In ros 1, there was a useful package called angles.

I was wondering if this was still in ROS 2 Dashing?

I cannot find it with ros2 pkg find or in the share directory.

Was this package replaced by something else?

Angles is released into dashing. ros2 pkg find and your share directory will only indicate packages that you have installed on your system.

The best place to look for packages is on I found it here:

If you're using debian packages you can install it with sudo apt-get install ros-dashing-angles

I'm always running into this sort of "is there an x package for ros2". I always try to search my package manager to see if it has an 'x' lookin' package availabe, e.g. for for finding ros-dashing-angles on ubuntu you can use sudo apt-cache search angles

Yes, the angles package is available in ROS2.

It's a separate branch named ros2in the same repository of the ROS code

Note that it has not been updated in a while, but it was working fine with ROS2 Crystal.
