With commit 37afe31 one can use a helping function to initialise a logger within oemof.

Just import the logger module and initialise the logger at the very beginning of your app.

# Import logging module
from import logger

# initialise the logger

Now everything higher than info will be displayed on the screen but everything (including debug) will be written to a logfile in the folder: ~/.oemof/log_files/

Of course you are able to customise this behaviour. For example if want just warnings and errors but no infos on the screen.

The screen output looks like this now:

11:40:24-INFO-Path for logging: /home/uwe/.oemof/log_files
11:40:24-INFO-Used oemof version: 18345077 @ features/two_region_example
11:40:25-INFO-Processing region: Landkreis Wittenberg (LanWit)
11:40:26-WARNING-Something odd happened...

The file output looks like this:

2015-12-10 11:41:14,628 - INFO - logger - Path for logging: /home/uwe/.oemof/log_files
2015-12-10 11:41:14,628 - INFO - logger - Used oemof version: 18345077 @ features/two_region_example
2015-12-10 11:41:14,693 - DEBUG - tools - Getting polygon from DB
2015-12-10 11:41:14,694 - INFO - two_regions_example - Processing region: Landkreis Wittenberg (LanWit)
2015-12-10 11:41:15,591 - DEBUG - models - Retrieving cp values from cp_values.hf5
2015-12-10 11:41:16,987 - WARNING - models - Something odd happened...

@oemof/oemof-main : Do we agree that we want to use logging messages within the code? I like the fact that you have a protocol in a file. This can help a lot while debugging. But than we need meaningful logging messages.

No feedback? So I will close the issue and use the logger. Reopen if anything is unclear.
