ctxobj

Objects with context, especially good for contextual logging

ctxobj

Adds context to objects. Good for contextual logging.

Decorates obj with a context. pushctx or popctx will extende context.

var ctxobj = require('ctxobj');
 
// just an object
var obj0 = { x: 1, y: { val: 2 } };
 
// decorate with context
var obj1 = ctxobj.new(obj0);
 
// push and pop data to the context
obj1.pushctx('c1')
obj1.pushctx('c2a').pushctx('c2b')
obj1.popctx().popctx();
 
// enumarate contexts
obj1.forEachCtx(function(c) {
  console.log(c);
});

Output:

c1

Decorates console-like objects with a context that is prepended to each console.xxx() call.

var ctxobj = require('ctxobj');
 
var log0 = ctxobj.console(console);
log0.info('no context yet');
 
var i = 0;
var log1 = log0.pushctx('c1').pushctx(function() { return i++; });
log1.warn('now with a two items in the context');
log1.info('yo yo yo');
 
var log2 = log1.popctx();
log2.error('only one item in the context now');

Output:

no context yet
[c1][0] now with a two items in the context
[c1][1] yo yo yo
[c1] only one item in the context now

Some sugar:

Pushes a timestamp function to the context

Pushes file name and line number of log line to the context (skipping skip frames).
