What is quicklogging

quicklogging is a Python logging wrapper to

  • remove a bit of logging boilerplate,
  • redirect print output.

quicklogging transparently provides a logger with a name relevant to the code at hand:


The name of the logger is the name of the module making the call.

For instance, if you log from project/models/, your logger will be named project.models.chair.

This is a very important feature:

Advantage #1 of this naming scheme

the configuration of the logging.Logger s and handlers is much easier —muting, changing verbosity for a particular piece of code etc

Advantage #2

we can provide a quicklogging.catch_prints() and a quicklogging.warn_prints() functionality to catch calls to print() from specific modules (typically: the module you’re editing).

Python versions

According to travis-ci :

  • Python 3.5: ok
  • Python 3.5-dev: ok
  • Python nightly: ok

Cannot test, but should work because I don’t know of API changes:

Libs required

None ! unless you’re running the tests (then you need stringimporter). . So I’ve got this easy badge: Requirements Status.
