Well, I just spent half a day of this precious human life getting our lesson notebooks to run in PyCharm. Only to find out…wait for it…that PyCharm has never implemented debugging for notebooks. This has been an active request since March 2016.
So may I ask some knowlegeable person to respond to my plea? I have already spent too many years doing terminal-based editing and debugging, and strongly prefer never to go back to it. When Think Pascal was first published, it was a liberation of time and creativity.
My needs are basic: navigate and explore source code efficiently; trace, use breakpoints, and examine variables during execution.
Is there such a visual debugger in the Python/Jupyter world, one that you know works from actual experience? This is all local to Ubuntu 16.04 with Nvidia GPU. My sincere thanks in advance and afterwards!
P.S. One work around could be to transcribe the lesson notebooks into plain .py files. But I’d much rather use a debugger that works right with notebooks.
