cutelog – GUI for logging

PyPi

This is a graphical log viewer for Python's logging module. It can be targeted with a SocketHandler with no additional setup (see Usage).

It can also be used from other languages or logging libraries with little effort (see the Wiki). For example, a Go library gocutelog shows how to enable regular Go logging libraries to connect to cutelog.

This program is in beta, so please report bugs if you encounter them.

Features

  • Allows any number of simultaneous connections
  • Customizable look of log levels and columns, with presets for each
  • Filtering based on level and namespace, as well as filtering by searching
  • Search through all records or only through filtered ones
  • Display extra fields under the message with Extra mode
  • View exception tracebacks or messages in a separate window
  • Dark theme (with its own set of colors for levels)
  • Pop tabs out of the window, merge records of multiple tabs into one
  • Save/load records to/from a file in JSON format

Installation

If you're using Linux, install PyQt5 (or PySide2) from your package manager before installing cutelog (package name is probably python3-pyqt5 or python-pyqt5). Or just run pip install pyqt5 to install it from pip, which is sub-optimal.

$ pip install cutelog

Or install the latest development version from the source (requires PyQt5 to build resources):

$ pip install git+https://github.com/busimus/cutelog.git

Requirements

  • Python 3.5 (or newer)
  • PyQt5 (preferably 5.6 or newer) or PySide2
  • QtPy

Usage

  1. Start cutelog
  2. Put the following into your code:
import logging
from logging.handlers import SocketHandler

log = logging.getLogger('Root logger')
log.setLevel(1)  # to send all records to cutelog
socket_handler = SocketHandler('127.0.0.1', 19996)  # default listening address
log.addHandler(socket_handler)
log.info('Hello world!')

Afterwards it's recommended to designate different loggers for different parts of your program with log_2 = log.getChild("Child logger"). This will create "log namespaces" which allow you to filter out messages from various subsystems of your program.
