Screenshot

Kint for PHP is a powerful and modern, zero-setup replacement for var_dump(), print_r() and debug_backtrace(). You'll wonder how you developed without it.


Installation and usage

<?php
require '/kint/Kint.class.php';

Or, if you use Composer:

    "require": {
       ...
       "raveren/kint": "v0.9"
    }

That's it, you can now use Kint to debug your code:

<?php
########## DUMP VARIABLE ###########################
Kint::dump($GLOBALS, $_SERVER); // any number of parameters
// or simply use d() as a shorthand:
d($_SERVER);


########## DEBUG BACKTRACE #########################
Kint::trace();
// or via shorthand:
d(1);


########## TEXT-ONLY OUTPUT ########################
s($GLOBALS);


########## MISCELLANEOUS ###########################
// to disable all output
Kint::enabled(false);
// further calls, this one included, will not yield any output
d('Get off my lawn!'); // no effect

Furthermore

  • sd() and dd() are shorthands for s();die; and d();die; respectively.
  • !Kint::dump() and !dd() will display the dump expanded by default.
  • @Kint::dump() and @d() will return the output instead of displaying it.

I'd really appreciate it if you forked the wip branch when introducing changes. Currently it's located here:

https://github.com/raveren/kint/tree/1.0.0-wip

The stable master branch is usually behind and is updated rarely in big batches of tested functionality.
