What are the things that bug you when you are debugging SilverStripe? What kinds of tools would you like to have? What information could be shown that would make your life as a developer easier?

I am a participant in the Google Summer of Code, and I am working on a developer dashboard for SilverStripe. The code can be found at , the documenatation is at . The project is almost finished, but for future development it would be very useful to have feedback from as many developers as possible.

If you have any suggestions for debug features pleas post them here.


P.S.: For a nice combo install both the developer dashboard and the "dashboard" branch of the dbprofiler

Liking the dbprofiler tool, only issue was I could only get it to work on /dev/. On the homepage, and other pages it never echoed the toolbar on the page, should it be on every page?. Can I show ProfilerLogViewerController nested in the toolbar, it seemed to open a new tab which only had 1 query to profile.

The dbprofiler is an existing tool that I only modified slightly to work with my toolbar. Usually (see my "SilverStripe 3" branch) it displays a footer with some summary information on every page, but I disabled that. Other than that I don't really get what you mean.
