I need to see all the variables that are available in a view. I am a front end developer so I mostly work in the views directory. I don't always know which variables are being passed to the templates by the back end dev. Instead of asking him every time an easy solution would be some type of snippet that I can temporarily paste into the view that I'm working on so I can see all the available variables and even better if I can also see their types and values.
I tried this:
<pre><?php var_dump(get_defined_vars()); ?></pre>
