Simple logging. Stored in database, accessed in Django admin.

Project description

Simple logging to the database for django projects. Log entries are viewed in admin.

Note: Be sparing with the number of messages logged to the database. It is convenient when you want events logged that can be viewed in the django admin, but logging excessively to the database can cripple performance.

Requirements

Django 1.7 or greater.

Install

Install package:

pip install django-lumberjack

Add 'lumberjack' to your INSTALLED_APPS:

# settings.py

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    'django.contrib.admin',
    'django.contrib.auth',
    ...
    'lumberjack',
)

Add handler and logger configs:

# settings.py

LOGGING = {
    ...
    'handlers': {
        'lumberjack_handler': {
            'level': 'DEBUG',
            'class': 'lumberjack.handlers.DBHandler',
        },
    },
    'loggers': {
        'lumberjack': {
            'handlers': ['lumberjack_handler'],
        },
    }
}

Create database tables:

$ ./manage.py migrate lumberjack

Usage

Example of logging in a view function:

# views.py

import logging

logger = logging.getLogger('lumberjack')

def someview(request):

    logger.debug('someview was called', [__name__, 'sometag'])

    ...

    try:
        # some action
        ...

    except:
        logger.error('some action failed', [__name__, 'fml'])
