Try PyChecker, it is a static analysis tool that finds bugs in Python source code and much more.

PyChecker Website:

PyLint is another tool that checks if a module satisfies a coding standard, and also makes it possible to write plug-ins to add custom features. In addition to the bug checking that PyChecker performs, PyLint offers some additional features such as checking line length, whether variable names are well-formed according to your coding standard, whether declared interfaces are fully implemented, and more.

In addition to static checkers , for runtime debugging you can use the pdb tool.

It has all the standard breakpoint/watchpoint and step running features to analyse the python code in runtime at a granular level.

Also is there a way to detect if the user presses a key in Python that works on most OS's? I've only seen 1 method and that only works in Python 2.6 and less. If you get the key, can you store it in a variable?

Is there a way to use pdb to debug Google apps written in Python? When I start the development system to run the app "test" like this -

'./google_appengine/ ./test'

  • I'd like to send the program into debug. I couldn't see anything in the documentation how to do this. If I do this - python -mpdb './google_appengine/' './test'
  • then goes into debug but doesn't know anything about "test".
