A handler for the python logging module that allows sending logs through a REST-ful API. With Loggly support.
# Python RESTful API Logging Handler with Loggly Support A simple logging handler for python that will send any logging events out to a RESTful API using HTTP POST requests.
## Installation pip install restapi-logging-handler
## Usage Import whichever module(s) you need: ` from restapi_logging_handler import RestApiHandler from restapi_logging_handler import LogglyHandler `
### RESTful API Usage Set your Python logging handler to send logs to a REST-ful API ` logger = logging.getLogger(__name__) restapiHandler = RestApiHandler('http://my.restfulapi.com/endpoint/') logger.addHandler(restapiHandler) logger.setLevel(logging.INFO) logger.info("Send this to my RESTful API") `
By default, it sends the log data as a JSON object. You can currently change that to send text instead. ` restapiHandler = RestApiHandler('http://my.restfulapi.com/endpoint/', 'text') `
### Loggly Usage Set your Python logging handler to send logs out to your Loggly account. The LogglyHandler takes as its first argument the custom token given to you when you sign up for a Loggly account. The second argument can be a tag string, or a list of tags to be associated with the log inside of Loggly. ` logglyHandler = LogglyHandler('loggly-custom-key', ['tag1','tag2',...]) `
## Testing Install tox and run it to test against Python 2 and 3. ` sudo pip install nose tox `
