Laracasts just published a new video in the “Be Awesome with PhpStorm” series. This time focusing on Xdebug and it’s really nice integration with PhpStorm. If you are using Homestead be sure and check out this tutorial on setting up Xdebug with Homestead.
This video was really great for me. I picked up a few tips that I didn’t know. Another neat thing I didn’t see mentioned is the ability to edit the variables in real time from the variables pane.
