Then add panel to your debug config:
'modules'=>[ ... 'debug'=>[ ... 'panels'=>[ ... 'vardumper'=>[ 'class'=>'\widewhale\debug\vardumper\panels\VarDumperPanel' ] ] ] ... ]
... use widewhale\debug\vardumper\components\VarDumper; ... VarDumper::dump($var);
Since class name same as yii\helpers\VarDumper you basicly can just replace yii\helpers\VarDumper with widewhale\debug\vardumper\components\VarDumper if you're used default VarDumper helper previously.
IMPORTANT If you want to use yii\helpers\VarDumper and widewhale\debug\vardumper\components\VarDumper simultaneously you should use aliases (or fully qualified namespace names)
use widewhale\debug\vardumper\components\VarDumper; use yii\helpers\VarDumper as YiiVarDumper; ... VarDumper::dump($var); YiiVarDumper::dump($var); OR \widewhale\debug\vardumper\components\VarDumper::dump($var);
