What is PHPView?

PHPView is a Chrome extension specifically designed for PHP developers. This tool allows you to validate and pretty print any kind of PHP print_r output, making it easy to debug your arrays and objects. The branches that are not needed for checking can be collapsed, allowing an easier navigation over the structure. PHPView smoothly adapts the functionalities of a known JSON viewing extension, offering similar benefits for PHP development. For further improvements, you are welcome to contribute to its GitHub repository.
