PhpStorm provides powerful built-in tools for debugging, testing and profiling your applications.
Zero-configuration debugging makes it really easy to debug your PHP applications. Besides, PhpStorm provides numerous options for debugging your PHP code with Visual Debugger, so you can: inspect variables and user-defined watches, set breakpoints and evaluate an expression in runtime, debug remote applications, debug a page in multiple sessions simultaneously, and more.
You can develop PHPUnit tests right in PhpStorm and run them instantly from a directory, file or class, by using the context menu options. Code Coverage from PHPUnit shows how much of your code is covered with tests.
You can profile your applications with Xdebug or Zend Debugger and check aggregated reports in PhpStorm.
