I want to make an addon that, while editing in ArcMap, will track where I pan and move the viewport. I have the pieces together, but I don't like debugging with the Python Add-In wizard, because I have to recompile and restart ArcMap each time I modify the code.
Is there another way to create this type of 'persistent' script without using an add-in? If I make a toolbox tool and run it, will it run in the background, and how would I stop it? All the toolbox tools I've ever created have a certain task they perform and, once completed, the tool stops running. Same with ModelBuilder.
