A python module with sensible defaults for logging

Project Description
  • version number: 0.0.1
  • date: 2016.11.10
  • author: Andrew J. Todd esq.


A python module to allow you to log. It’s a wrapper around the standard logging module with sensible defaults and as little configuration as possible.


To install use pip:

$ pip install simple_log

Or clone the repo:

$ hg clone $ python install


We try and stay true to the name and make using this module as simple as possible. For the simplest case just use

>>> from simple_log import get_log
>>> my_log = get_log()
>>>"This is an information message")
2016.11.10 22:21:51 INFO:: This is an information message

If you want to have multiple logs just pass a name to get_log

>>> second_log = get_log('two')
>>> second_log.debug("This is a debug message")

By default the logging level is set to ‘INFO’ (the standard module defaults to ‘WARN’). See the [logging tutorial]( for information on logging levels. If you would like to change the logging level, for instance to display ‘DEBUG’ messages use the set_level function

>>> from simple_log import get_log, set_level
>>> my_log = get_log('test_log')
>>> my_log.debug('This is the first debug message')
>>> set_level('test_log', 'DEBUG')
>>> my_log.debug('This is the second debug message')
2016.11.10 22:34:55 DEBUG:: This is the second debug message
