Re: [DCPython] debugging in python

The closest thing I can think of to the Chrome debugger (including the breakpoint feature) is pudb. I've used it a couple of times, but I usually just stick with ipdb.

Hi all,

Off and on over the years I have attempted to learn how to use the python debugger, but have always found the learning curve just a bit too steep. However, I have been doing most of my recent web development with javascript which finally introduced me to the wonders that are debuggers. Chrome has an incredibly easy-to-use graphical debugger that makes it a snap to figure out exactly where my code is going wrong. Now that I'm returning to some serious python programming I dread every bug I find.

Is there a graphical debugger for python? Even if not, could someone point me to a good introduction to python debugging.

Would someone perchance be interested in doing a presentation on debugging in python?

For the most part this has fallen into the domain of Python IDEs. I use PyCharm and the graphical debugging is strong. Other IDEs are equally good at graphical debugging.
