A printing debugging helper.

Project description


A printing debugging helper.


dprint is inspired by a python-ideas thread, to show what's possible with a little bit of magic with plain Python code.


It's on PyPI as dprint. The obvious way will just work:

pip install dprint


Import the function dprint from the dprint module.

from dprint import dprint

def spam():
    eggs = 10
    dprint(eggs * 2)


Running the above script gives:

$ python in spam
  eggs * 2 -> 20

Operational Assumptions

The current logic for figuring out the expression passed to dprint operates under some assumptions:

  • The imported function must be called dprint
  • A call should span no more than 1 line
  • No more than 1 call on 1 line

A future version might relax these assumptions.
