Changing isDebugMode(), adding isDebugOutputEnabled()

We changed how debugging works in 5.3, previously you needed both debugging enabled and a template defined, but you can now enable debugging without needing a template (just viewing the logs in the admin or via the API).

But, isDebugMode() still checks for a template too.

I would like to change that to only return whether debugging is enabled, it’s stricter so I don’t see it being so risky, but happy to hear feedback on the idea.

We could then add a new function isDebugOutputEnabled() which behaves like isDebugMode() currently does?



Maybe getDebugTemplates() as a companion? But isDebugTemplateEnabled() as I dont think we refer to it as “debug output” in the admin?

been thinking about this, maybe we could just keep it simple and add ip address as an optional argument?

isDebugMode(); // is debugging enabled
isDebugMode("*"); // is debugging enabled with a global template
isDebugMode(""); // is debug enabled for my router :)
