Remotely accessible IPython-enabled debugger

Project Description

Package Description

ripdb is a wrapper around the IPython debugger that enables one to connect to and control the debugger remotely via a socket handler. It combines the functionality of ipdb and rpdb in a single package.


After installation, include the following in your code:

import ripdb

This will start the debugger on port 4444 by default; to use a different port instantiate the debugger as follows:

import ripdb

Connect to the debugger using telnet, netcat, or socat. If you want to enable line completion and editing, you need to disable several terminal features before connecting:

SAVED_STTY=`stty -g`; stty -icanon -opost -echo -echoe -echok -echoctl
-echoke; nc 4444; stty $SAVED_STTY


The latest release of the package may be obtained from GitHub.
