Eclipse, PDT and XDebug environment for Drupal Development.
In this tutorial I will try to demonstrate how to make my MacBook Air ready for Drupal Development using the following technologies — which is what I use when developing for More than Themes as well.
- Eclipse PDT
- Drupal 7
For the purpose of this demonstration I will also demonstrate how to set a breakpoint in the page.tpl.php file of the Corporate Clean theme and inspect the available variables.
In the second part of this article, which will follow in a few weeks I will also demonstrate the creation of a simple “Hello World” Drupal module using breakpoints and inspecting the available variables there.
