A fun way to display python errors

Project description

error_cat

A fun way to display python errors.

Do you find long python error tracebacks annoying? Personally, they make me painfully aware of the fact that I don't know what I'm doing. And while that is certainly the case, sometimes I'd like that news to be delivered to me in a nicer way. For that, there is error_cat.

Installation

pip install error_cat

Usage

error_cat python <name of your favorite python script>.py

If <name of your favorite python script>.py runs successfully, you will see a fun, reassuring message from error_cat:

                ________________________
               /                        \
               |   Everything worked!   |
               \  ______________________/
              /  /
 ,_     _    / /
 |\\_,-~/   /'
 / _  _ |    ,--.
(  @  @ )   / ,-'
 \  _T_/-._( (
 /         `. \
|         _  \ |
 \ \ ,  /      |
  || |-_\__   /
 ((_/`(____,-'

On the other hand, if <name of your favorite python script>.py produces an error, error_cat will break the news to you. Here is an example script that will lead to an error:

fake_error.py

def func():
	func2()

def func2():
	print(5 + "5")

func()

Here is what error_cat will tell you:

$ error_cat python fake_error.py

                _________________________________________________________________
               /                                                                 \
               |   File "fake_error.py", line 5, in func2                        |
               |   TypeError: unsupported operand types for +: 'int' and 'str'   |
               \  _______________________________________________________________/
              /  /
 ,_     _    / /
 |\\_,-~/   /'
 / _  _ |    ,--.
(  @  @ )   / ,-'
 \  _T_/-._( (
 /         `. \
|         _  \ |
 \ \ ,  /      |
  || |-_\__   /
 ((_/`(____,-'
