Compress user and location of stdlib/sitepackage.
That should make traceback identical on all machines, hopefully making
Google a bit better at finding them, and a little less wide in many

The drawback is that filename are not copy-pastable to edit files, unless
situated somewhere not in site packages but that should be the case for
most dev install, so I expect that to not bother many people.

@takluyver I feel like you will be opinionated on this one.

I'm flexible on the naming and what we compress, but I think it would be great to do that.

I'm happy enough to use the compress_user function to abbreviate the home directory as ~. That saves some space, and you can still copy and paste the path to open it, at least on Unix.

I'm not convinced on $STDLIB, $SITE-PACKAGES, etc. I don't really like the separate delimited block at the top explaining variables. I don't like the $SUGGESTION that these are environment variables or shell variables. And both the standard library and site-packages can be in multiple locations (e.g. virtualenvs, Debian's dist-packages directories), so the simplifications won't work consistently.

@takluyver I feel like you will be opinionated on this one.

It's like you know me! 😛


What makes the line so long is having the path and the function signature in one line. From your example, histogram(a, bins, range, normed, weights, density) is already 51 characters, so with the in, you only have 25 characters for the path before you hit 80 columns. What about putting them on separate lines:

  in histogram(a, bins, range, normed, weights, density)

There the first line is only 65 characters.

We could either do this on every frame (simple and consistent), or only where the single line would exceed some length (so in bar() would still be on one line).

Yeah, I though about a large refactoring of traceback, you can even omit the filename if two consecutive frames have the same file, and I don't want to go this route (for now), counting line length with current architecture would be a pain.

I've push a simpler commit that just compress_user, and I'm fine delaying any other refactoring for later. If you think of any better layout please let me know.

How does that sounds ?

Sounds reasonable. Let's go with compress_user and see how we get on.
