Variable Info Tracker

Describe your feature request: When you hover over a variable, it will pop up a small window (sort of like Visual Studio Code) and tell what info the variable contains, what line it was declared, is it global or not, etc.

What problem(s) would this feature solve? This would solve a lot of problems with debugging, especially in programs like php and python where the variables don’t have a clear starting point. It would also give a lot of information that would help with fixing the bugs.

Explain what you were trying to do when you came across the problem leading to this feature request: I was trying to debug a program in php, but I was confused where the variables were first declared, due to there being no variable statement like “var” in js. I thought that a window like this popping up would help a lot.
