Developing for Splunk Enterprise

Python script develop/debug tools

Path Finder

Hello,

I find it quite exhausting to use notepad++ for writing a pyhton script for Splunk . Any mistake takes a lot to debug (by opening splunkd.log) and fix .Plus there are a lot of typos and API misuse that go undetected into runtime problems. Being a beginner with Python I am wondering, is there any alternative available to optimize the developing/debuggin process ?

Thanks

Hi rantravee,

being a Python beginner as well, I'm also using notepad++ and run the script like

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk cmd python $PATH_TO_YOUR_SCRIPT

In case of any error I got useful debug feedback so far. Maybe you can try the Python Debugger and see if this is more useful in your case.

hope this helps...

cheers, MuS
