    Installation

    Use NPM

    $ npm install better-console

    A better console for Node.js

    better-console is a drop-in replacement for node's default console which gives you colors and more methods in console.

    How to use it

    You can override console object itself or assign better console to another variable. It's completely safe to override the native console object because better console calls native console methods for methods that are already available in it.

    var console = require('better-console');
    
    console.log("This is a log information");
    console.warn("Warning!");
    console.info("Information");
    console.table([ [1,2], [3,4] ]);
    console.time("Timer");
    console.timeEnd("Timer");
    console.dir(myObject);
    
    

    Methods

    console.log, console.warn, console.error, console.info, console.debug, console.dir, console.trace

    These methods work exactly same as native console methods but with colors for warn, info or error

    console.clear

    Clears the screen

    console.table

    Draws a table of data if a 2d array or object passed to it

    console.time

    Creates a new timer under the given name. Call console.timeEnd(name) with the same name to stop the timer and print the time elapsed.

    console.timeEnd

    Stops a timer created by a call to console.time(name) and write the time

    console.trace

    Prints a stack trace of JavaScript execution at the point where it is called. The stack trace details the functions on the stack, as well as the values that were passed as arguments to each function.

    console.count

    Writes number of times each argument is called with blue color

    TODOs

    • Use Unicode icons to mimic browser console icons in OSX
    • Make console.trace more detailed with V8 flags
