Package debugging

  • retag add tags

I am writing a system that contains two packages. I want to set it up, perhaps with File Properties?, where if I start debug in any of the parts of the packages that the system runs "-m package args..." for any of the individual modules in the package.

Is there a way to set up two Launch Configurations that I can assign the the individual files in each package?

The Environment under Debug/Execute in File Properties can be set to Launch with 'python -m' for any file. Also, you can create a Named Entry Point from the Debug menu and use the "Named Module" option to run a module by name from that. So probably if I'm understanding your question correctly you would create two Named Entry Points, one for each package.

Named Module works perfectly, thank you!
