What is Mondrian?

Mondrian is a small library that will make you use python logging module, once and for all.

Most python coders who avoids the systematic usage of logging in their projects does so because it feels complicated to setup, but it's not.

Mondrian provides a one-call interface to its configuration, with pretty formatters that makes you feel great.

Quick start

Install the mondrian package:

 $ pip install mondrian

In your project's entrypoints (for example, <yourpackage>/, call mondrian.setup():

import mondrian
import logging

logger = logging.getLogger()

def main():

if __name__ == '__main__':

You can remove the excepthook=True if you don't want mondrian to override the default exception handler for better formating. But it's nice, try it first.

Now, use python's logging module in your project's files:

import logging

logger = logging.getLogger(__name__)

def some_very_nice_function():
    logger.warning('Ola amigo!')

That's all, folks!

Your python logger now looks like this
