Provides a lightweight development runserver on Werkzeug with debugging

Project description

django-rundbg
=============

Provides a lightweight development runserver on Werkzeug with a
web-based debugger with support for REST APIs.

Features
--------

- Friendly for API debugging, like Django Rest Framework.
- Werkzeug `web-based
debugger <http://werkzeug.pocoo.org/docs/0.11/debug/#using-the-debugger>`__

:warning: Be very careful to keep this away from any production environment
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Installation and Configuration
------------------------------

>From PyPI with pip

::

pip install django-rundbg

In your `development
settings <https://code.djangoproject.com/wiki/SplitSettings#Multiplesettingfilesimportingfromeachother>`__
file add the following:

::

from yourproject.settings_general import INSTALLED_APPS

INSTALLED_APPS = INSTALLED_APPS + ['django_rundbg',]

DEBUG = True
DEBUG_PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS = True

Quickstart
----------

After installation and configuration, just run:

::

python manage.py rundbg --use-link

To try out, just place an ``assert False`` statement whenever you want
to inspect your code and variables and this will show either at your
current browser window or in the dev console.

Chrome Dev Console example

Invoking
--------

After installation and configuration, just run:

::

python manage.py rundbg

Since it extends on Django's ``runserver`` you can pass on the same
parameters than to ``rundbg``:

::

python manage.py rundbg --no-reload 0.0.0.0:5678

Additionally, it supports one additional parameter useful for debugging
XHR requests:

::

python manage.py rundbg --use-link

This will show an very simple error 500 page, with a *link* to the
Werkzeug Traceback and web-based interactive debugger that you can open
in any browser window. The default behaviour for the Werkzeug debugger
is to serve the debugging page to the request that created the
exception.

Additionally, it supports the following parameters from
``runserver_plus``: - ``--reloader-interval 2`` After how many seconds
auto-reload should scan for updates in poller-mode. -
``--keep-meta-shutdown`` Keep
``request.META['werkzeug.server.shutdown']`` function which is
automatically removed because Django debug pages tries to call the
function and unintentionally shuts down the Werkzeug server.

*Werkzeug security PIN is disabled*.

Credits
-------

This project is strongly based upon the work of others: - The `Django
Extensions <https://github.com/django-extensions/django-extensions>`__
``runserver_plus`` is a more comprehensive command than this one. - The
`Werkzeug <http://werkzeug.pocoo.org/>`__ server. - `Another
take <https://github.com/philippbosch/django-werkzeug-debugger-runserver>`__
on the same challenge.
