If I should say anything that could be interpreted as being critical of PhpStorm, I pre-repudiate it now. I don't know enough about how it works yet to be issuing any sorts of opinions.
. Windows 7, 64-bit
. Trying to debug in Chrome
. The JB IDE extension is installed in Chrome and showing the "JB" little signature in the upper right.
. Version 6.0.3 of PhpStorm as an evaluation.
. Project created with "Web server is installed locally, source files are located under its document root".
The specifications for my local WAMP server on my development machine is:
Apache 2.4.4 VC10 - OpenSSl 0.9.8y
Zend Optimizer Plus 7.0.0-beta
msmtp 1.4.30 - Mail client for PHP
Cron - Scheduler
DtDNS - IP address updater
db_backup - Database back-up
ActivePerl via Installer
var names = ['Mary', 'John', 'Dino'];
for (var i =0; i < names.length; i++)
var name = names[i];
var stringToLog = 'Hello, ' + name;
alert ("all done");
PhpStorm is clearly starting the webpage and the output in this test html file IS going to the console window, and there aren't that many settings in the debug configuration screen to get wrong.
I do sometimes still get the message in the lower left of the screen that reads "Waiting for connection from JetBrains IDE Support extension for Chrome. Please ensure you have installed the extension or see help." And then nothing at all seems to happen, including just running through my code without stopping. And at other times it just blows through my code and doesn't hit any breakpoints.
I have no idea what's going on. This doesn't look like it should be that difficult.
Any ideas? Insights?
