breakpoint() function with it. It's nice to know that people are actually using my work and reference it in their articles.

And now I'm glad to announce that my small GitHub pull request was accepted by Kodi core developers. It is a small fix/addition to C++ implementation of Kodi Python API, but I'm still very proud of it because I have been able to make a worthy contribution to such large C++ project.
