Errors when trying the new package manager (0.7)

pkg

#1

I’m trying out the new package manager, but get stuck following the docs here: https://docs.julialang.org/en/latest/stdlib/Pkg.html#Adding-packages-to-the-project-1

julia> import HelloWorld

julia> HelloWorld.greet()
Hello World!

Similarly on the next step:

Also the same thing happens when trying to install a package “normally”, i.e. not inside a “project”.


Add Revise fails

Something seems strange with your registry. Can you try to remove .julia/registries and try again.

This is what I get:

Add Revise fails

Yes, I think that was it. After doing a git pull in .julia/registries/Uncurated it now seems to work. I suspect I had a few month old version of the registries.

I have another one now:

Loading Revise should work now. A new Compat had to be tagged and propagated to the registry.

I’ll look into the precompile problem.


#5

Ok, now with Compat at 0.65.1 the using ... works, but yes the precompile still errors. Thanks!

That PR works for me, thanks!
