Add Revise fails

question

#1

I am just trying out Pkg(3), and I am somewhat confused because I expected this to work:

julia> VERSION
v"0.7.0-alpha.20"

(v0.7) pkg> up
 Resolving package versions...

(v0.7) pkg> add Revise
ERROR: The following package names could not be resolved:
 * Revise (not found in project, manifest or registry)
Please specify by known `name=uuid`.

since Revise is in Uncurated. What am I missing?


#2

Do you have Uncurated in ~/.julia/registries/?


#3

No, what’s the recommended way of adding it?


#4

Looks like Errors when trying the new package manager (0.7) with solution:


#5

I wonder why people keep getting empty registry folders. Should warn of do something else about that.


#6

Probably leftover from very early experimentation with Pkg3 in my case.
