See https://github.com/JuliaLang/Pkg.jl/pull/1053. But what’s the purpose? If you want to record the environment you should just store the Project.toml and Manifest.toml files, which is much more complete.

For example, I want to send a list of my version packages to someone.

Hi, I understand this thread is referring to “Basically just add an io field to Context, thread the Context object through a more functions, and make the display stuff use the io field by default.” However, would it be possible to include here the code snippet that is doing this, I mean that is printing the output of Pkg.status() to a text file?

My logging to txt file setup currently:

using Logging
# Open a textfile for writing
io = open("log.txt", "w+")
IOStream("file log.txt")
# Create a simple logger
logger = SimpleLogger(io)
# Set the global logger to logger
# Example of command output printed to log.txt
@info "Sys.CPU_NAME" Sys.CPU_NAME
# Close the file

I understand that to reproduce the environment its better to use Project.toml and Manifest.toml files, however, I am doing some benchmarks and my purpose is just to note the version of packages, thus printing the output of Pkg.status() would be useful. And when trying @info Pkg.status() I am receiving nothing, thus this question.

EDIT: I think I got it:

Pkg.status(; io)
