This is just a short "Did you know?": If the TYPO3 admin panel is installed (in TYPO3 version 10 and above), you automatically get Symfony's
dd() (dump and die) global methods as an alternative to
DebuggerUtility::var_dump(). I like
dump for quick looks at things because it's fast and has an integrated search. For bigger problems, I'd still use
xdebug of course ;)
Or more precisely, you'll automatically get the Symfony
VarDumper Component and all it entails as it is a direct dependency of the admin panel.
