[ New feature ] We have released a new feature which provides a keyboard shortcut function.

edump’s new feature has been released recently. It’s a keybord function on the viewer. You will be able to use some shortcuts on the viewer and confirm how to use it on the background wall.

[ shift + r ] Reload

[ shift + c ] Clear

[ shift + ctrl ] Message Area ON/OFF

[ shift + 1 ] User Interface ON/OFF

The shortcut is very important to improve efficiency. We are going to add new features every time.

[ TIPS ] Let’s set up an efficient environment for WordPress development.

You can develop your WordPress program efficiently using edump. Usually the user needs to turn “WP_DEBUG” on for the development of WordPress Plugins and Themes as well as producing the logs and enabling other debugging software. However, There are usually some errors inside WordPress because it is complex and has a lot of features. Moreover it’s running with other plugins. Probably there are also some errors inside.

edump is providing a WordPress Plugin. After installing it, The developers will be able to get the errors inside WordPress whether “WP_DEBUG” is “on” or “off”. These are “Notifications, Warnings and Fatal Errors”. This feature will be enabled after clicking these check boxes below.

Furthermore, you will be able to use the features of edump for PHP and JavaScript. The developers don’t need to change the settings on WordPress and they will be able to use this plugin in the production stage if they encounter trouble on the blog. Let’s try this plugin with edump!

[ New feature ] edump’s viewer has been equipped with a new feature.

Hello everyone. Recently edump’s viewer has been equipped with a new feature which is switching to “Show User Interface”. You’ll be able to change the status when needed. When you use this feature, you can see more variables on the viewer. You will be able to change the status when you push “Shift + 1” on the keyboard . Pushing it everytime, showing the status of the User Interface will be changed. We hope to improve your development environment.

Some bugs have been fixed on PHP

There were a few possibilities of bugs in the PHP version of edump but we have already fixed them. If the user’s code has some conditions with edump’s module that need to be fulfilled, there might be a “Warning” notice on the PHP parser. These bugs happened on PHP only. You won’t see a similar issue in your codes on edump in the future. We hope to improve your development environment.

[ TIPS ] How to debug easily when creating PDF files for web development.

Hello I think there’s a lot of work involved when a PDF file is created on a web site. Probably a PDF file is the best for publishing on the internet. If the users are going to share Adobe Illustrator files or haves files to print, perhaps they’ll have to use the PDF format every time. Of course there’s a lot of similar work recently, but it’s very hard to debug a PDF file which was created with the client’s server development. Usually the developer has 3 methods for developing PDF files.

(1) Using print debug. You have to concentrate on seeing numbers and characters.

This is an easy way to debug the program code for the developer. However,  you won’t be able to recognize the actual PDF file if you finish writing the final code until the end.

(2) Debugging the code while creating a log file on the server

You can confirm the variable live but it’s not realistic. You have to check the log file every time you debug. This method is troublesome.

(3) Using an authentic debugger.

If you can install the authentic debugger, you can debug efficiently, but you have to install the debugger software to your server and you might not be able to install it depending on the environment. Usually you can not install a specific software to the client’s server.

■Tentatively develop the code efficiently.

Let’s try using edump. You can use it easily since it’s at the same level as “print debug”.


You’ll be able to debug codes efficiently if you use edump and you won’t need to install any additional software to your server. You can prepare this authentic environment using your browser’s extension also as well as confirm various variables with the actual PDF file so it’s efficient in debugging.

Web developing is easy but sometimes you’ll encounter some difficulties. Every situation depends on the server’s environment. You have to select the most efficient environment with your programming language every time.

The plugin for WordPress has been upgraded.

The plugin for WordPress has been upgraded recently. Its version is 1.0.1 now. The user can arrange the settings depending on the situation. And this version has been equipped with a “JavaScript” module also. You can choose to use these features on the administration panel. It’s convenient when you are developing plugins and themes using the language of JavaScript.  We hope to improve the user’s development environment every time.


“_v” which is the main function of edump has been equipped with a feature that can receive variable arguments.

“_v” is the main function on edump, so usually the users use this for debugging every time. Recently this function, “_v” has been equipped with a feature which can receive variable arguments. The users will be able to send some messages at the same time. For example

■Previously( 1 argument only)



_v($val1, $val2, $val3);

Of course the user can utilize this feature on the 4 languages: PHP, JavaScript, Ruby and Python. Probably this feature will be able to contribute to your program’s development efficiently.

Largely accessing edump will be prevented.

Recently edump has been equipped with a new feature which prevents it from being accessed by unauthorized and malicious websites. This feature can recognize specific malicious access and users on the system so edump will still be able to run the service for their users if bad users try malicious access. We want to provide safe and quality service for our users every time so we will improve edump again and again.
