Enhanced Python Debugger

Project description

Adds functionality to the python debugger, including support for remote debugging

Installation

pip install epdb

Usage

For debugging code locally, epdb generally works the same as pdb. You can debug a program from the python interpreter:

>>> import epdb
>>> import mymodule
>>> epdb.Epdb().run('mymodule.test()')
*** NameError: name 'execfile' is not defined
> /home/wasche/git/epdb/<string>(1)<module>()
-> """
(Epdb) continue
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<console>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/bdb.py", line 431, in run
    exec(cmd, globals, locals)
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/wasche/git/epdb/mymodule.py", line 2, in test
    import spam
ImportError: No module named 'spam'

You can also drop breakpoints at specific places in a program’s code by inserting:

import epdb; epdb.set_trace()

or by using the alias st:

import epdb; epbd.st()

To debug code that is either running on a remote system, or in a process that isn’t attached to your tty you can use epdb in server mode:

import epdb; epdb.serve()

By default epdb.serve() will start a simple telnet server on port 8080, but you can use the port keyword argument to use a different port:

import epdb; epdb.serve(port=8888)

You can connect to the epdb server by using epdb.connect():

>>> import epdb
>>> epdb.connect()

By default epdb.connect() will attempt to connect to port 8080 on localhost. If you are debugging a process on another host or port, you can call connect with the host or port keyword arguments:

>>> import epdb
>>> epdb.connect(host='some.host.com', port=8888)
