> That's the problem, right there. I don't think the ways of doing this are bulletproof and require too much cooperation between third-party libraries.

Which third-party libraries? The thing I am proposing works for that particular file you call getLogger with.

In my files I already have:

logger = logging.getLogger(__name__)

Changing that to:

logger = logging.getLogger(__name__, style='{')

seems easy and backwards compatible. How will I break any other 3rd party use by doing this? It is my code in my file.

The only issue is that you have to make sure you are not passing object on. But that again, is your code, so you should know what you are passing on.

We could also add logger.defaultStyle() to return the same logger, with default style, so that you can pass it on to other function which might expect a logger, if you want that. Or, you could define:

defaultLogger = logging.getLogger(__name__)
logger = logging.getLogger(__name__, style='{')

at the beginning of the file, and then use logger in the file, and pass defaultLogger on.

There are so many options to address your concerns.

Simple approach by everywhere in my code having to use __ now? So I have _ for string translations, and __ for logging. This is cumbersome. Because it could be solved by having it only once in the file. Not that I have to call it manually everywhere in the file.

> which is also described in the documentation here:

Yes, I have read it, used it, didn't like it. So I thought about it and it feels pretty easy to provide a capacity to have a default style applied to the whole file. Instead of manually having to call __. It would effectively be the same internally. Just cleaner code. Do not repeat yourself. Repeating __ everywhere is repeating myself a lot. I would like this style. Let this be specified only once.
