The Joomlatools Framework has a built-in debugger to help you understand errors and exceptions. To enable it, set the Debug Joomla configuration to Yes, and Error Reporting to development in Joomla's global configuration.

The exception, the code that threw it and the detailed stack trace.


If you have Xdebug enabled the framework will automatically enable the debugger. You can enable Xdebug in a single command if you are using our Vagrant Box.
