[Fixed]-Why is Standard Input is not displayed as I type in Mac OS X Terminal application?


Maybe this is because there was an error while running Django. Sometimes it happens that the std input disappears because stty was used. You can manually hide your input by typing:

$ stty -echo

Now you won’t see what you typed. To restore this and solve your problem just type

$ stty echo

This could help.



If you exit pdb you can type reset and standard input echo will return. I’m not sure if you can execute something similar within pdb. It will erase what is currently displayed however.


Try installing readline on Mac OS X:

$ sudo easy_install readline

This is a blind guess, but perhaps it solves your problem.
