Python UNO Bindings

UNO bindings for the Python programming language.

To have much joy debugging Python extensions you need to:

Then you’ll start to see your exceptions on the console instead of them getting lost at the UNO interface.

Python also comes with a gdb script libpython$(PYTHON_VERSION_MAJOR).$(PYTHON_VERSION_MINOR)m.so.1.0-gdb.py that is copied to instdir and will be auto-loaded by gdb; it provides commands like py-bt to get a Python-level backtrace, and py-print to print Python variables.

Another way to debug Python code is to use pdb: edit some initialization function to insert import pdb; pdb.set_trace() (somewhere so that it is executed early), then run soffice from a terminal and a command-line Python debugger will appear where you can set Python-level breakpoints.
