Here is some code I use that uses the global() parm in manhole.
from twisted.cred import portal,checkers
from twisted.conch import manhole, manhole_ssh
from twisted.application import internet
def ManholeFactory(namespace,**passwords) :
realm = manhole_ssh.TerminalRealm()
def getManhole(_): return manhole.Manhole(namespace)
realm.chainedProtocolFactory.protocolFactory = getManhole
p = portal.Portal(realm)
f = manhole_ssh.ConchFactory(p)
You invoke it like:
# Maybe start the manhole debugging service
ManholeSrv = ManholeService(manholePort,
This will allow me access to everything in my application.
