Addon: BreakPoint


BreakPoint makes debugging your Python scripts easier by allowing you to set - you guessed it - breakpoints, without having to install a full Python debugger.

‘BreakPoint’ is an addon for Blender, developed by Good Spirit Graphics. BreakPoint will allow you to debug your scripts, within Blender, much more easily. Now, there is no need to resort to using a complex IDE like Eclipse every time you have a stubborn bug in your code. BreakPoint allows you to print your variable values to both the Blender Console, and/or to a panel within Blender. BreakPoint also allows you to set conditional ‘breaks’ in your code very easily. Finally, you can enable, and disable Breakpoint, from the BreakPoint panel, with the push of a button. There is no need to repeatedly comment, and un-comment your ‘print’ statements every time you want to check something.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
