PyPI PyPI Travis ReadTheDocs Code style: Black Downloads Test Coverage Maintainability

Logging made simple, no excuse for any debug print call.

Features

  • Logging management (debug, information or error messages)
  • Simple logging setup
  • Based on Python logging module of the standard library
  • Based on colorlog for colored log on console

For advanced users:

  • The provided logger is one of those from logging, this means it can be configured so that log messages are sent by email, HTTP, or any of the options available in https://docs.python.org/3/library/logging.handlers.html.
  • The StreamHandler and the associated Formatter are those provided by colorlog.

Example

Basic usage

import simplelogging

# log = simplelogging.get_logger(console_level=simplelogging.DEBUG)
# log = simplelogging.get_logger(file_name="log.txt")
log = simplelogging.get_logger()

a_string_variable = "hello"
an_integer_variable = 42
a_floating_point_variable = 3.14

log.debug("some debug")
log.info("some info")
log.info(
    "some variables: %s, %d, %f",
    a_string_variable,
    an_integer_variable,
    a_floating_point_variable,
)
log.warning("some warning")
log.error("some error")
log.critical("some critical error")

try:
    x = 1 / 0
except ZeroDivisionError as error:
    log.exception(error)

quickstart result

Keep in mind that you shouldn't do string formatting yourself. Delegate formatting to simplelogging (i.e. logging in this case), the formatting will be done only if necessary, that is if the message is going to be displayed. See above examples of how to display variables.

Usage with modules

example_module.py

import simplelogging

log = simplelogging.get_logger()


def log_some_messages():
    log.debug("## some debug ##")
    log.info("## some info ##")
    log.warning("## some warning ##")
    log.error("## some error ##")

main.py

import example_module
import simplelogging

# log = simplelogging.get_logger(console_level=simplelogging.DEBUG)
# log = simplelogging.get_logger(file_name="log.txt")
log = simplelogging.get_logger()

a_variable = "a nice variable"
another_variable = 42

log.error("---- normal logging ----")
log.debug("a debug message")
log.info("an info")
log.warning("a warning")
log.error("%s and %d", a_variable, another_variable)

log.error("---- example_module writes to the log ----")
example_module.log_some_messages()

log.error("---- reduced logging (bye debug and info messages) ----")
log.reduced_logging()
log.debug("a debug message")
log.info("an info")
log.warning("a warning")
log.error("an error")

log.error("---- full logging (welcome back debug and info messages) ----")
log.full_logging()
log.debug("a debug message")
log.info("an info")
log.warning("a warning")
log.error("an error")

Credits

This package is an extension of the logging package in the Python standard library. Coloring of the console relies on colorlog.
