Module for developer and debug tools for working with the ZF2 MVC layer.

Copy ZendDeveloperTools/config/zenddevelopertools.local.php.dist to ./config/autoload/zenddevelopertools.local.php.


  • Collectors
    • Allow third-party collectors via ServiceManager/PluginManager.
    • Every collector runs after MvcEvent::EVENT_FINISH.
      • Possible exceptions are the TimeCollector and MemoryCollector. They could listens to every MvcEvent to provide more accurate data. This behavior can be turned off via config.
    • Listen with a low priority and flush the response before the collector starts collecting if the web toolbar/FirePHP is disabled && the profiler is in silence mode.
    • Default Collectors
      • Db (Zend\Db)
      • Event
      • Time
      • Memory
      • Route
      • Request
      • Configuration ¹?
  • Configuration
    • Dis/enable every collector via config.
    • Dis/enable a strict error handling (throw exceptions). If the strict mode is disabled, every error will be saved in the report.
    • Matcher: Dis/enable the profiler if the request matches your pattern. Possible matches would be request url/path, ip, time, access role. The "matcher" should support custom matches.
  • Report
    • In-depth Web Profile Viewer
      • Requires saved reports or an imported report.
      • Every collection (even third-party) should provide a template.
    • Web Toolbar
      • Listens to the ProfilerEvent::EVENT_COLLECTED.
      • Resizable toolbar – hides some parts on lower resolutions/window sizes.
      • Template overloading, so you can add your preferred collector data to the toolbar ².
    • Storage
      • Listens to the ProfilerEvent::EVENT_COLLECTED.
      • Support for memchache(d)?, Redis, MySQL (mysqli, PDO or Zend\Db?), SQLite, PostgreSQL?, MongoDB, CouchDB?
    • FirePHP?
      • Listens to the ProfilerEvent::EVENT_COLLECTED.
      • Provides the same information as the web toolbar.
  • CLI ³
    • Debug helper for routes, config etc.?
    • Developer Sever (obviously PHP >=5.4 only)?

¹) Which config key got overwritten by which module. Won't save any config values in the report! ²) Don't know yet how templates in ZF2 work and if it is possible to achieve this in a nice fashion. ³) Does that interfere with ZF2 Tool?
