Why would you want to use pudb?

* Easy to use!
* Syntax Highlighting
* Offers better situational awareness than CLI-based debuggers
* Single keystroke for most commands
* Self-documenting
* Set breakpoints visually
* Easy access to a Python shell

Getting Started

To start debugging, simply insert::

from pudb import set_trace; set_trace()

into the piece of code you want to debug, or run the entire script with::

python -m

Getting the Development Version

You may obtain the development version using the `Git <>`_
version control tool.::

git clone

You may also `browse the code <>`_ online.

PuDB relies on the following excellent pieces of software:

* Ian Ward's `urwid <>`_ console UI library
* Georg Brandl's `pygments <>`_ syntax highlighter
