    SUMMARY

    A simple logging library that combines the simple APIs of Ruby's logger.rb and browser-js console.log()

    USAGE

    A logger has 5 different levels of logging in a specific order:

    'fatal', 'error', 'warn', 'info', 'debug'
    

    Each of these log levels has its own method on the logging instance. You can set the maximum log level on a logger at runtime.

    By default, a logger writes to STDOUT, but given a writeable file path, it will log directly to a file.

    Instantiation:

    // node/common.js style 
    var logger = require('./logger').createLogger(); // logs to STDOUT
    var logger = require('./logger').createLogger('development.log'); // logs to a file
    

    Logging:

    Any of the logging methods take n arguments, which are each joined by ' ' (similar to console.log()). If an argument is not a string, it is string-ified by sys.inspect()

    logger.info('loading an array', [1,2,3], 'now!');
    //=> info [Sat Jun 12 2010 01:12:05 GMT-0400 (EDT)]  loading an array [ 1, 2, 3, [length]: 3 ] now!
    logger.debug('this wont be logged');
    //=> false
    logger.setLevel('debug');
    logger.debug('this will be logged now');
    //=> debug [Sat Jun 12 2010 01:12:54 GMT-0400 (EDT)]  this will be logged now
    

    Customization:

    You can completely customize the look of the log by overriding the format() method on a logger.

    logger.format = function(level, date, message) {
      return date.getTime().toString() + "; " + message;
    };
    logger.debug('message');
    //=> 1276365362167;  message
