Christoph Dorn writes on FirePHP and Zend Framework 1.6

p. Christoph Dorn has released an interesting tutorial titleed “FirePHP and Zend Framework 1.6”: over on his blog. In it (as you can most likely deduce from the title) he gives a quick rundown on how to get up and running with the new FireBug/FirePHP integration that comes with Zend Framework 1.6. Here’s a quick piece to wet your whistle.

bq. The long awaited day has arrived. Zend Framework 1.6 just shipped and with it native support for FirePHP!

This means that if you use Zend Framework (ZF) you can now log to your Firebug Console via FirePHP without needing to download any other PHP files such as the FirePHPCore library.

If you are interested in the new things happening with Zend Framework and making the most of them, you won’t want to miss this quick tutorial.

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PCs.   For the past 10 years, Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.33, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
