The default Docker stack is shipped without a Xdebug stage. It's easy though to add Xdebug to your project, for development purposes such as debugging tests or API requests remotely.
To avoid deploying API Platform to production with an active Xdebug extension,
it's recommended to add a custom stage to the end of the
# api/Dockerfile FROM api_platform_php as api_platform_php_dev ARG XDEBUG_VERSION=2.6.0 RUN set -eux; \ apk add --no-cache --virtual .build-deps $PHPIZE_DEPS; \ pecl install xdebug-$XDEBUG_VERSION; \ docker-php-ext-enable xdebug; \ apk del .build-deps
Using an override
docker-compose.override.yml ensures that the production
configuration remains untouched.
As example, an override could look like this:
version: "3.4" services: php: build: target: api_platform_php_dev environment: # See https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/networking/#i-want-to-connect-from-a-container-to-a-service-on-the-host # See https://github.com/docker/for-linux/issues/264 # The `remote_host` below may optionally be replaced with `remote_connect_back` XDEBUG_CONFIG: >- remote_enable=1 remote_host=host.docker.internal remote_connect_back=1 remote_port=9000 idekey=PHPSTORM # This should correspond to the server declared in PHPStorm `Preferences | Languages & Frameworks | PHP | Servers` # Then PHPStorm will use the corresponding path mappings PHP_IDE_CONFIG: serverName=api-platform
Inspect the installation with the following command. The requested Xdebug version should be displayed in the output.
