Broken incremental compilation for Plots

question

#1

I’m getting the following incremental compilation warning from __precompile()ing a module that is using Plots:

The offending file is here.

Thank you @kristoffer.carlsson!

Do you need to depend on Plots - couldn’t you just use RecipesBase?

I’d love to. But this is for a specific user who is not going to want to plot any (of my) specialized types on her/his own. They just want to point at a (specific metadata) file and have “the program” (i.e. Julia) generate mp4 files. So while I could create a recipe for this, it would only be used within the same module. Or maybe I misunderstood you (like one place where I should/could script some recipes is RayTraceEllipsoid.jl).
