Enable remote debugging with winpdb in Zope / Plone
z3c.winpdb is a trivial package that calls rpbd2.start_embedded_debugger when IDatabaseOpenedWithRootEvent is fired during the startup of the Zope / Plone instance thus making it possible to debug the running instance with winpdb.
Two environment variables are evaluated:
RPDB2_ENABLE must be set to “true” for start_embedded_debugger to be called. You most probably don’t want this in a production environment. Default is “false”.
In RPDB2_PASSWD you can set the password needed to attach winpdb to the embedded debugger. Default is “passwd”.
You can’t use z3c.winpdb and use python profiling concurrently, as this causes an infinite recursion in rpdb2’s CDebuggerCoreThread.profile_recursion method. So if you use z3c.winpdb make sure to remove any publisher-profile-file directive from zope.conf file.
