Logs things (dicts, tuples, lists, etc) in color and beautiful format.


This package can be installed from PyPI using pip. Make sure you have pip installed then run:

$ pip install prettylogger

#####Installation Using Buildout

If you're using Buildout and want to use prettylogger you can do so by adding the following lines to your buildout.cfg file:

recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs = prettylogger

and appending prettylogger to your buildout:parts.


Logging beautifully formatted things is as easy as:

from prettylogger.utils import log

thing = {'name': 'prettylogger', 'version': '0.1.0'}
mode = 'rb' # Discussion below
log(thing, mode)

And it will log the following:

prettylogger output

#####Formatting Options

The mode parameter for the log function is a string with each character being one of the following:

  • p: print the thing in purple
  • c: print the thing in cyan
  • y: print the thing in yellow
  • g: print the thing in green
  • r: print the thing in red
  • b: print the thing in bold characters

So the mode used in the example above, rb, tells the log method to print the thing in color red and bold characters.
