"Thus, if a LOGGER is configured inside settings.py, we use that. Otherwise, we just use vanilla logging functions with the global logging configuration. Nice and sweet."

Naturally, the logger can be anything described here, I'm just using the RotatingFileHandler as an example because that's what I was using in my project.

#in settings.py

LOG_FILENAME = '/var/log/somefile.log'

logger = logging.getLogger('foo')
logger.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
handler = logging.handlers.RotatingFileHandler(filename=LOG_FILENAME, maxBytes=1000000000, backupCount=5)
FORMAT = "[ %(asctime)s  %(levelname)s ] %(message)s"
formatter = logging.Formatter(FORMAT)
handler.setFormatter(formatter)
handler.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
logger.addHandler(handler)

LOGGER = logger

#to use in apps/modules:
try:
    logging = settings.LOGGERG
except AttributeError:
    import logging
