[IPython-user] Test in code at runtime if inside ipython?
Mon Feb 15 07:31:28 CST 2010
I like to log errors in my programs like this:
def log_exception(exc_type, exc_obj, exc_tb):
"Log an exception. Used as replacement for sys.excepthook."
exc_info = traceback.format_exception(exc_type, exc_obj, exc_tb)
for l in exc_info:
sys.excepthook = log_exception # make sure we log exceptions. This
doesn't work if running under ipython.
Unfortunately it doesn't work under ipython as sys.excepthook is never
reached. Can I insert my log_exception function into the code that is
called by ipython? Or can I test at runtime whether I am inside an
ipython shell so that I could do something like the following:
if in ipython:
Thanks for a great python shell!
