This project is being split into 3 separate projects:

  • friendly_traceback,

  • friendly_idle.

The documentation does not reflect this change.

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

The more cases friendly will include, the more useful it will be. If you have used friendly and come accross a situation where it either did not know how to deal with a given exception type, or could not provide an appropriate explanation, please file an issue.

Ideally, you should include the code sample that give rise to that exception and an explanation that would be understandable by beginners and helpful to them to understand what that exception means. Please include which version of Python and friendly you are using.
