pip install bugbuzz
then insert following lines in your code to debug
import bugbuzz; bugbuzz.set_trace()
As bugbuzz providing debugging in a software-as-service manner, all source code and local variables needed will be uploaded to the server. When a debugging session created, a random secret access key will be generated, and used for encryping all source code and local variables. The access key will be passed to dashboard as a part of hash tag like this
With the access key, the Ember.js dashboard app can then decrypt the source code and local variables downloaded from the server. As the access key is passed as part of hash in the URL, the server cannot see it, without the access key, your source code and local variables are not visible by the server.
For more details about security topic, you can also read my article Anonymous computing: Peer-to-peer encryption with Ember.js.
To run our demo
git clone --recursive firstname.lastname@example.org:fangpenlin/bugbuzz-python.git
install the project
virtualenv --no-site-packages .env source .env/bin/activate pip install -e .
and dependency used in the
pip install requests
It will open a new tab in your browser for debugging.
Run with local API server and dashboard instead
By default, bugbuzz uses
bugbuzz-api.herokuapp.com as the API server and
dashboard.bugbuzz.io as the dashboard. To change this behavior, you can specify environment variables
- BUGBUZZ_API: URL for the API server
- BUGBUZZ_DASHBOARD: URL for the dashboard
For example, you are running API server and the dashboard locally at
http://localhost:4200, then you can run bugbuzz like this
BUGBUZZ_API='http://localhost:9090' BUGBUZZ_DASHBOARD='http://localhost:4200' python demo.py
This is just a prototype, use it at your own risk
