A wrapper on top of winston, to be shared across all nodeswork repos.


$ npm install --save @nodeswork/logger

How to use

Nodeswork Logger uses object's properties to create new winston instances each time when the logger reference being called. This is because we set label to the actual file path of the caller. So for performance consideration, reference the logger object at the top of the file where it is used.

Default Logger

// Javascript
{ logger } = require('logger');"This is a test log.");
logger.error("Want to see an error log.");

Add MongoDB Transport

// Javascript
var winstonMongoDB = require('winston-mongodb');
var nwLogger       = require('@nodeswork/logger');
nwLogger.level     = process.env == 'production' ? 'warn' : 'info';
  nwLogger.transport(winston.transports.MongoDB, {
    db:         mongoose.connections[0].db,
    collection: 'logs',

Setup Requests Log

// Javascript
var dailyRotate    = require('winston-daily-rotate-file');
nwLogger.define('requestLogger', {
  level:        'info',
  transports: [
    nwLogger.transport(winston.transports.MongoDB, {
      db:         mongoose.connections[0].db,
      collection: 'logs.requests',
    nwLogger.transport(winston.transports.DailyRotateFile, {
      filename:     './requests.log',
      datePattern:  'yyyy-MM-dd.',
      json:         false,
      prepend:      true,
var { requestLog } = require('logger');"This is a request.");

Reset the label

// Javascript
winston    = require('winston');
{ logger } = require('logger');
logger.resetLabel(3); // set the 4th file name in the call stack as label
logger.resetLabel('labelString'); // set 'labelString' as the label

For TypeScript

A little redundant but LOG has LoggerInstance type.

// TypeScript
import * as logger from '@nodeswork/logger'
let LOG = logger.getLogger('logger');"hello world");

Simpler but lost log type.

// TypeScript
let { logger } = require('@nodeswork/logger');'hello world');
