Small handler and formatter for using python logging with Redis

Project Description
Small handler and formatter for using python logging with Redis.
This is cleared and simplified version of python-redis-log by Jed Parsons, with Python3 support.


The current stable release:

pip install rlog


easy_install rlog

or from source:

$ sudo python install


>>> from rlog import RedisHandler
>>> logger = logging.getLogger()
>>> logger.addHandler(RedisHandler(channel='test'))
>>> logger.warning("Spam!")
>>> logger.error("Eggs!")

Redis clients subscribed to test will get a json log record by default.

RedisHandler and RedisListHandler also accepted all redis client settings as kwargs. More info about client settings
you may find in redis-py documentation.
Custom formatters also supported, handlers accept this as formatter keyword argument. JSONFormatter from this package
used as default.
You can use the redis-cli shell that comes with redis to test this. At
the shell prompt, type subscribe my:channel (replacing with the channel
name you choose, of course). You will see subsequent log data printed in the

Also you can use it with Django:

    'version': 1,
    'disable_existing_loggers': True,
    'handlers': {
        'redis': {
            'level': 'DEBUG',
            'class': 'rlog.RedisHandler',
            'host': 'localhost',
            'password': 'redis_password',
            'port': 6379,
            'channel': 'my_amazing_logs'
    'loggers': {
        'django': {
            'level': 'INFO',
            'handlers': ['redis'],
            'propagate': True,

You can also simply use it with logstash.
