A fancy text and logging tool for console applications
A python module made for server applications for formatting and logging
consoleTools: v0.2.1 (stableish - no update since 0.2.0, just a repackage)
OS Support: OS Independant
What am I?
We needed a logging tool and console display tool with a fancy output with colours, so we quickly whipped this together.
Other features will be implemented to this over-time as we need more things in our console apps (main feature is logging).
All logs are stored in
Defaults can be changed in
install-location/consoleTools/core.py with some basic python knowledge.
#Logging and displaying console output from consoleTools import consoleDisplay as cd cd.log('e','I am an error') cd.log('w','I am a warning') cd.log('i','I am an informational message') cd.log('n',"I am a notice and therefore have no formatting as I'm not that important") cd.log('s','Woo-hoo! Your thing worked')
Other non-major items:
- cd.clear() - clear console
- cd.printFile() - print file contents
Questions people asked when making this (but not in their words)
q) I don't want to log to a file
a) There is a no logging flag that defaults to false, specify it as true to disable logging to a file:
cd.log('s','I will not log to a file',True)
Add the boolean flag
True and nothing will be logged to a file
q) I don't want to log to
logs/. Why are you making me do this
a) By adding the simple flag
file="x" you can log to wherever you want there
cd.log('s','I will log to a custom file',file="thisfilecontainsthe.log")
q) I know what happened, but when?
a) The log files contain dates and times - we try and keep the console nice and clean
