Multi-processing capable print-like logger for Python

Requirements and Installation

Python 3.8+ is required


pip install mplogger


Poetry and (optionally) GNU Make are required.

  1. git clone
  2. Run make

On Windows or without Make (after cloning the repository):

  1. poetry install --no-root
  2. poetry build
  3. poetry run pip install --upgrade dist/*.whl (the correct filename must be specified on Windows)



from MLPlogger import Logger

# Initialize logger (default: STDERR only with INFO level)
logger = Logger(log_filename, logfile_mode, logfile_encoding, logfile_level, console_stream, console_level, console_format, file_format)

logger.log('INFO', 'First argument log level as string')
logger.log('WARNING', 'THIS IS A WARNING!', 'In multiple lines', 'just like print()', sep='\n')
logger.log('CRITICAL', 'Can also set line endings!', end='\r\n')

        # Here one can log parallel from all processes!
        return_queue = p.imap(worker_process, zip(range(10), repeat(mplogger)), chunksize=3)
