[R] Is there anyone who uses both R and Python here? How do you debug? Perhaps in RStudio?

I'm a long time R user, but recently also using Python. I noticed that
RStudio rolled out Python through reticulate. It's great so far!
My question is, how do you debug in Python?
In R, I simply step through the code script in my console with cmd+enter.
But you can't do that with Python, some of them are objects.
Here's my example.
def __init__(self, id, created_at, name, attend_date, distance):
"""Create a new `person`.
self._id = id
self.created_at = created_at
self.name = name
self.attend_date = attend_date
self.distance = distance
def get_person(self, employee):
"""Find and return a person by.
The error message says self._id was 'str', but expecting an 'int'. I can't
> self._id = 5
I guess it's "hidden". Can't really assign and test like that.
It seems hardcore Python programmers just use a debugger, and do not
understand the greatness of interactive IDE and console. I'd still like to
stay in IDE, hopefully.
So, how are the R users coping with object classes? Do you just instantiate
every time? What if you got 10 of these class person objects to debug?
I know this may be a Python question. But, I really wanted to see from a R
user's working experience.
Thanks a lot,
