A handler for the python logging module that sends logs through any REST-ful API. Fully asyncronous. With Loggly support.

Project description

A simple logging handler for python that will send any logging events out to a RESTful API using HTTP POST requests. Fully asyncronuous using requests-futures, tested for Python 2 & 3, and has support for Loggly.

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
