Debugging Activity Watch in PyCharm

Hi everyone,

I wanted to try to make some changes myself as the app is not working that well for MacOS. I installed AW from source code and I would like to run it directly from my PyCharm IDE to set some stop points and see what is happening.

How do you guys debug the code?

Sorry if my question is too simple, but i could not find the answer anywhere.


We usually only debug with prints and unit tests. A debugger is sometimes nice to have, but when developing for ActivityWatch I’ve never really felt a need for a debugger. But it should be easy to set up.

Can i find somewhere kind of a tutorial of how you debug? Or is this tribal knowledge?
