Improved logging for Bottle.

Project description

Improved logging for Bottle.


In order to catch exceptions from other plugins the LoggingPlugin should be the first plugin you install to the application.

import bottle
from bottle_log import LoggingPlugin

app = bottle.Bottle()

def test(logger):
    logger.warning('This is only a test')
    return {}


The plugin uses the following configuration keys:


The logging level. Possible values: debug, info, warning, error, critical. Defaults to warning.


The logging format. See the python logging documentation for the format. Defaults to “[%(asctime)s] %(levelname)s: %(name)s: %(message)s


If True, the default, time stamps are in UTC.


The standard logger, used by the logger keyword, prints to stderr by default.

Exception logging

This plugin also provides an exception logger (‘bottle.exception’). By default this logger does nothing, since bottle prints all exceptions to stderr, but it can be useful if you want to log exceptions to somewhere else. For example, logging to Logentries:

import bottle
from logentries import LogentriesHandler
from bottle_log import LoggingPlugin

app = bottle.Bottle()
le_handler = LogentriesHandler('logentries-api-token')
