Tired of scrolling through long error messages? Check out my package, AbbreviatedStackTraces!
It’s experimental and works by straight overwriting base Julia methods, so it isn’t in the registry.
To try it out:
]add https://github.com/BioTurboNick/AbbreviatedStackTraces.jl using AbbreviatedStackTraces
It works by hiding stack frames that you aren’t likely interested in, all the internals of the various packages you’re using. (But you can see them all by typing
err, and they’re not hidden at all when you’re running a worker process or running Julia code outside of the REPL.)
I think something like this would be really useful to get into Base Julia eventually. But for now, try it out here.
