python logger configuration, my way

Project description


Python logger configuration, my way.

clogger is a library that helps you to configure python logging library in the way I like. It helps configuration tasks such:

  • multiple handlers
  • log level setting

clogger contains two classes - CustomLogger and CustomFormatter - based on default logging library.

CustomFormatter inherit and modify logging.Formatter class in order to split handler names at the last '.', to improve readability of the log.

CustomoLogger class can be used to initialize and configure logging library in a smart and easily replicable way. It also enable a (small) set of preconfigured actions.


Install clogger is as easy as run pip install clogger.


You can configure log inside your script with few code rows.

from clogger import CustomLogger
from datetime import datetime

now ='%Y%m%d')
thisrunlog = 'thisrunlog_{}.log'.format(now)

logger = CustomLogger(
    filenames=["default.log", thisrunlog],

In the above example three handlers are defined: one stream handler and two file handlers. After definition, the same logger can be modified, to hack log level of all handlers (of course, the handler must exists in the namespace to be varied):

# changing log level for all the handlers

# changine level for some handlers
logger.change_level('DEBUG', ["mylog", "requests"])

Two methods are definied to be immediately call at the start and at the end of a script:


#... a lot of code...
