A full-screen, console-based Python debugger

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/inducer/pudb.svg?branch=master

PuDB is a full-screen, console-based visual debugger for Python.

Its goal is to provide all the niceties of modern GUI-based debuggers in a more lightweight and keyboard-friendly package. PuDB allows you to debug code right where you write and test it–in a terminal. If you’ve worked with the excellent (but nowadays ancient) DOS-based Turbo Pascal or C tools, PuDB’s UI might look familiar.

Here’s a screenshot:

You may watch a screencast, too.

Features

  • Syntax-highlighted source, the stack, breakpoints and variables are all visible at once and continuously updated. This helps you be more aware of what’s going on in your program. Variable displays can be expanded, collapsed and have various customization options.
  • Simple, keyboard-based navigation using single keystrokes makes debugging quick and easy. PuDB understands cursor-keys and Vi shortcuts for navigation. Other keys are inspired by the corresponding pdb commands.
  • Use search to find relevant source code, or use “m” to invoke the module browser that shows loaded modules, lets you load new ones and reload existing ones.
  • Breakpoints can be set just by pointing at a source line and hitting “b” and then edited visually in the breakpoints window. Or hit “t” to run to the line under the cursor.
  • Drop to a Python shell in the current environment by pressing “!”.
  • PuDB places special emphasis on exception handling. A post-mortem mode makes it easy to retrace a crashing program’s last steps.
  • IPython integration (see wiki)
  • Should work with Python 2.6 and newer, including Python 3.
