Debugging takes time and effort.
Instead of chasing bugs with a debugger, consider spending more time on making your code better by:
- Write and run Tests. Python and Django have great builtin testing frameworks - that can be used to test your code much faster than manually with a debugger.
- Writing proper documentation for your functions, classes and modules. PEP 257 and
Google's Python Style Guide supplies good practices for writing good docstrings.
- Use Logging to produce output from your program - during development and after deploying.
assertions to your code in important places: Reduce ambiguity, catch problems as they are created.
Bonus: Write doctests for combining documentation and testing!
