easiest way is to use print and keep an eye on your bench console.

Thanks, like PHP… :smile:


i use the PyCharm IDE. Has an interactive debugger, so i can step to the file. Works grate for me.

How do you do that?

I use PyCharm too, but I don’t know how to start PyCharm Debug in frappe… I use in Django, Flask or Python scripts, but when I try to use in frappe, doesn’t start… :disappointed:

@fuekor Can you share how you setup frappe to boot/init with pycharm debugger.
Or are you using pycharm’s remote debugging?


sorry for the late reply. Haven’t seen the message before.
I use the following Debug configuration in Pycharm. It runs on my mac in a fusion ubuntu 12.04 environment:

script: /home/fuekor/frappe-bench/env/bin/frappe
script parameters: site1.local --port=8000 --serve_test
Environment Variables: PYTHONUNBUFFERED=1
python interpreter: /frappe-bench/env
working directory:/home/fuekor/frappe-bench/sites
add content path to python roots: yes
add source roots to python path: yes

that works fine for me. I can start the app through the debug button and debug all python files within PyCharm.

Hope that helped you.

Did you get this working?

Hi guys, anyone got pycham debugging frappe and custom doctypes. I cannot get it working on custom doctype, I get redis server message error. Appreciate your help. settings
script: /usr/local/bin/bench
script params : start
python: usr/bin/python 2.7
w/dir: usual frappe bench folder

I been having a nightmare getting this to work in Pycharm as well. Have mine running on a remote server and can’t for the life of me get it debugging correctly.

almost giving up on this which is a shame, check this
if it can be of any help. I could not get it to work though.
