Welcome to Logbook

Logbook is a logging sytem for Python that replaces the standard library’s logging module. It was designed with both complex and simple applications in mind and the idea to make logging fun:

>>> from logbook import Logger
>>> log = Logger('Logbook')
>>> log.info('Hello, World!')
[2010-07-23 16:34] INFO: Logbook: Hello, World!

What makes it fun? What about getting log messages on your phone or desktop notification system? Logbook can do that.

This library is still under heavy development and the API is not fully finalized yet. Feedback is appreciated. The docs here only show a tiny, tiny feature set and are terribly incomplete. We will have better docs soon, but until then we hope this gives a sneak peak about how cool Logbook is. If you want more, have a look at the comprehensive testsuite.
