Is there a simple logging plugin?

I would like to see a log that only shows simple events like print started, cancelled, ended, error, etc. I tried using the built-in logs set to INFO and I was buried in useless junk like a zillion lines of Checking SoC internal temperature.

Is there such a plugin?

EDIT: And I'd like a simple view in the tabbed area.

EDIT2: And it could be named history or events to avoid confusion with the built-in logs.

The closest one I've seen relative to this is the PrintHistory plugin, which is currently being rebooted and under development by @OllisGit. It's repository is over here.

Edit: But you may be able to achieve cleaner logging by setting the default octoprint to error, to info.

I want to try printJobHistory but I can't install it. (crosspost with

I downloaded the zip file, unzipped it into a folder in the pi home dir, and ran sudo python ~/log/ . I got the error Could not import OctoPrint's setuptools, are you sure you are running that under the same python installation that OctoPrint is installed under? . Help?

Can somone tell me what "same python installation" means? And in general, what does it mean to run or install something "under"?

Actually, the logging in OctoPrint is rather customizable. Visit Settings -> Logging.
