, it’s inspired by the Smarty debug console. It would run as a seperate window alongside the website you’re working on, it should display at least the following things:
Log monitor: would show the latest log-entries, (near)realtime logging is possible using ajax
Info about controller actions, rendered views, etc
Info about environment variables, like Yii config, phpinfo(), host info
File explorer, browse remote files (handy when on cloudhosting with no FTP)
The most important thing is that the debug console is a seperate module that does not (or very minimally) interfere with the running website, so it won’t mess up the workings of the site, and it’s safe to use on a live site. The module could be secured with a password or IP (similar to GII).
Does something like this already exists? And what other functionality could be included?
