A Python parser for the journald binary export format

Project Description

This is a really simple Python parser for the journald binary export format.

It can parse journal entries from a file-like object or an iterable, and yields each entry as a dict containing all attributes of the journal entry:

from __future__ import print_function  # if using Python 2.x

from journalparse import journalparse


with open("some_file", "rb") as fp:
    for entry in journalparse(fp):
        print(entry)

# ... or ...

data = b"_MESSAGE=blah"
for entry in journalparse(data):
    print(entry)

There are no requirements other than Python. Tested on Python 3.5 but should work on Python 2.6+ and 3.2+.
