Please search existing issues to avoid duplicates.


  • Atom version: 1.37
  • Julia version: 1.3
  • OS: Mac, Mojave
  • Package versions:
    • Atom.jl: 0.8.7
    • julia-client: 0.8.9
    • ink: 0.10.10

Steps to reproduce

Not reproducible in a deterministic way afaict. It only happened once to me thus far.

My context:

  • start new julia session
  • using LiveServer.jl
  • start server
  • shutting down server with CTRL+C (interrupt signal)
  • got a red bubble (cf below) with stacktrace:

Here is another occurrence (without the red warning box) that happened when hitting CTRL+C while writing a string. The two stacktraces are different so it may be unrelated apart from the fact that the error was triggered after an interrupt.

Hm, if you interrupt Juno while we're doing some internal work then this happens, yes, but I'm not sure what to do about it. Could look into making the communication task un-interruptible, maybe, but occasionally that's pretty useful too... (unless it crashes Julia, of course).

Fair enough, thanks.

Would you know a way to catch this more or less cleanly on the package side?

Or more generally would you have an idea of how to have long-running loops that are expected to be eventually killed by the user (e.g. HTTP's listen loop) isolated from their environment in such a way that this doesn't happen? I tried wrapping things in an async task but catching an interrupt properly and forwarding it to a task is currently a PITA as far as I could see (and I don't think it circumvents the issue).

thanks (and I guess this issue can be closed)

I'd suggest running the HTTP serve in the Juno REPL, that way interrupts are much more likely to end up in the right place in my experience. Or you start the serve in a async task and explicitly kill that (not with ^C).

Also let's leave this open for now as a reminder that Juno should be smarter about interrupt handling ;)

This should be fixed now, btw.
