Prism – Colourise log files (with ANSI characters codes)

Project description

A command line log colouriser utility.


(sudo) pip install logprism

Usage examples

prism -g /var/log/*.log

prism -m /var/log/apache2/*log

prism /opt/local/var/macports/logs/*/*.log


  • Show some tail lines when using -w: Make a line cache (count total lines with wc -l) from the end of the file using some blocksize.
    1. Can be done with readlines() first. Then seek and read blocksize bytes from len(file)-blocksize and update cache.
    2. Later enable ncurses scrolling for earlier lines?
    3. Show n lines by default (a screenful / filecount?)
