  • Announcing x-ray
    5 projects | dev.to | 17 Sep 2021
    When first creating x-ray, I felt it was necessary to display an excerpt of the source code location where the call to ray() was found. Rather than roll my own solution, I extracted the excellent Snippet class from spatie/backtrace into a package. From there it was a simple matter of adding functionality for multi-line line selections and a few other minor changes. You can view the final permafrost-dev/code-snippets package and its documentation on Github.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing ray and backtrace you can also consider the following projects:

ray-proxy - a proxy for the Ray app to allow debugging of payloads

python-devtools - Dev tools for python

laravel-ray - Debug with Ray to fix problems faster in Laravel apps

x-ray - Scan source code for calls to ray() and related calls.

app - The old version of Buggregator, which uses Laravel framework, is no longer being actively developed. The new beta version, built with Spiral framework, is now available at https://github.com/buggregator/spiral-app and offers significant improvements in performance and stability, as well as a lighter docker image size of around 300mb.


PySnooper - Never use print for debugging again

FrameworkBenchmarks - Source for the TechEmpower Framework Benchmarks project

web-frameworks - Which is the fastest web framework?

icecream - 🍦 Never use print() to debug again.

code-snippets - Easily create and work with code snippets from PHP
