termlog v1.1.1: A terminal logging library

Project description


Termlog: A terminal logging library for logging data both as lexed text or json


I love f-strings and I wanted a method of displaying beautiful f-strings in command-line interfaces. However, I needed a way of simultaneously creating a developer friendly text log and producing structured text that could be interpreted by a log-shipper in a clustered environment.

Termlog will…

  • wrap print statements with a new method, echo
  • echo is fully compatible with print and is meant to be a drop-in replacement
  • echo can immediately control: color, json, timestamp, time-format outputs on each invocation
  • Alternatively, a set_config command can set the library to use a specific configuration for each subsequent call to echo


from termlog import blue, echo, red, rgb, set_config

key = 'abc'
value = 123

set_config(color=True, json=False)

echo(f'{red(key)}: {blue(value)}')
echo(f'{rgb(message=key, red=71, green=61, blue=139)}: {blue(value)}')
echo(f'{key}: {blue(value)}', color=True)


To install termlog, simply run the following.

$ pip install termlog
