Python bindings for g3log

This library provides python3 bindings for g3log + g3sinks (currently logrotate, syslog, and a color-terminal output). Calls can be made both from python and C++, retaining the thread-safety of g3log. The advantage is that you can use the same logger both in c++ and python parts of a multi-language project. Note that this project is made of two parts:

The binding layer modifies the interface of g3log+sinks to make it easily wrappable with pybind11. Exported methods from the binding layer can also be called from C++, providing a different interface to g3log.

Build and Install

git clone https://github.com/JoelStienlet/g3logPython

For the C++ bindings:

mkdir build_bindings && cd build_bindings && cmake .. && make && sudo make install

Then build the python wrapper:

python3 setup.py install


See the Examples directory for more advanced usage, and examples of different sink backends.

#!/usr/bin/env python3
import g3logPython as log
logger = log.get_ifaceLogWorker(False)
journaldSink = logger.SysLogSinks.new_Sink("journald","id=g3logPython")
log.debug("hello world!")
