Logging as Storytelling

Latest Version: 1.3.0

Eliot provides a structured logging and tracing system for Python that generates log messages describing a forest of nested actions. Actions start and eventually finish, successfully or not. Log messages thus tell a story: what happened and what caused it.


  • Structured, typed log messages.
  • Ability to log actions, not just point-in-time information: log messages become a trace of program execution.
  • Excellent support for unit testing your logging code.
  • Emphasis on performance, including no blocking I/O in logging code path.
  • Optional Twisted support.
  • Designed for JSON output, usable by Logstash/Elasticsearch.
  • Supports CPython 2.7, 3.3 and PyPy.

Eliot is released by HybridCluster under the Apache 2.0 License.

To install:

$ pip install eliot
