The Drupal 7 Search Krumo Module extends the Devel module and makes it easier to debug PHP variables while developing Drupal modules or building Drupal themes. It adds a simple search box that allows you to quickly search through the Krumo output that is generated by the dpm function.

The Problem

Style this using views and CSS. What you are looking at below is a view being displayed as a grid. This is by far the easiest way to display content in a nice looking grid view, but as you will read there is a MUCH better way.
