Apart from a bare
except: clause (which as others have said you shouldn’t use), you can simply catch
import traceback import logging try: whatever() except Exception as e: logging.error(traceback.format_exc()) # Logs the error appropriately.
You would normally only ever consider doing this at the outermost level of your code if for example you wanted to handle any otherwise uncaught exceptions before terminating.
The advantage of
except Exception over the bare
except is that there are a few exceptions that it wont catch, most obviously
SystemExit: if you caught and swallowed those then you could make it hard for anyone to exit your script.
