What is it?

A simpler Log4j inspired logger module for Angular 2. Think of it as "Log4ng" ... get it?

This is a work in progress and is not ready for production, use with care, the API can and will change.

This is a fork of https://github.com/code-chunks/angular2-logger with changes build process



  1. Install the npm module.

    npm install --save @orkisz/angular2-logger

  2. Setup the Provider.

    In app.module.ts:

     import { NgModule }      from '@angular/core';
     import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
     import { AppComponent }  from './app.component';
     import { Logger } from '@orkisz/angular2-logger"; // ADD THIS
         imports:      [ BrowserModule ],
         declarations: [ AppComponent ],
         bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ],
         providers:    [ Logger ] // AND THIS
     export class AppModule { }
  3. Inject the logger into your objects and use it.

     export class AppComponent(){
     	constructor( private _logger: Logger ){
     		this._logger.error('This is a priority level 1 error message...');
     		this._logger.warn('This is a priority level 2 warning message...');
     		this._logger.info('This is a priority level 3 warning message...');
     		this._logger.debug('This is a priority level 4 debug message...');
     		this._logger.log('This is a priority level 5 log message...');

By default the logger level will be set to Level.WARN, so you'll only see Warning and Error messages.

Going deeper...

In order to see all of the messages you just need to change the logger message hierarchy level, you can do so:

  • Dynamically using the console:

      logger.level = logger.Level.LOG; // same as: logger.level = 5;      
  • Or using one of the predefined configuration providers:

      import { LOG_LOGGER_PROVIDERS } from '@orkisz/angular2-logger';
          providers:    [ LOG_LOGGER_PROVIDERS ]
      export class AppModule { }

    The available Providers are:


Note: If you change the level of the Logger dynamically, that setting will be lost upon refreshing the page and set back to its default configured setting. If you want the logger to keep this setting changed, store it in the localStorage by doing:

logger.store() // and logger.unstore() to undo.

Custom Configuration

If the Providers included don't meet your needs you can configure the default logger configuration by Providing custom properties:

import { Logger, Options } from '@orkisz/angular2-logger';

    providers:    [ 
        { provide: Options, useValue: { store: false } },
export class AppModule { }

As you can see you don't have to specify all of them, just the ones you want to override.

The available configuration options are:

  • level:Level - How much detail you want to see in the logs; Level.ERROR (1) being the less detailed and Level.LOG (5) being the most. Defaults to Level.WARN (2).

    The Hierarchy of the messages is as follows from highest to lowest priority:

    0.- Level.OFF

    1.- Level.ERROR

    2.- Level.WARN

    3.- Level.INFO

    4.- Level.DEBUG

    5.- Level.LOG

    The Logger will log everything with higher or equal priority to the current logger.level set.

  • global:boolean - Whether or not you want the created logger object to be exposed in the global scope. Defaults to true.

  • globalAs:string - The window's property name that will hold the logger object created. Defaults to 'logger'.

  • store:boolean - Whether you want the level config to be saved in the local storage so it doesn't get lost when you refresh. Defaults to false.

  • storeAs:string - The local storage key that will be used to save the level config if the store setting is true. Defaults to 'angular2.logger.level'.

You can also override the default configuration options by extending the Options and injecting yours instead:

// from custom-logger-options.ts
@Injectable() export class CustomLoggerOptions(){
    store: true

// from app.module.ts
    providers:    [ 
        { provide: Options, useClass: CustomLoggerOptions },

Class names like Options and Level might be too common, if you get a conflict you can rename them like this:

import { Logger, Options as LoggerOptions, Level as LoggerLevel } from '@orkisz/angular2-logger';

    providers:    [ 
        { provide: LoggerOptions, useValue: { level: LoggerLevel.WARN } }
