- DATABASE_ENGINE can either be "mysql" or "sqlite"
- For sqlite only DATABASE_HOST is used, and it should begin with a '/'
- All other DATABASE_* settings are required for mysql
-- VERBOSE mode causes the crawler to output some stats that are generated as it goes
+- DEBUG mode causes the crawler to output some stats that are generated as it goes, and other debug messages
+- LOGGING is a dictConfig dictionary to log output to the console and a rotating file, and works out-of-the-box, but can be modified
Current State
=============
- mysql engine untested
-- Lots of debug prints
- Issue in some situations where the database is locked and queries cannot execute. Presumably an issue only with sqlite's file-based approach
+Logging
+=======
+- DEBUG+ level messages are logged to the console, and INFO+ level messages are logged to a file.
+- By default, the file for logging uses a TimedRotatingFileHandler that rolls over at midnight
+- Setting DEBUG in the settings toggles wether or not DEBUG level messages are output at all
+- Setting USE_COLORS in the settings toggles whether or not messages output to the console use colors depending on the level.

Misc
====
- Designed to be able to run on multiple machines and work together to collect info in central DB
