Python Flask logging handler to group messages on Google Cloud Platform

Project description

Flask extension that allows log lines emitted within a request handler to display/render together.

Normally, when using Google Cloud Logging libraries ( google-cloud-logging and CloudLoggingHander), each log entry that gets emitted is displayed separately within the Logging UI. However, its desireable to group all logs together that logically belong that way in an HTTP Request. For a given HTTP Request into FLask, this extension displays all the logs ‘together’ below the parent request.
