Redirecting Python Logging Output for Test

A simple way to capture logging output to the screen (STDOUT) in python is monkey patch logging methods.

def monkey_print(*args):

print args

setattr(logging, ‘info’, monkey_print)

When you are done debugging delete the above code and you’re back on track. It’s not pretty, but it gets the job done fast.
