Jumpstart your Angular applications with Indigo.Design, a unified platform for visual design, UX prototyping, code generation, and app development.

The DTrace plugin for NetBeans IDE brings the DTrace Toolkit and DTrace Chime to NetBeans on OpenSolaris. The DTrace toolkit ships with some utility scripts to talk with the Python DTrace providers.

Once you have installed the DTrace plugin, open Window > DTrace and in the Toolkit tab, choose Python:

You can see the various D scripts there. Let us take the script, 'py_calltime.d', which will collect and display the time in us taken by each function call for a particular running Python process, whose PID you can supply during the run of the script, or start a Python process.

With the ever developing Python support for NetBeans, you can start having some fun with Python, NetBeans and DTrace.

Take a look at an Indigo.Design sample application to learn more about how apps are created with design to code software.
