A python module for the handy printing of logs to StackDriver based on severity

Project description


A python module for the handy printing of logs to StackDriver based on severity from within a Google Cloud Function

After running into an issue with Python logging not logging to the correct StackDriver severity filter, I created this helper module in order to facilitate that function. It replicates much of the logging functionality, but translated into StackDriver levels.

Severity Levels

Severity Int Level
INFO 200

for all severity levels except ALL, only logs of that log level or higher will be printed out (ex: Log Level of WARNING only prints out WARNING, ERROR, and CRITICAL). If the ALL log level is written, it will appear in all cases.

Setup the Module

This module can be used simply by doing: pip install gcp-python-logging

This module can then be imported and initialized as such:

from gcp_python_logging import LoggingClient

logger = LoggingClient()

Passing no arguments will use the environment variables available to grab the project, function name, and function region. However you can also pass those variables into the client in order to change where these logs will be sent.

Creating a Log

In order to create a new log, simply use a similar syntax to Python logger.

logger.debug('This is a debug statement')
logger.error('Something went wrong!')

Changing Log Level

By default, this module sets the LogLevel to DEBUG, but this can be changed by running the command:


Then only logs at level ERROR or higher will be reported.

Author's Note:

This currently prints out all logs in a JsonPayload in order to meet the needs of my project. If users would prefer the ability to choose the printout type please feel free to reach out to me.
