FireTemplate Template Debugger

Discussion in 'Add-on Releases [Archive]' started by Darren Gordon, Oct 29, 2010.

    Last week Kier posted a video entitled What variables do I have to work with in the templates? showing how you can use PHP debugging tools to find out the values that are being sent to templates.

    This inspired me to write this simple addon to automate the whole process for you.

    FireTemplate sorts out and sends all of the template variables to the console in FireFox, allowing you to see what was sent to the templates and what the values were. Simply install FireTemplate; ensure you have FireFox with Firebug and FirePHP; enable debug, and visit a page.

    It also works for AJAX :)

    Here's a screenshot to demonstrate:


    Note: Requires XenForo 1.0.0 Beta 3.

    Have fun!

    Chrome has firebug lite. Once I have the add-on installed, I'll let you know if it works with this add-on. :)

    It doesn't, and I had to disable Chrome's Firebug Lite because it did horrendous things to various sites' Javascript.

    :( That's what I came to realize as well. Unfortunate.

    Uploaded a final 1.0.0.

    Changes introduced in Beta 3 means that no hacking is required. Just install and use :)
