Hi! Isn't it just basicConfig? 
>     import logging 
>     logging.basicConfig( 
>         filename='test.log', 
>         format='[%(asctime)s] %(name)s %(levelname)s: %(message)s', 
>         level=logging.DEBUG, 
>     ) 
>     log = logging.getLogger("TEST") 

BasicConfig does not allow different settings for different log readers, as 
I can see. E.g.

    import logging 
    log1 = logging.getLogger("TEST1") 
    log2 = logging.getLogger("TEST2")

Here log2 will write out logs at the same level as log1, so basicConfic is 
IMO too basic for a lot of use cases and so you'll have to go through the 
other more verbose setup. 

So, this getLogReader function would be more general than basicConfig, but 
also much more useful. (But please educate me, if I've misunderstood
