How can I check out a pull request?

I would like to try:

How can I install it in Julia on Linux?

if you already have the original pkg deved or git cloned somewhere, cd there and:

git remote add somefork
git fetch
git switch use-pkg-registry-api

actually, it’s probably easier if you just use Julia Pkg:

] dev

then cd to ~/.julia/dev/PkgDeps/ and run

git switch use-pkg-registry-api

(you may need to ]resolve afterwards)

Thanks for your explanation!

It did not solve my original problem, though. All I want is to be able to use the package “PackageAnalyzer”. It does not work with Julia 1.7 without the pull request mentioned above.
Bug report: Deal with compressed registry in Julia v1.7 · Issue #67 · JuliaEcosystem/PackageAnalyzer.jl · GitHub

I still get this error message:
"julia> analyze("DataFrames")
ERROR: ArgumentError: collection must be non-empty
 [1] first
   @ ./abstractarray.jl:419 [inlined]
 [2] general_registry

Any idea?

check ]st to see if you’re using your local copy correctly ?

You can also use GitHubs official CLI tool gh (I like it a lot). Specifically, you clone the repo as usual and then simply run

gh pr checkout 39
