        'verbose': {
            'format': '%(levelname)s %(asctime)s %(module)s %(process)d %(thread)d %(message)s'
        'simple': {
            'format': '%(levelname)s %(asctime)s %(message)s'
    'handlers': {

            'level': 'DEBUG',
            'class': 'django_db_logger.db_log_handler.DatabaseLogHandler'
    'loggers': {
        'db': {

            'level': 'DEBUG'

            'handlers': ['db_log'],
            'level': 'ERROR',
            'propagate': False,
  1. Run python migrate to create django-db-logger models.

  2. Use django-db-logger like this

import logging
db_logger = logging.getLogger('db')'info message')
db_logger.warning('warning message')

except Exception as e:


  1. DJANGO_DB_LOGGER_ADMIN_LIST_PER_PAGE: integer. list per page in admin view. default 10

  2. DJANGO_DB_LOGGER_ENABLE_FORMATTER: boolean. Using formatter options to format message. True or False, default False

Build your own database logger :hammer:

  1. Create a new app and add it to INSTALLED_APPS

  2. Copy files django-db-logger/, django-db-logger/, django-db-logger/ to the app folder

  3. Replace DJANGO_DB_LOGGER_ADMIN_LIST_PER_PAGE in with an integer

  4. Replace DJANGO_DB_LOGGER_ENABLE_FORMATTER in with True or False. Remove MSG_STYLE_SIMPLE, it was not used.

  5. Replace logger class django_db_logger.db_log_handler.DatabaseLogHandler in your Settings with the new logger class

  6. Customize the looger to meet your needs. :beer:
