What is console.log( )

MDN web docs explain console.log() very well.

The console.log() method outputs a message to the web console. The message may be a single string (with optional substitution values), or it may be any one or more JavaScript objects.


If you are a Frontend Developer or who use web browser, you need to know well about this method. As a junior web dev, I also love printing with this method but sometime I meet obstacle.

Work with PHP

My company has a website that made by Wordpress. So i need to fix bug in in PHP environment the first thing i need to find is this.

“How can i debug with console.log()

For this reason, I decided to wrap up that method today.

How can i print Console.log( ) in PHP?

The principle is simple. PHP is a backend environment, it draws code into pieces.

console.log('this is a Variable:', $variable);

If we want to write console.log( ) like above then,

echo "<script>console.log('this is a Variable: " . $variable. "' );</script>";

So easy right? If it is little hard to understand than you can break down it.

echo "<script>"
echo "console.log('this is a Variable: " . $variable. "' );"
echo "</script>"

This way, you will be able to understand the principle of PHP to output pieces one by one.
