Extension of logs for rospy based con roscpp.

Project description

# Extended ROS logs for python (rospy)

`extended_rospylogs` implements for `rospy` some of the extra functionalities found in `roscpp` for logging.

## Installation

You can install `extended_rospylogs` from pip using

pip install extended_rospylogs

or using

pip install git+

## ROS log messages extension
In `rospy` there are only 5 functions for logging: `rospy.logdebug`, `rospy.loginfo`, `rospy.logwarn`, `rospy.logerr` and `rospy.logfatal`. In `roscpp` you can find other options like `ROS_DEBUG_COND`, `ROS_DEBUG_NAMED`, `ROS_DEBUG_COND_NAMED`, etc (for more info go to [ros logging](

The conditional option for logging is very useful when you want to have different logging messages in your nodes, and you want to change it in runtime (because you only can specify the `log_level` when initializing the node).

### Extended Functions
For the moment here are implemented all the `rospy` logging functions with the `cond` option:

* `logdebug_cond(bool, message)`
* `loginfo_cond(bool, message)`
* `logwarn_cond(bool, message)`
* `logerr_cond(bool, message)`
* `logfatal_cond(bool, message)`

## Usage

import rospy
from extended_rospylogs import logdebug_cond, loginfo_cond

rate = 30
debug = True
r = rospy.Rate(rate)

while not rospy.is_shutdown():

logdebug_cond(debug, "Some debug message")
loginfo_cond(debug, "Some info message for debugging")


Note that the `debug` variable could be a **node parameter** so it could be changed on runtime.
