Tiny and minimalistic logging utility
Tiny and minimalistic logging utility module.
Lode is designed to be used in the case where normally simple print statement style debugging would be useful, like checking whether or not a section of code is executed, but stdout or stderr has been robbed from you by something like a devilishly clever test framework. Rather than try to uncover which dark alleyway your calls to print end up, lode just outputs it to a friendly file.
Lode is tested and supported on python versions 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4.
Lode can be installed with pip:
$ pip install lode
Or from source:
$ git clone https://github.com/kragniz/lode.git $ cd lode $ python setup.py install
For the most basic usage, just import lode and call the
log function. Usage
is largely the same as the print function, with it taking any number of
positional arguments, formatting those to a string, and joining them together
separated by spaces.
import lode; lode.log('hi there!')
Tests are stored the
tests subdirectory of the main lode package. Set up lode
for testing by running in the root directory of the git repository the
$ pip install -e . $ pip install -r test-requirements.txt
Then run the tests:
$ py.test -v
