Description

Features

Easy logging to console and/or (rotating) file. Provides a fully configured standard Python logger object. Pretty formatting, including level-specific colors in the console. Windows color output supported by colorama Robust against str/bytes encoding problems, works with all kinds of character encodings and special characters. Multiple loggers can write to the same logfile (also works across multiple Python files). Global default logger with logzero.logger and custom loggers with logzero.setup_logger(..). Compatible with Python 2 and 3. All contained in a single file. Licensed under the MIT license. Heavily inspired by the Tornado web framework.

Installation:

python -m pip install logzero

Example Usage

from logzero import logger

logger.debug("hello")
logger.info("info")
logger.warning("warn")
logger.error("error")

# This is how you'd log an exception
try:
    raise Exception("this is a demo exception")
except Exception as e:
    logger.exception(e)

# JSON logging
import logzero
logzero.json()

logger.info("JSON test")

# Start writing into a logfile
logzero.logfile("/tmp/logzero-demo.log")

# Set a minimum loglevel
logzero.loglevel(logzero.WARNING)

This is the output:

demo-output

Note: You can find more examples in the documentation: https://logzero.readthedocs.io

JSON logging

JSON logging can be enabled for the default logger with logzero.json(), or with setup_logger(json=True) for custom loggers:

>>> logzero.json()
>>> logger.info("test")
{"asctime": "2020-10-21 10:42:45,808", "filename": "<stdin>", "funcName": "<module>", "levelname": "INFO", "levelno": 20, "lineno": 1, "module": "<stdin>", "message": "test", "name": "logzero_default", "pathname": "<stdin>", "process": 76179, "processName": "MainProcess", "threadName": "MainThread"}

>>> my_logger = setup_logger(json=True)
>>> my_logger.info("test")
{"asctime": "2020-10-21 10:42:45,808", "filename": "<stdin>", "funcName": "<module>", "levelname": "INFO", "levelno": 20, "lineno": 1, "module": "<stdin>", "message": "test", "name": "logzero_default", "pathname": "<stdin>", "process": 76179, "processName": "MainProcess", "threadName": "MainThread"}

The logged JSON object has these fields:

{
  "asctime": "2020-10-21 10:43:40,765",
  "filename": "test.py",
  "funcName": "test_this",
  "levelname": "INFO",
  "levelno": 20,
  "lineno": 9,
  "module": "test",
  "message": "info",
  "name": "logzero",
  "pathname": "_tests/test.py",
  "process": 76204,
  "processName": "MainProcess",
  "threadName": "MainThread"
}

Exceptions logged with logger.exception(e) have these additional JSON fields:

{
  "levelname": "ERROR",
  "levelno": 40,
  "message": "this is a demo exception",
  "exc_info": "Traceback (most recent call last):\n  File \"_tests/test.py\", line 15, in test_this\n    raise Exception(\"this is a demo exception\")\nException: this is a demo exception"
}

Take a look at the documentation for more information and examples:

Installation

Install logzero with pip:

python -m pip install logzero

Here's how you setup a virtualenv and download and run the demo:

# Create and activate a virtualenv in ./venv/
python3 -m venv venv
. venv/bin/activate

# Install logzero
python -m pip install logzero

# Download and run demo.py
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/metachris/logzero/master/examples/demo.py
python demo.py

If you don't have pip installed, this Python installation guide can guide you through the process.

Alternatively, if you use the Anaconda distribution:

$ conda config --add channels conda-forge
$ conda install logzero

You can also install logzero from the public Github repo:

$ git clone https://github.com/metachris/logzero.git
$ cd logzero
$ python setup.py install

Development

Getting started

$ git clone https://github.com/metachris/logzero.git
$ cd logzero

# Activate virtualenv
$ python3 -m venv venv
$ . venv/bin/activate

# Install main and dev dependencies
$ pip install -e .
$ pip install -r requirements_dev.txt

# Run the tests
$ make test

# Run the linter
$ make lint

# Generate the docs (will auto-open in Chrome)
$ make docs

# You can enable watching mode to automatically rebuild on changes:
$ make servedocs

To test with Python 2.7, you can use Docker:

docker run --rm -it -v /Users/chris/stream/logzero:/mnt python:2.7 /bin/bash

Now you have a shell with the current directory mounted into /mnt/ inside the container.
