Consider the following truncated source file (an empty Quickly application with unnecessary lines stripped):

import logging
logger = logging.getLogger('foobar')

class FoobarWindow(Window):
    __gtype_name__ = "FoobarWindow"

    def finish_initializing(self, builder): # pylint: disable=E1002
        """Set up the main window"""
        super(FoobarWindow, self).finish_initializing(builder)

        # Code for other initialization actions should be added here."hello world from the logger")

The whole code is already in the quickly template, only the call to has been added. But I don't see any console output and I have not seen any logfile. Could somebody elaborate on logging practice in applications created with Quickly? Thank you!

Just add logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO) after the import statement.

This will make all log messages being redirected to the terminal. In terms of practices, i think there's nothing specific to Quickly. If you need to tweak other parameters (log to a file instead of console, log format, etc) you can find more info here. Hope it helps.
