remote-pdb 1.2.0

Remote vanilla PDB (over TCP sockets).


Remote vanilla PDB (over TCP sockets) done right: no extras, proper handling around connection failures and CI. Based on pdbx.

  • Free software: BSD license


To open a remote PDB on first available port:

from remote_pdb import set_trace
set_trace() # you'll see the port number in the logs

To use some specific host/port:

from remote_pdb import RemotePdb
RemotePdb('', 4444).set_trace()

To connect just run telnet 4444. When you are finished debugging, either exit the debugger, or press Control-], then Control-d.

Alternately, one can connect with NetCat: nc -C 4444 or Socat: socat socat readline tcp: (for line editing and history support). When finished debugging, either exit the debugger, or press Control-c.


Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 and PyPy are supported.
