A new logdecorator version is available \o/

Share Tweet Share

After about one year after the initial release of my logdecorator package there has been some recent traffic on the github repository. This gave me motivation again, so I decided to rewrite most of the source in order to not abandon the project and also added a new decorator for logging exceptions.


Though the project is easy manageable it gave me a great feeling that some people have usage for my code and I want to thank them for the trust very much. I'm dedicated to move logdecorator forward, even if there are not that many dependants.

However, the original code was a little bit clumsy and already reached its limits with my own first issue (adding a new log_exception decorator). Therefore I rewrote huge parts of the library to gain a better extendability.


  • A new decorator log_exception was added, which can log exceptions using logger.exception(msg)
  • log_on_start and log_on_end now accept only necessary arguments (e.g.: on_exceptions is not acceptable anymore)
  • The base class LoggingDecorator isn't a swiss army knife anymore and is now intended and open for extension
  • All decorators are now subclasses (and not instances) of LoggingDecorator

Since these are some great changes and even backward incompatible*, I created a new major version for this update.

* Here I am speaking of the arguments, not accepted anymore. I was exerted to not break a sane usage.

What's next?

At the moment I don't see any lacking improvements. If you have any suggestions please open a new issue and I'll see over it.
