Have you ever tried to get the value of a config param from oxconfig / oxviewconfig or dump the return value of an OXID function? Its like dancing with an one winged epileptic duck.
Usually you had to paste the function call somewhere into a random controller or create a custom controller to call multiple functions.
lets cure that one winged duck
Dev console is a part of my vt-devutils collection, it grants you direct access to the most framework functions (except functions of view classes), so you can quickly create a new object from particular model and tests it’s functions, or just check the value of a config param
all the php code will be evaluated on the webserver, be careful with the code you run, cause it might damage your shop or cause a data loss
get it here:
