Questions? Comments?

  • How does this compare to mwrepl which provides breakpoints, access check bypass (private/protected), etc?
    • access check bypass would be easy to add; it includes a full PHP parser and you can manipulate commands before they are executed
    • not sure about breakpoints (is that a HHVM feature?) you can use PsySH as a sort of breakpoint though, just drop eval( \Psy\sh() ) in your code and you get a prompt
    • mwrepl itself is just  the hhvm debug mode with mediawiki loaded, so yes it's hhvm specific. 

4.  Presenter, name of your project: Jan Drewniak - 'Explore Similar' feature for search results [edit]
