In this post I will show you how to easily integrate FirePHP – Mozilla Firefox extension with Zend Framework 2. FirePHP enables you to log to your Firebug Console using a simple PHP method call. All data is sent via response headers and will not interfere with the content on your page. FirePHP is ideally suited for AJAX development where clean JSON and XML responses are required.

General information

At the beginning some basic notes:

So download server side version and unpack the archive.
Find the FirePHPCore inside and copy it to /vendor/firephp directory.

At this step you should have FirePHP.class.php in the /vendor/firephp/FirePHPCore/.

Now rename FirePHP.class.php to FirePHP.php.

Once you successfully installed FirePHP extension in Mozilla Firefox you can get to next step – setting up the Zend\Log in our tutorial application.
