IPython pdb

Use

from ipdb import set_trace; set_trace()

or

from ipdb import pm; pm()

You then get all IPython features (tab completion, syntax highlighting, better tracebacks, better introspection) right in pdb.

If you install ipdb with a tool which supports setuptools entry points, an ipdb script is made for you. You can use it to debug your scripts like

$ bin/ipdb mymodule.py

With Python 2.7 only, you can also use

$ python -m ipdb mymodule.py

Development

ipdb source code and tracker are at https://github.com/gotcha/ipdb.

Third-party support

Products.PDBDebugMode

Zope2 Products.PDBDebugMode uses ipdb, if available, in place of pdb.

iw.debug

iw.debug allows you to trigger an ipdb debugger on any published object of a Zope2 application.

ipdbplugin

ipdbplugin is a nose test runner plugin that also uses the IPython debugger instead of pdb. (It does not depend on ipdb anymore).
