I think we’ve all come upon this before, but when you want to debug a celery task in prod, it’s annoying because
logging.error(“Something bad happened”)
does absolutely nothing! It turns out that celery has its own wrapper for the logging library that you have to use to make it work. All you have to do to make it work is replace `import logging` with
from celery.log import get_task_logger
logging = get_task_logger()
This logger will be named ‘celery.task.default’. I’ve added an entry to the settings.LOGGING for ‘celery.task’, so these will now get logged correctly.
