Python debugger for VSCode

Please refer to the following document for instructions on setting up remote debugging.


  • Install ptvsd library
  • Add code below to the startup .py file, replacing the passphrase and port number as desired.

import ptvsd
ptvsd.enable_attach(“my_secret”, address = (‘’, 3000))

  • In VSCode, set "vs-squash.pythonSecret" to the correct passphrase ("my_secret" in this case) in the workspace settings file (select “Preferences”, “Settings” and click on the “Workspace Settings” tab)
