Welcome to Logbook

Logbook is a logging system 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, StreamHandler
>>> import sys
>>> StreamHandler(sys.stdout).push_application()
>>> log = Logger('Logbook')
>>> log.info('Hello, World!')
[2015-10-05 18:55:56.937141] INFO: Logbook: Hello, World!

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

Feedback is appreciated. The docs here only show a tiny, tiny feature set and can be incomplete. We will have better docs soon, but until then we hope this gives a sneak peek about how cool Logbook is. If you want more, have a look at the comprehensive suite of tests.
