repoze.errorlog 1.1

Error logging and reporting middleware


This package implements a WSGI middleware filter which intercepts exceptions and writes them to a Python logging module channel (or the wsgi.errors filehandle, if no channel is configured). It also allows the browsing of limited exception history via a browser UI.


Install using setuptools, e.g. (within a virtualenv):

$ easy_install repoze.errorlog

or using pip:

$ pip install repoze.errorlog


For details on using the various components, please see the documentation in docs/index.rst. A rendered version of that documentation is also available online:

Obtaining Source Code

Download development or tagged versions of the software by visiting:


1.1 (2016-06-03)

  • Add support for Python 3.5.
  • Drop support for Python 2.6 and 3.2.

1.0.0 (2015-02-07)

  • Add support for Python 3.2, 3,3, and 3.4, and PyPy3.
  • Drop dependency on Paste (forking / simplifying paste.request.parse_querystring and paste.request.construct_url).
  • Add support for testing on Travis.
  • Add Sphinx documentation.
  • Drop support for Python 2.4 / 2.5.

0.9.2 (2012-03-29)

  • This release is the last which will maintain support for Python 2.4 / Python 2.5.
  • Add support for continuous integration using tox and jenkins.
  • Add support for PyPy.
  • Add ‘ dev’ alias (runs develop plus installs nose and coverage).
  • Moved to github.

0.9.1 (2010-05-23)

  • Make it possible to send exceptions to a logger channel as described in the docs; this didn’t actually work previously because a) I’m not very good at programming and b) the Python logging module is terrible (using s[-1] and not catching an exception when the string is empty rather than using s.endswith(), at least under Python 2.4).

0.9 (2010-05-23)

  • Bump copyrights.
  • Remove dependency on
  • Docs now show how to use ErrorLog outside PasteDeploy.
  • Avoid a dependency on elementtree when used with Python 2.5 and later. In those Python versions we used the built-in xml.etree support.
  • 100% test coverage.

0.8 (2008-06-25)

  • Remove post-mortem debug middleware (moved to repoze.debug).
  • Initial PyPI release.

0.7 (2008-05-21)

  • Add post-mortem debug middleware (egg:repoze.errorlog#pdbpm)
  • Remove versions from dependencies.



  • Depend on elementree 1.2.6 explicitly.


  • Add ignore feature to configuration. A value consisting of space-separated entry point names can be used here, indicating that these exception types should not be logged or kept in exception history.
  • Allow __error_log__ view path to be configured via path entry in Paste configuration.
  • Place repoze.errorlog.path and repoze.errorlog.entryid in the WSGI environment to allow error-catching middleware and apps to compose URLs to errors.


  • 0.2 didn’t work as a filter. :-(
  • Don’t use zope.pagetemplate, it has too many (potentially conflicting) dependencies. Instead use meld for template views.


  • Provide a TTW view (accessible via /__error_log__) of recent tracebacks.


  • Initial release.
