Logme - Python Logging for Humans Documentation Status

Logme is a Python package that makes logging simple and robust. If you have found logging in Python not so straight forward, download this package and give it a try! :)

V1.3.0 Updates

logme.ini file now supports custome datefmt and style! Thanks to @afunTW suggestion! :)

Here is an example of how you can specify these parameters in your logme.ini configuration:

level = DEBUG
formatter =
    fmt: {asctime} - {name} - {levelname} - {message}
    datefmt: %Y/%m/%d
    style: {
stream =
    type: StreamHandler
    active: True
    level: DEBUG
file =
    type: FileHandler
    active: True
    level: DEBUG
    formatter: {name} :: {funcName} :: {levelname} :: {message}
    filename: mylogpath/foo.log

Note: Only top level master_formatter supports parameters as shown above, individual handler formatter will not.

Terminal Color Output

logme supports color and styling output in the terminal!

The colors and style is customizable in logme.ini, here is a screenshot of how it looks like in the terminal:

To use color output in logme, make sure your logme package and logme.ini is up-to-date if you are using a version before 1.2.0.

Check the configuration details here.

In A Nutshell

If you have a function you want to log, you can do this in your python file:

import logme

def my_awesome_function(my_arg, logger=None):'this is my log message')
    """rest of the function"""

You can do the same with classes too:

import logme

class MyAwesomeClass:
    def my_function(self, my_arg):'this is my log message')

pretty nice right? :)

To get started, head to the quickstart page.


$ pipenv install logme
