Logging functions used in the CogWorks lab.

Project Description


pycogworks.logging can be installed with ‘pip’:

# pip install pycogworks.logging


pycogworks.logging.getTime, pycogworks.logging.get_time

Returns the most accurate timestamp possible for the current OS.

>>> getTime()
>>> get_time()


Generates a date/time stamp usefull in logs and for log filenames.

>>> getDateTimeStamp()


Takes a dict of subject information and writes a history file. The subject information dict must contain a field called ‘rin’ with a value that contains a valid 9 digit RIN. If the subject information dict does not already contain an ‘encrypted_rin’ field, the RIN will be enrypted and added to the subject information dict under the field ‘encrypted_rin’. The subject information dict is then encoded as a JSON string and written to a file.

>>> writeHistoryFile("test.history",{"foo":"bar","rin":"123456789"})
# cat test.history
  "cipher": "AES/CBC (RIJNDAEL) - 16Byte Key",
  "encrypted_rin": "300fe9abdca99d4a32cb2c43f2a69c5c",
  "foo": "bar",
  "rin": "123456789"
