This post will shine a light on some gems I found when installing Blackfire on Fedora.
I started installing blackfire, because I was curious about bottlenecks of some web application.
– these steps are primarily inspired by Blackfire’s installation guide
Blackfire and Remi’s RPM Repository
They are packages from a different repository and all prefixed like
php72-. It seemed very logical to me that I copy some files to get Blackfire working on all my PHP versions.
I was ready to copy
/etc/opt/remi/php70/php.d/zz-blackfire.ini, but surprisingly the latter already existed:
Now I don’t know yet how this is made possible(I’m going to do some further research), but I thought it’s actually pretty cool that one package like
blackfire-php gets integrated so well into my development environment.
