SMS log handler.

Project description

Travis Codecov

This is a python sms handler. The idea is to quickly alert the developer that something has gone horribly wrong with their application. This only serves as a means of alerting, for comprehensive traceback you can configure something like Sentry or use python’s SMTPHandler to get email alerts.


  • Python 3.4+

The handler has not been tested using python27. Feel free to open a pull request if you need support for this version


pip install sms-log-handler


The following details how this handler can be configured to run on Python. The implementation below is specific to AfricasTalking Provider

import logging

LOGGER = logging.getLogger(__name__)
provider_config =  {
    'provider_class': 'sms_log_handler.providers.africastalking.AfricasTalkingProvider',
    'provider_key': '<your-username>',
    'provider_secret': '<your-api-key>',
    'provider_send_to': ['+25472XXXXXXX', ]
handler = SMSHandler(provider_config)

    raise KeyError()
    LOGGER.error('Duplicate records found in the user model', exc_info=True)


To use the logger in django configure your LOGGING to include the SMSHandler as part of you handlers.
