Additional logging handlers.

Project description

This package provides additional loghandlers for use with the Python standardlib logging module.

Currently, only one additional logging handler is provided, which manages log file rotation based on Cron-like settings. So you can tell to rotate the logs at every day, week, month, or similar. Different to the logging.handlers.TimedRotatingFileHandler you can expect the rotation to happen at beginning of intervals.

For instance, if you start daily logging with logging.handlers.TimedRotatingFileHandler at 11:12h, a rollover will happen at 11:12h on the next day. With ulif.loghandlers.DatedRotatingFileHandler the rollover will instead happen at midnight, regardless of when you started the logging.

Furthermore you can let the number of backup files increase indefinitely by passing backupCount = -1.

Please note, that this package is still in a very early state and changes, also to the API, are likely to happen in near future.

Comments and patches are welcome. Please send these to uli at gnufix dot de.
