How do I debug remote python/twisted code from within Emacs?

The closest I got with an internet search was Geben, if I understand correctly, but it has not been maintained for a few years now.

You can try qdb


An emacs interface (qbd.el) is included: https://github.com/quantopian/qdb/tree/master/client/emacs


I do not write python code in Emacs, but I would try pdb (Emacs built-in python debugger) on a remote python file.

  • Thanks! i would like to control the debugging through my local files. It can be done in WingIDE for example. Sep 16, 2015 at 19:47
