suppress Scrapy Item printed in logs after pipeline

Another approach is to override the __repr__ method of the Item subclasses to selectively choose which attributes (if any) to print at the end of the pipeline:

from scrapy.item import Item, Field
class MyItem(Item):
    attr1 = Field()
    attr2 = Field()
    # ...
    attrN = Field()

    def __repr__(self):
        """only print out attr1 after exiting the Pipeline"""
        return repr({"attr1": self.attr1})

This way, you can keep the log level at DEBUG and show only the attributes that you want to see coming out of the pipeline (to check attr1, for example).
