A fancy text and logging tool for console applications

Project description


A python module made for server applications for formatting and logging

consoleTools: v0.1.5 (non-stable)

Packaged: No

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.

All logs are stored in logs/date-log.txt


#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 information 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')

Questions people asked when making this (but not in their words)

q) B... b... but I don't want it to log to a file Brendan!

a) Well the #### you, we added that:

cd.log('s','I will not log to a file',False)

Add the boolean flag False 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 set whatever 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 - just keeping the console nice and clean

Getting Console Tools


Console tools is easy to install via pip: pip install Console-Tools


Grab this version (may not function at all/function correctly) git clone pip install -r requirements.txt (Optional) - Access the module globally: Move the consoleTools folder to Python37\Lib\site-packages


We upload a beta (partially stable) version to PyPI test. python -m pip install --index-url Console-Tools
