Debugging python with vim in a virtualenv

Yay I finally got it working my debugging of a python script with Vdebug in vim
Vdebug is a vim plugin that lets you debug all kinds of scripts/languages in vim.
It supports these languages:
Python
Perl
PHP
Ruby
Node.js

At work I use it to debug Perl code and I wanted to use it to debug my python code for personal projects.

the key is: pip install  komodo-python-dbgp within your virtualenv once that is done it will create the executable pydbgp in your virtualenv. so you can launch in vim vdbug and then in the shell:
pydbgp <script>
