Python Client for Stackdriver Logging#

pypi versions

Stackdriver Logging API: Writes log entries and manages your Stackdriver Logging configuration.

Quick Start#

In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps:

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.

  2. Enable billing for your project.

  3. Enable the Stackdriver Logging API.

  4. Setup Authentication.

Installation#

Install this library in a virtualenv using pip. virtualenv is a tool to create isolated Python environments. The basic problem it addresses is one of dependencies and versions, and indirectly permissions.

With virtualenv, it’s possible to install this library without needing system install permissions, and without clashing with the installed system dependencies.

Supported Python Versions#

Python >= 3.5

Deprecated Python Versions#

Python == 2.7. Python 2.7 support will be removed on January 1, 2020.

Mac/Linux#

pip install virtualenv
virtualenv <your-env>
source <your-env>/bin/activate
<your-env>/bin/pip install google-cloud-logging

Windows#

pip install virtualenv
virtualenv <your-env>
<your-env>\Scripts\activate
<your-env>\Scripts\pip.exe install google-cloud-logging

Using the API#

from google.cloud import logging_v2

client = logging_v2.LoggingServiceV2Client()
entries = []
response = client.write_log_entries(entries)
from google.cloud import logging
client = logging.Client()
logger = client.logger('log_name')
logger.log_text('A simple entry')  # API call

Example of fetching entries:

from google.cloud import logging
client = logging.Client()
logger = client.logger('log_name')
for entry in logger.list_entries():
    print(entry.payload)
