How to Set Up Python Logging with UTF-8 Encoding?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To set up Python logging with UTF-8 encoding, you need to configure the logger to use a UTF-8 compatible formatter.

Here’s an example of how you can set up Python logging with UTF-8 encoding:

import logging

# create a logger object
logger = logging.getLogger()

# set the logging level
logger.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)

# create a formatter with UTF-8 encoding
formatter = logging.Formatter('%(asctime)s - %(name)s - %(levelname)s - %(message)s', encoding='utf-8')

# create a handler that uses the formatter
handler = logging.StreamHandler()
handler.setFormatter(formatter)

# add the handler to the logger
logger.addHandler(handler)

# now you can log messages using the logger
logger.debug('Debug message')
logger.info('Info message')
logger.warning('Warning message')
logger.error('Error message')
logger.critical('Critical message')

In the above example, we create a logger object and set its logging level to DEBUG. Then, we create a formatter object that uses UTF-8 encoding and set it to the logging messages format. After that, we create a handler object that streams the log messages to the console and set its formatter to the one we created before. Finally, we add the handler to the logger.

Now, when we log messages using the logger, they will be encoded in UTF-8 format.
