Pinax Ecosystem

This app was developed as part of the Pinax ecosystem but is just a Django app and can be used independently of other Pinax apps.

To learn more about Pinax, see

pinax-eventlog, formerly named eventlog is a simple app that provides an easy and clean interface for logging diagnostic as well as business intelligence data about activity that occurs in your site.

Out of the box using this does write to the database. For small sites, it should be good enough to use inline but you might at some point want to consider wrapping calls to the log() method and queue them in a job manager like celery or pyres so that the calls become asynchronous.
