homey-syslog

A simple library to enable Homey apps to log to a remote syslog server. This requires that you have a syslog server running somewhere in your network, configured to accept external connections from syslog clients.

This library patches the built-in Homey logging code so anything that gets logged will also be logged to the syslog server.

Installation

$ npm i homey-syslog

Usage

In your apps app.js:

require('homey-syslog')([ SYSLOG_SERVER ][, opts]);

SYSLOG_SERVER is the name or IP-address of your syslog server.

It's optional iff you provide Homey.env.SYSLOG_HOST, i.e. if you have a file env.json that defines it:

{ "SYSLOG_HOST" : "11.22.33.44" }

Valid options:

  • port : TCP/UDP port for the syslog server. Defaults to Homey.env.SYSLOG_PORT, or 514 otherwise.
  • transport: either tcp or udp (the default)
  • globalHandlers: when true, will hook uncaughtException and unhandledRejection to log these errors over syslog. Defaults to Homey.env.SYSLOG_GLOBALHANDLERS === true.

Example

require('homey-syslog')('192.168.1.123', {
  port           : 514,
  transport      : 'tcp'
  globalHandlers : true,
});

DON'T USE IN PRODUCTION CODE

The purpose of this library is to aid during development of Homey apps, it's not intended to be used for apps in production.

An option could be to explicitly set a DEBUG environment variable in env.json, and only load this library when that variable evaluates to true:

// env.json
{ "DEBUG" : "true", "SYSLOG_HOST" : "..." }

// app.js
if (Homey.env.DEBUG === 'true') {
  require('homey-syslog')(...);
}

install

npm i homey-syslog
