cloudlog

A simple logger that duplicates console logs to a local file, Dropbox and Telegram. More details in this post.

How to use

  • Install package:

     pip install cloudlog
  • Import CloudLog class:

     from cloudlog import CloudLog
  • Log text by simply calling a CloudLog instance:

     log = CloudLog(root_path='~/logs')
     log('Some important stuff happening.')
     log('And again!')
     log('Luckily, it\'s all safe now in a local file.')
  • Add pyplot plots as images in the same folder:

     from matplotlib import pyplot
    
     # Draw a plot
     x = range(42)
     pyplot.plot(x, x)
     pyplot.xlabel('Amount of logs')
     pyplot.ylabel('Coolness of your app')
     pyplot.grid(True)
    
     # Call it before calling `pyplot.show()`.
     log.add_plot()
    
     pyplot.show()

Dropbox

In order to sync your logs and plots to Dropbox:

  • Create a Dropbox app with App folder access type.
  • Get your Dropbox access token and provide it in initialiser.
  • Call sync() in order to dispatch log file to your Dropbox app folder.
log = CloudLog(root_path='~/logs', dropbox_token='YOUR_DROPBOX_TOKEN_HERE')

log('Some important stuff happening again.')
log('Luckily, it\'s all safe now. In the cloud!')
log.sync()

Plots are being synced to Dropbox folder by default.

Telegram

You may as well get notifications in a Telegram chat, with logs and plots being sent to you.

log = CloudLog(root_path='~/logs', telegram_token='YOUR_TELEGRAM_TOKEN', telegram_chat_id='CHAT_ID')

log('Some important stuff once more.')
log('Luckily, it\'s all safe now in a local file. AND you\'re notified — how cool is that?')

log.sync(notify=True, message='I\'m pregnant.')

Specify the same notify flag for plots for them to be sent to a Telegram chat as well:

...
log.add_plot(notify=True)

Since one may be tempted to dispatch a bunch of updates at the same time, the user will not be notified about messages containing files, such as plots and logs — only about the message passed to sync() method.
