A small debug printing module that prints extra info like filenames, function names, and line numbers. It can also recursively print lists, tuples, and dicts.

Project Description

A small debug printing module that prints extra info like filenames, function names, and line numbers. It can also recursively print objects such as lists, tuples, and dicts.

More useful stuff may be added in the future.

Example Usage:

Debug printing:

from printdebug import debug
def myfunction():
    debug('Hello from myfunction.')

myfunction()

Output:

myfile.py:    3                 myfunction(): Hello from myfunction.

Formatting:

The default format for line information is '{filename}:{lineno:>5} {name:>25}(): ', but can be set with the fmt arg:

debug('Test', fmt='#{lineno} in function {name}, file: {filename}')

The format can be set once, and used every time with a DebugPrinter instance, or by overriding printdebug.default_format:

from printdebug import DebugPrinter

dp = DebugPrinter(fmt='{filename}: {name}():#{lineno}')
dp.debug('Test')

There is a default colorized format, using the `colr <https://github.com/welbornprod/colr>`__ module.

from printdebug import DebugColrPrinter
dp = DebugColrPrinter()
dp.debug('Test')

Output:

printdebug.DebugColrPrinter

Silencing debug prints:

debug() and DebugPrinter() can be silenced with debug_enable(False):

from printdebug import debug, debug_enable

debug('This will print.')

debug_enable(False)
debug('This will not.')

debug_enable()
debug('This will print now.')
