When I load IGraph/M, it prints an annoying startup message. How can I avoid this?

  • $\begingroup$ @ChrisK Yes, it's basically that. I posted this as a guide for IGraph/M users, some of whom are annoyed by the message. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Apr 1 at 15:15

    $\begingroup$ That startup message is not annoying. -1 from me. $\endgroup$ – QuantumDot Apr 1 at 18:20

Simply suppress the output with a semicolon. The recommended way to load it is with Needs:


One can use a semicolon with Get as well. << is just a shorthand for Get.


If you load it as a dependency of another package,

BeginPackage["MyPackage`", {"IGraphM`"}]

then nothing needs to be done. The message will not be printed.

This works only in recent versions, which return the message instead of Printing it: https://mathematica.stackexchange.com/a/200578/12
