    1. I have a bunch of long-running python psesocres deployed. Is there are a ready-made solution to include the debug server/agent into my process and have pycharm connect to the agent later?For now I’ll probably hack up some socket listener that starts debug agent when it receives a connection on magic port, or perhaps a magic signal.

  1. 2. Install the Pydev by just following the instructions is the most important step and you haven’t explained it.
