Alternative Python debugger using prompt-toolkit.

Project description


An enhanced debugger that uses prompt-toolkit.

Since prompt-toolkit is a cross-platform readline replacement it should work on all platforms.

You can also import the botfly.debugger module in your code and call the post_mortem function, as with pdb.

Some notable features:

  • Colorized UI - stacktrace, prompt, etc.
  • More informative reports, prompt shows current position in stack.
  • Invoke your editor at current point.
  • REPL-like evaluator
  • Enter sub-REPL if desired.
  • Display opcodes.
  • Switch to different stack in context or cause exceptions.
  • Debug co-routines.

Automatic Debugging

Don't like those annoying uncaught exceptions? Just put the following in your code (during development) to automatically enter the debugger in the event of an uncaught exception.

from botfly import debugger



Then if an exception happens that isn't handled you will see the debugger.
