I'm pleased to announce a new release of Mailinglogger.
Mailinglogger provides two handlers for the standard python logging framework that enable log entries to be emailed either as the entries are logged or as a summary at the end of the running process.
The handlers have the following features:
- customisable and dynamic subject lines for emails sent
- emails sent with an X-Mailer header for easy filtering
- flood protection to ensure the number of emails sent is not excessive
- support for SMTP servers that require authentication
- fully documented and tested
In addition, extra support is provided for configuring the handlers when using ZConfig, Zope 2 or Zope 3.
The latest releases of ZConfig, in particular, provide a great way to configure the python logging framework without having to resort to the appalling .ini-based configuration stuff:
from ZConfig import configureLoggers configureLoggers('''
... <logger> ... level INFO ... <logfile> ... PATH STDOUT ... format %(levelname)s %(name)s %(message)s ... </logfile> ... </logger> ... ''')
This release of MailingLogger adds the ability to use %(levelname)s in subject-line formatting for SummarisingLoggers to include the highest level logged.
