FirePHP for Firefox Developer Tools
- Project discussion: gitter.im/firephp/firephp.org
FirePHP is a logging system that can display PHP variables in a browser as an application is navigated. All communication is out of band to the application which means the logging data will not interfere with the normal functioning of the application.
On the server you need one of the following PHP libraries:
- FirePHPCore - Simple
- Limited data all sent via HTTP headers
- No enable security
- One file only
- FirePHP 1.0 - Advanced (NOT YET IMPLEMENTED)
- NOTE: Not all features provided by this library are implemented in the extension at this time.
- Data sent via HTTP headers and secondary AJAX requests to support logging in volume
- Many features including enable security

Well-crafted Contributions are Welcome.
INTENDED USE: The Logic and Code contained within forms a Developer Tool and is intended to operate as part of a Web Software Development Toolchain on which a Production System operates indirectly. It is NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN HIGH-LOAD ENVIRONMENTS as there is little focus on Runtime Optimization in order to maximize API Utility, Compatibility and Flexibility.
If you need more than what is contained within, study the Code, understand the Logic, and build your Own Implementation that is API Compatible. Share it with others who follow the same Logic and API Contract specified within. This Community of Users will likely want to use Your Work in their own Software Development Toolchains.
