tracebackturbo

This is an improved traceback module for Python. When logging stack traces, it dumps the local variable scope aside the normal stack trace.

Usage

import tracebackturbo as traceback

def erroneous_function():
    ham = u"unicode string with umlauts äöü."
    eggs = "binary string with umlauts äöü."
    i = 23
    if i>5:
        raise Exception("it's a trap!")

try:
    erroneous_function()
except:
    print traceback.format_exc(with_vars=True)

Sample Output

Traceback Turbo (most recent call last):
  File "test.py", line 11, in 
    Local variables:
      __builtins__ = 
      __doc__ = None
      __file__ = "x"
      __name__ = "__main__"
      __package__ = None
      erroneous_function = 
      traceback = <module 'tracebackturbo' from '/private/tmp/python-...
    erroneous_function()
  File "test.py", line 8, in erroneous_function
    Local variables:
      eggs = "binary string with umlauts \xc3\xa4\xc3\xb6\xc3\xbc."
      ham = u"unicode string with umlauts ???."
      i = 23
    raise Exception("it's a trap!")
Exception: it's a trap!

Setup

To setup tracebackturbo, simply drop the script in your working directory or install the egg from pypi:
