Logging as Storytelling

Project description

Eliot provides a structured logging system for Python that generates as a forest of nested actions. Action start and eventually finish, successfully or not. Log messages thus tell a story: what happened, and what caused it.


  • Structured, typed messages.
  • Action tree, with messages automatically figuring out their action context.
  • Excellent support for unit testing your logging code.
  • Twisted support.
  • JSON output, usable by Logstash/Elasticsearch.

This is a PREVIEW and does not guarantee version stability across versions.

Eliot is released by under the Apache 2.0 License and maintained by Itamar Turner-Trauring.

Downloads are available on PyPI.

Documentation can be found on Read The Docs.

Bugs and feature requests should be filed at the project Github page.
