Logging and debuging facility
DEBUG Detailed information, typically of interest only when diagnosing problems.
INFO Confirmation that things are working as expected.
WARNING An indication that something unexpected happened, or indicative of some problem in the
near future (e.g. disk space low). The software is still working as expected.
ERROR Due to a more serious problem, the software has not been able to perform some function.
CRITICAL A serious error, indicating that the program itself may be unable to continue running.
There are three loggers: `console_only`, `file_only` and `both`.
Use: `from debug import logger` to import this facility into whatever module you wish to log messages from.
Logging is thread-safe so you don't have to worry about locks, just import and log.
