Remote vanilla PDB (over TCP sockets).
Remote vanilla PDB (over TCP sockets) done right: no extras, proper handling around connection failures and CI. Based on pdbx.
To open a remote PDB on first available port:
from remote_pdb import set_trace set_trace() # you'll see the port number in the logs
To use some specific host/port:
from remote_pdb import RemotePdb RemotePdb('127.0.0.1', 4444).set_trace()
To connect just run telnet 127.0.0.1 4444. When you are finished debugging, either exit the debugger, or press Control-], then Control-d.
Alternately, one can connect with NetCat: nc -C 127.0.0.1 4444. When finished debugging, either exit the debugger, or press Control-c.
Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 and PyPy are supported.
