Happy birthday to me and Devel form debug module to you all

Apr 20, 2015 · by Tim Kamanin

I'm turning 32 today. People love birthdays, to me it 's just another line number in a messed stack trace output (philosophy mode enabled).

Two years ago I released a drupal module called Get form id _(deprecated from now on)_ that does one small task - it tells you any form's id and lets you copy & paste alter hook for that form. With time I created an improved version of the module for my personal usage and even wanted to release it as a "premium" module on CodeCanyon (yes, I know I know ;), but then changed my mind and kept using it privately.

On birthdays I love to give presents instead of getting. And today I felt that it would be great to release that code as a contrib Drupal module, so you all could use it. Since functionality of the module is a bit wider than of the initial version, I decided to rename it to " Devel Form Debug".

So please welcome the " Devel Form Debug" module that can be described in one simple line _" Find out form ID and print out form variables easily"_. The module relies on a Devel module in some part so I decided to mention it in the title. Below you'll see a quick video showing you what this little module can do for you:

Hope you'll like it. Download module here: https://www.drupal.org/project/devel_form_debug or via drush:
