Skpr provides developer images for local PHP environments.
These images come with Xdebug installed for debugging exercises.
This document covers the ways which develop teams can use Xdebug when debugging their application.
Xdebug can be triggered either by a cookie (web request) or environment variable (command line).
Below is a list of resources for setting up an extension for your browser / IDE combination.
