Setting up xdebug and debugging from drush and cli in PHPSTROM

Submitted by barnettech on Tue, 04/20/2021 - 10:22

These directions worked with some modifications: https://javorszky.co.uk/2018/05/03/getting-xdebug-working-on-php-7-2-an…

I was using PHP on the command line with homebrew, so installed xdebug with pecl install xdebug
then I was able to put the following in the php.ini file, find the php.ini file for the command line by running php --ini and look for Loaded Configuration File in the output.

The below is for XDEUG 3.0

  if (!empty($params['from'])) {
    $message['from'] = $params['from'];
  $message['subject'] = $params['subject'];
  $message['body'][] = $params['body'];


To Drupal config import a single file or a handful of files

Submitted by barnettech on Tue, 03/16/2021 - 10:01

Copy the config file(s) to a temp directory called only-few-configs (or whatver you like) and run drush cim --partial --source=/full/pathTo/only-few-configs/

This should have worked supposedly: drupal config:import:single --directory="/Users/jamesbarnett/sites/IPC/ipcedtr/config/default" --file="views.view.confirm_message_product_display.yml". (might need drupal console?)

 $results = \Drupal::entityQuery('app_voucher')
      ->range(0, 20000)
foreach ($results as $result) {
      $messenger = \Drupal::messenger();
      $voucher_entity = \Drupal::entityTypeManager()->getStorage("app_voucher")->load($result);
      $voucher_id = $voucher_entity->voucher_id->getValue();
      $product_id = $voucher_entity->product_id->getValue();
