Is there a way to quietly install packages through Pkg? Normally, this is not an issue on my own computer, but the output that I get setting up an environment in Google Colab is a lot, so much that not all of it can be stored in the notebook, and is the same every time I restart the notebook.
You should be able to set
io=devnull in the main Pkg functions to suppress output
julia> import Pkg julia> Pkg.add("Foo”, io=devnull)
This works for hiding most of the output, but I’m still seeing the downloading of artifacts
Downloading artifact: Libglvnd Downloaded artifact: Libglvnd Downloading artifact: LAME Downloaded artifact: LAME Downloading artifact: Xorg_libxkbfile Downloaded artifact: Xorg_libxkbfile
Plots on a fresh Julia installation has upwards of 50 of these
Any printing should be a bug, so an issue to Pkg.jl would be worth doing
Is there a way to output only errors( if they appear) during package installation instead of just dumping everything to devenull?
