New in Symfony 6.1: Profiler Improvements (part 2)

Better Code Editor Selection

in #44575
and #45745.

The Symfony framework.ide configuration option defines the IDE/editor to use
to open files when clicking on paths in error pages and other parts of the profiler.
Some developers don’t like this option because it sets the IDE/editor as a
project-wide option, when in reality choosing an IDE or text editor is one of
the most personal decisions for developers.

That’s why in Symfony 6.1 we’ve improved this feature to allow defining the
IDE/editor via an environment variable called SYMFONY_IDE. When the
framework.ide option is not set, Symfony tries to read that env var to get
the IDE/editor.

An additional bonus of this feature is that you must only set the env var once
in your system to use the same IDE/editor everywhere. The framework.ide option
requires setting it per project.

Xdebug Information Page

in #44483.

The web debug toolbar displays debug information about the PHP version, whether
OPcache and Xdebug are enabled or not, etc. It also provides a link to see the
output of the phpinfo() function so you can check the value of PHP
configuration options or if some PHP extension is missing.

In Symfony 6.1 we’re improving this information with a new link to the „Xdebug
info page“, where you can see all the configuration options used by Xdebug:

Copying HTTP Client Requests as cURL Commands


Contributed by
Jérôme Tanghe

in #43931.

The Symfony profiler collects all the information about the requests made with
the HttpClient component. This helps you debug any issues about them, but
sometimes it’s easier to re-run the request to try to reproduce the issue.

That’s why in Symfony 6.1 all HttpClient requests include a cURL button to
get the cURL command needed to reproduce the same request:

For example, consider the following simple request:

$response = $client->request(‚GET‘, ‚https://api.github.com/repos/symfony/symfony‘);

The generated cURL command would look like this:

$ curl
–compressed
–request GET
–url ‚https://api.github.com/repos/symfony/symfony‘
–header ‚accept: */*‘
–header ‚user-agent: Symfony HttpClient/Curl‘
–header ‚accept-encoding: gzip‘
