import asyncio
import functools

def foo(x): raise Exception()

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
loop.call_soon(functools.partial(foo, x=1))

Current error message:
    Exception in callback foo()() at ...:4

Expected error message:
    Exception in callback foo(x=1)() at ...:4

Oh, wow. I didn't even know we special-case partial() there. In general we tend to focus more on positional arguments (since asyncio intentionally doesn't take keyword args for callbacks) but I see no reason why we couldn't add this here. Maybe you're interested in writing a patch yourself? You could do it as a PR for the "upstream" git repo

I wrote the code doing that. I did it to get more readable and shorter logs since asyncio produces a lot of logs.


    Exception in callback print("Hello", "World!")() at ...:4

without special case:

    Exception in functools.partial(<built-in function print>, 'Hello', 'World!') at ...:4
