When I am reading the log, I am always stripping base path from log messages to decrease redundancy. I am doing this by using find/replace in text editor. It is a bit annoying to do this every time, so here is little patch to do it automatically during logging.

Thanks for the patch. I reworked it and committed in a72d941. Changes:

  • Base path is now stripped from stack_info tracebacks as well as exceptions.
  • The search string is a bit more specific to avoid accidentally stripping the base path from other places; e.g. raising an exception which includes the base path. It's technically still not 100% safe, but this shouldn't ever be an issue in reality.
