Debugging options in Sikuli IDE --- not planned --- use PyCharms

Asked by Sandeep on 2020-11-19

Hi Raiman,

First of all thanks for your efforts in maintaining sikuli and providing us regular updates and bug fixes.

I wanted to inquire if you have any plans to introduce advanced debugging options (add breakpoint/examine variables at runtime) in the near future as it is the only thing missing in the IDE.

Have a great day.

Thanks for kind feedback.

Sorry, no, I do not have plans, to add such features to the IDE.

If you really want to debug your scripts, just use PyCharms.

You might use the IDE and PyCharms in parallel:
- the IDE for managing your images, optionally add code and run the script.
- PyCharms to run and debug your script.

The only caveat: If you change the script in PyCharms, you have to close/reopen it in the IDE, since the IDE other than PyCharms does not auto-detect external file changes.

As Jython I recommend to use the version 2.7.2. Just install it manually and configure PyCharms accordingly.

I have on the list, to make this combination a bit more comfortable in version 2.0.5

All the best
