Help Needed

Are you coder looking for a project to contribute to python/asyncio libraries? This is the project for you!

Install and Configuration

$ pip install aiohttp_debugtoolbar

In order to plug in aiohttp_debugtoolbar, call aiohttp_debugtoolbar.setup on your app.

import aiohttp_debugtoolbar
app = web.Application(loop=loop)

Full Example

import asyncio
import jinja2
import aiohttp_debugtoolbar
import aiohttp_jinja2

from aiohttp import web

async def basic_handler(request):
    return {'title': 'example aiohttp_debugtoolbar!',
            'text': 'Hello aiohttp_debugtoolbar!',

async def exception_handler(request):
    raise NotImplementedError

async def init(loop):
    # add aiohttp_debugtoolbar middleware to you application
    app = web.Application(loop=loop)
    # install aiohttp_debugtoolbar

    template = """
            <title>{{ title }}</title>
            <h1>{{ text }}</h1>
              <a href="{{ app.router['exc_example'].url() }}">
              Exception example</a>
    # install jinja2 templates
    loader = jinja2.DictLoader({'index.html': template})
    aiohttp_jinja2.setup(app, loader=loader)

    # init routes for index page, and page with error
    app.router.add_route('GET', '/', basic_handler, name='index')
    app.router.add_route('GET', '/exc', exception_handler,
    return app

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
app = loop.run_until_complete(init(loop))
web.run_app(app, host='', port=9000)
