Since python offers the powerful logging class, django.core.management.base.BaseCommand should use it to output messages instead of using custom output wrappers (django.core.management.base.OutputWrapper).
Doing so, we could override those loggers in the settings.py file.
Instead of having two wrappers in a command and having to do:
class Command(BaseCommand): def handle(self): self.stdout.write('this is an info message') self.stderr.write('this is an error message')
We could do
class Command(BaseCommand): def handle(self): self.output.info('this is an info message') self.output.error('this is an error message') # and even self.output.warning('this is a warning message')
The style_func and ending arguments that the django.core.management.base.OutputWrapper.write method takes could be removed and be configured at once in a overriding custom logger.
