This project is being split into 3 separate projects:

  • friendly_traceback,

  • friendly, and

  • friendly_idle.

The documentation does not reflect this change.

If you are a end-user, just install friendly until further notice.

IPython’s console

Friendly can be used together with IPython when running in a terminal, by using:

from friendly.ipython import *

Being able to integrate with IPython exception handling means that friendly can be used with Jupyter notebooks. Furthermore, it can also be used with Mu’s REPL which is a Jupyter console based on IPython.
