Debugging Your ApplicationΒΆ

When writing your application you will want to turn on debugging mode.

import rumps

If you are running your program from the interpreter, you should see the informational messages.

python {your app name}.py

If testing the .app generated using py2app, to be able to see these messages you must not,

open {your app name}.app

but instead run the executable. While within the directory containing the .app,

./{your app name}.app/Contents/MacOS/{your app name}

And, by default, your .app will be in dist folder after running python py2app. So of course that would then be,

./dist/{your app name}.app/Contents/MacOS/{your app name}
