Pinax is an open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework. It is an ecosystem of reusable Django apps, themes, and starter project templates. This collection can be found at http://pinaxproject.com.
This app was developed as part of the Pinax ecosystem but is just a Django app and can be used independently of other Pinax apps.
pinax-eventlog is a simple app that provides an easy and clean
interface for logging diagnostic as well as business intelligence
data about activity that occurs in your site.
Out of the box using this does write to the database.
For small sites, it should be good enough to use inline but you might at some
point want to consider wrapping calls to the
log() method and queue them in
a job manager like
pyres so that the calls become asynchronous.
This project was originally named
eventlog and was created by the team at
Eldarion. It was later donated to Pinax and at that time renamed to
pinax-eventlog documentation can be found at http://pinax-eventlog.rtfd.org/.

In case of any questions we recommend you join our Pinax Slack team (http://slack.pinaxproject.com) and ping us there instead of creating an issue on GitHub. Creating issues on GitHub is of course also valid but we are usually able to help you faster if you ping us in Slack.
We also highly recommend reading our Open Source and Self-Care blog post (http://blog.pinaxproject.com/2016/01/19/open-source-and-self-care/).
