I use IntelliJ for Wordpress plugin development.- at least I try
there are MANY articles on setting this up, though the IDEA documentation is a bit scattered (have to go to mu;ltiple locations to pull it together and it gets confused with PHPStrom docs).
The problem is all the [LMX]AMPP and Wordpress articles stop short of setting up a debugging configuration. They are all 'just do this and this and your good to go'. No, if you want a debugger you have to weed thru outdated and sparse articles on setting up xDebug. Can take half a day.
I would LOVE to find a setup that is ready to go that includes debugger setup. Anyone know any good articles?
The issue is everytime I upgrade a [LMX]AMPP setup, the hunt begins again for debugger setup documentation. I don't know what the history is behind removing debugger configuration from these instant up tools. But man....
Is there a distro that is ready to go for developers? For IntelliJ should I use ZEND or XDebug? I am looking for ease of use and ease of setup.
