Setting up a dev environment with Eclipse ad PyDev
#1
I'm a tad stuck following this: HOW-TO:Debug_Python_Scripts_with_Eclipse (wiki)

It's way dated. I work fluidly with Eclipse and PyDev all the time, i.e. already have that dev environment in regular use.

Now I'd like to apply it to a little Kodi Addon work but that tutorial is a maze of deprecated tips.

2.3.5 Setting up Predefined Completions (optional)

Optional so I won't fuss with it too much for now. Still flagging that  'PyDev Predefined Completions Creator' Addon cannot for love or money be found. I found a copy here:

https://kodi-addons.club/addon/script.pypredefcom/

which even claims to be Kodi 18 compatible, bu no. I tweaked it to install at all (shifting its xmbc.python import from 2.0 to 2.14.0 that Kodi 18.3 seems to use) . But when run it bombs with an error saying to check logs. Which I'll dwell on later (as when i turn on the debug log it's flooded fast as I happen to me importing a mass of media at same time so I will wait for that to die down, point here being that this addon is a mystery, and if it does live somewhere, we'd love to find it and update that wiki!)

3.4 Add Pydev Python source code (pysrc) to XBMC

Now this is a little more important. And it concludes with a little note:
Quote:In new Eclipse versions on Linux, the standard eclipse installation (/usr/share/eclipse/plugins) does not contain the pydev files any more. The easiest solution is to install the pydevd-addon.
To access this from your addon, your addon.xml has to contain 
<import addon="script.module.pydevd" version="3.4.1"/>

Which refers to this: Add-on:Pydevd (wiki)

But again, this addon I cannot find, for love or money. Where is it?

I would love to get this rolling, but it seems I need the pydevd addon and don't know where to look for it or how it install it.

Regards,

Bernd.

Is there no-one that is using PyDev today that wants to pipe up on how to set this up and help us update that wiki page so it actually helps us?

Try asking in the developer add-on subforum.  I suspect you will get better response there.
