Python Logger plugin to send logs to Logentries

Project description

Logentries Logger

This is a plugin library to enable logging to Logentries from the Python Logger. Logentries is a real-time log management service on the cloud. More info at


To use this library, you must first create an account on Logentries. This will only take a few moments.


To install this library, use the following command:

`pip install logentries`


#!/usr/bin/env python

from logentries import LogentriesHandler
import logging

log = logging.getLogger('logentries')

test = LogentriesHandler(LOGENTRIES_TOKEN)

log.setLevel(logging.INFO) #WARN by default
log.warn("Warning message")


The parameter `LOGENTRIES_TOKEN` needs to be filled in to point to a file in your Logentries account.

In your Logentries account, create a new host, giving it a name that represents your app. Then create a logfile, selecting `Token TCP` as the source_type. This will print a Token UUID
beside the logfile. This is the value to use for `LOGENTRIES_TOKEN`.

You are now ready to start logging
