I saw a response in this thread that copied what sure looks like a Python interactive interpreter talking to the API and introspecting it. Can anyone tell me how this was accomplished? I seemingly can't just drop into pdb from a script, but I would LOVE to be in an interactive interprete.

Thanks!

(: I’m making some work in my spare time too:

Live API actively expands. Documentation which laid out by Hanz Petrov (API_MakeDoc) becomes too cumbersome. It is difficult to search, to compare different versions, to understand what features are added, that has changed.

I spent the time and has made more advanced design of this unofficial documentation:

https://nsuspray.github.io/Live_API_Doc/

I have tried to simplify the search and navigation, to make design more accessible. It has a function of comparing different versions with independent displaying additions, changes, matches. I think you will understand.
