excoverflow

This package adds links to google and stackoverflow search results to the end of uncaught exceptions in Python. It should work with either Python 2 or 3.

To install:

pip install excoverflow

To use, simply import the package in any project file for which you want internet results pages printed after the exception.

import excoverflow

Unhandled exception output will be appended with links to google and stackoverflow search results for python, the exception type, and the exception message; e.g.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "test.py", line 5, in <module>
    val = 5 / 0
ZeroDivisionError: division by zero
