Depending on your experience or skill level, you may be unaware that there are different python visualizer options when you run your code. In this post, I will cover a few that you may not have heard of. And all of which can help you in your future programming endeavors.
A visualizer is something that allows you to see something. That can be a graph, heat map, or something similar that allows you to get a different perspective of data. Things like this online visualizer exist to show you what’s happening when you execute your code.
However, this is not to be confused with data visualization. That term refers to the graphical representation of information and data.
While TECHNICALLY code execution visualizers can be considered data visualization, you are not providing visuals on data. Merely on what is happening with your code execution.
Even more advanced programmers leverage tools like code execution visualizers.
So whether you’re a newbie or an expert, I hope these additional python visualizer modules will benefit you moving forward.
Printing Better Exceptions
When it comes to programming, you are bound to run into issues where exceptions are generated. In this python visualizer module, you will gain deeper insight into the how, why, and where an exception was raised.
The video below is a cool trick to share regarding visualizing your python code. It is one option for a python visualizer.

Now, when it comes to python code? Being pythonic doesn’t mean you are exempt from errors. And whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned developer, sometimes it can be tricky to know what’s going on at run time.
While I got my degree in computer science, I was not taught python. Python was a language I taught myself & utilized to help over 1,500 people in Cisco improve their python and data science skills. But Python, just like all languages, is more than just a way to code. And until you’re introduced to some of these add-ons, you have to figure it out the hard way.
For example – while I was an internal tools developer in Cisco TAC (Technical Assistance Center) I created a way with which I could log errors & more easily locate where in the code the real issue was. At the time, I was unaware of things like pytest and Test Driven Development – let alone a python visualizer.
So I created a process or system in which to set myself up for greater software development success.
Had I known about this little trick that I’m about to share with you?
Could have saved me a lot of time!
So in today’s Prosperous Heart programming training, I will share with you one of the many features of a package called loguru.
And there you have it!
Print Lines Of Code Being Executed
As mentioned in the last part, sometimes it can be tricky to know what’s going on at run time.
And had I known about this little trick that I’m about to share with you?
It REALLY could have saved me a lot of time!
So in today’s Prosperous Heart programming training, I will share with you one of the many features of a package called snoop.

Execution Of A Program In Real Time
Unfortunately, the third python visualizer for code execution didn’t work with sleep, as per the issue I raised.
Once I am able to find out how to resolve, I will do another training on this. Until then, the below video is also found in my post about open source.
These are definitely helpful for so many reasons. Will you start using them in your coding practices?
