Re: [DCPython] debugging in python

Just to add a few more alternatives to the mix, there is pdbpp ( which is a drop-in replacement for pdb that enhances it similar to ipdb, although I've never used ipdb.  pdbpp has a "sticky" mode that lets you step through the code in context, which is my favorite feature.
As far as IDEs, I've use Aptana ( which is an Eclipse-based IDE with Python features for debugging and some custom support for Django and App Engine projects.

Ditto regarding great deal of Python debugging is done via a solid Python IDE- 

Python IDEs =>  - Komodo - Pycharm - Wingware - Ninja - Cloud9 - --- Cloud9 IDE has solid integration with GitHub - though of note you need to do the following on cloud9 for Python 2.7.3 

c9pm install python27
c9pm install pip

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?
