This logger offers some conveniences that make easier of logging from python code and from ZPT templates.

Project description


This is logger written from scratch. It offers few conveniences that helps in logging (e.g.: logging exceptions). It can also log some messages from ZPT (Zope Page Templates).


stxnext.log can be opened by used in python code:

>>> from stxnext.log import log
>>> log('log <this> text')
>>> log('log another text', printit=True) #doctest:+ELLIPSIS
[...] log another text
>>> try:
...     1/0
... except ZeroDivisionError, e:
...     log.log_exc(e)
>>> log.getLoggedTextAsHtml() #doctest:+ELLIPSIS, +NORMALIZE_WHITESPACE
<pre>[...] log &lt;this&gt; text...</pre>

stxnext.log can be also used in ZPT templates:

<tal:block tal:define="log context/@@STXNextLogger;
                       result python: log.setFilename('logger_filename.log');
                       result python: log.setName('logger name');">
    <tal:block tal:define="result python: log('log this text')" />
    <tal:block tal:define="result python: log('log another text', printit=True)" />
    <pre tal:replace="structure log/getLoggedTextAsHtml" />


Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout to manage your project, you can do this:

  • Add stxnext.log to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • If you’re using plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to manage your instance add this lines to install a ZCML slug:

    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    zcml =
  • If you’re using zc.zope3recipes:application recipe to manage your instance add this lines to install a ZCML slug:

    recipe = zc.zope3recipes:application
    site.zcml =
        <include package="stxnext.log" />
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.
