Pyblish does not produce any output unless you explicitly tell it to.
If you enable the
DEBUG level whilst developing plug-ins, Pyblish can tell you a few things about what is going on.
import loggingimport pyblish.api# Step 0, this doesn't produce any warnings..pyblish.api.discover()# Step 1, bring out the debug level messageslogging.getLogger("pyblish").setLevel(logging.DEBUG)# Step 2, unless there already is a handler, one must be setup.logging.basicConfig()# Step 3, donepyblish.api.discover()# DEBUG:pyblish.plugin:Skipped: "collect_myplugin" (name 'pybddlish' is not defined)
The handler can be customised to tailor the format and contents of the messages, like a timestamp and what not.
Read up on standard Python logging and corresponding handlers for more details.
In the above example, messages weren't very pretty. You can control the formatting of messages like this.
# Fetch the logger Pyblish uses for all of its messageslog = logging.getLogger("pyblish")# Do what `basicConfig` does, except explicitly# and with control over where and how messages gohnd = logging.StreamHandler()fmt = logging.Formatter('%(message)s')hnd.setFormatter(fmt)log.addHandler(hnd)pyblish.api.discover()# Skipped: "collect_myplugin" (name 'pybddlish' is not defined)
%(message)s is one of the many variables available during formatting, see here for a full list.
basicConfig will register a handler too, and it's possible to have many. See
log.handlers for the ones currently registered, it's a plain Python
list that you can clear to get rid of them.
Autodesk Maya is special, it runs the equivalent of
basicConfig under-the-hood at startup. Which means that you always see these messages whether you want to or not. You can remove handlers, and edit them despite this.
Standalone Python doesn't have any handlers registered, and needs something like the above.
