Replaces the console object with a more stylish and practical way of displaying messages.

What it does

Replaces your console object with a more stylish and practical way of displaying notices,warn,info,debug,log and errors.
It automagically shows you the line number and filename where the command was executed, along with a timestamp.
There is also the ability to catch uncaughtExceptions, disable the output colors, and log to file.
You can also setup filters if you want to hide certain debug message types.

You can find a demo on how it looks here


Getting Started

npm install console-debug
var Debug = require('console-debug');
var console = new Debug({
uncaughtExceptionCatch: false,      // Do we want to catch uncaughtExceptions? 
consoleFilter: ['LOG', 'WARN'],     // Filter these console output types 
logToFile: true,                    // if true, will put console output in a log file folder called 'logs' 
logFilter: ['LOG','DEBUG','INFO'],  // Examples: Filter these types to not log to file 
colors: true                        // do we want pretty pony colors in our console output? 
console.log("I am a log!");
console.warn("I am a warn!");
console.error("I am a error!");
console.debug("I am a debug!");"I am a info!");
// can also display objects 
obj = {
test1: [1,2,3,4],
test3: ["ohai","there"],
test4: true
