    cyberblast logger

    A simple logger for node

    Build Status npm version


    Sample usage:

    const { Logger, severity } = require('@cyberblast/logger');
    // Optional file path argument. Defaults to './logger.json'
    const logger = new Logger('./logger.json');
    // init will create log files and open file streams
    await logger.init();
    // define categories in config file or create them in code (or both)
    // register additional custom log handlers
    // attach callbacks to onError, onWarning, onInfo and onVerbose
    logger.onWarning(log => {
      console.warn(`Ooops: ${log.message}. Details: ${JSON.stringify(}`);
    // 'onLog' catches them all
    logger.onLog(log => {
      console.log(`${log.severity}: ${log.message}`);
    // 'on' allows to attach to custom filter rules (defined in config file)
    logger.on('BackendError', log => {
      // sample function call not part of this repo:
    // trigger some log events
    logger.logVerbose('logger ready');
    logger.logWarning('Do the Bartman', logger.category.Sample);
    // or more explicit with some sample additional payload
      category: logger.category.BackendError,
      severity: severity.Error,
      message: 'storage capacity reached!',
      data: ['Drive C', {usage: '100%'}]
    // close file streams gracefully


    Sample configuration:

      "categories": ["webserver"],
      "rules": [
          "name": "all",
          "console": true
          "name": "error",
          "filePath": "./log/",
          "severity": "Error"
          "name": "webserver",
          "category": "webserver",
          "filePath": "./log/",
          "severity": "Info"


    optional, array of strings
    List of predefined log categories. Configured categories will be available via category property at Logger class. However, preconfiguring categories is not mandatory to use log categories in logData and rules at all.

    logger.logWarning('Do the Bartman', logger.category.Sample);


    Rules define what to do with a certain log case.

    • name
      required, string
      Every rules needs a unique name. Logfiles will get the name of the rule. You can also hook into log events using the rule name, like:
      logger.on('BackendError', log => {
      Where 'BackendError' would be the name of the rule. This only works only for rules with names not matching the reserved word "any" or a severity name.
    • category
      optional, string
      Log cases can have categories. If you specify a rule category, that rule will only be executed when rule category and log category match.
    • severity
      optional, string
      Log cases can have a severity. If you specify a rule severity, that rule will only be executed, if rule severity and log severity match or the log severity is higer. Also depends on 'severityOnly' rule property.
      If you don't specify a rule severity, that rule will run for all severities.
      You can also hook into log events using the severity name, like:
      logger.on('Warning', log => {
    • severityOnly
      optional, boolean
      Defaults to false.
      Id severityOnly is set to true, rule severity and log case severity must exactly match to execute the rule. Otherwise the log case severity must match or be higher.
    • console
      optional, boolean
      Defaults to false. If console is set to true, log messages will be send to console.
    • filePath
      optional, string
      If filePath is set, Logger will create log files at that path. The log file name will have the format <>.log.
      Must be a valid path string according to Node Path module. It must point to a directory. If that directory does not exist, it will be created.
      Directory and logfile creation happens immediately upon Logger initialization.
      await logger.init();
