I would like to configure the log directory to be elsewhere in my launch.py file.

I found what appears to be the function that I need to call, but how?

I'm not too sure how good an example this is, but the test for this feature might be useful?

Thanks for the hint @KenYN!

import os
from datetime import datetime
import launch

starttime = datetime.utcnow()
log_dir = "/path/log/" + starttime.strftime("launch_%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S/")
os.mkdir(log_dir)
launch.logging.reset()
launch.logging.launch_config.log_dir = log_dir

Hi,

I tried this answer. It only puts the log from the launch file to the specified log folder. the log from the nodes still go to the default log folder. Is that your experience as well?
