django-eventlog

django-eventlog is a very simple event logger you can use to track certain actions in your code. Events are stored in a Django model and can be viewed in the Django Admin.

Usage Example:

from eventlog import EventGroup

e = EventGroup()                       # Start a new Event Group
e.info('About to send 1000 mails.',    # Trigger an Event
       initiator='Mailer Daemon')
try:
    # ... sending 1000 mails
    e.info('All emails sent!',         # Trigger an Event in the same group,
           initiator='Mailer Daemon')  # so they are combined in the admin.
except Exception:
    e.error('There was an error sending the emails.',
            initiator='Mailer Daemon')

Events can be grouped in a “Event Group” and when hovering over one item in the admin, all events of the same group are highlighted:

The details view of an event will list all other events of this group so you can track the progress:

Note

While looking similar, it’s not intended to be a replacement for your regular Python logging facility, rather an addition to it.

django-eventlog stores it’s data in a regular database model, so each log entry will trigger a SQL Insert. Therefore you should be careful using it in high performance and/or high volume environments.
