This is a simple library to configure logging from command line argument when using argparse.

Project description


This is a simple library to configure logging from command line argument when using argparse.

Without argparse_logging:

from argparse import ArgumentParser

parser = ArgumentParser()
    type=lambda x: getattr(logging, x)),
    help="Configure the logging level.",
args = parser.parse_args()

This is a bit annoying to copy paste in every program.

Instead you can use argparse_logging to get the following:

from argparse import ArgumentParser
from argparse_logging import add_log_level_argument

parser = ArgumentParser()
args = parser.parse_args()


You will need git, pipenv, python, pre-commit. Then you can set up your virtual environment:

$ git clone
$ cd argparse_logging
$ pipenv update --dev

Do whatever changes you want. You can run the tests and linting with:

$ pipenv run py.test
$ pre-commit
