Lite Virtual Logger and Writer

How to use it?

Create a logger object:

var LogAdapter = require('logolite').LogAdapter;

// connect to a logger instance (winston)
var winston = require('winston');
LogAdapter.connectTo(new winston.Logger({
	transports: [
		new winston.transports.Console({
			level: 'debug',
			json: false,
			timestamp: true,
			colorize: true

// or a bunyan logger instance instead
var bunyan = require('bunyan');
	name: 'myApplication',
	level: 'debug'

// or a log4js logger instance
var log4js = require('log4js');
var log4jsLogger = log4js.getLogger();
log4jsLogger.level = 'debug';

// create a logger
var logger = LogAdapter.getLogger();

Create a LogTracer object and put message and loginfo into it:

var LogTracer = require('logolite').LogTracer;

var appTracer = LogTracer.ROOT.branch({
	key: 'appId',
	value: LogTracer.getLogID()

// ... your code here ...

// .has() is an alias of .isEnabledFor() method;
// .add() a map (key/value), .put() a single field (key, value)
logger.has('info') && logger.log('info', appTracer
		message: 'app level logging message',
		intValue: 123,
		boolValue: true,
		objectData: { key1: 'value 1', key2: 'value 2' },
		strValue: 'simple string'
	.put('singleField', 'put a single key/value')
	.put('anotherField', 1024)
		text: 'Message - integer ${intValue}, str: ${strValue}!'

// ... your code here ...

// create a child tracer object
var subLevel = appTracer.branch({
	key: 'subLevel',
	value: LogTracer.getLogID()

logger.has('debug') && logger.log('debug', subLevel
		name: 'Foo',
		percent: 51
		text: '${percent}% completed...'

logger.has('debug') && logger.log('debug', subLevel
		name: 'Foo',
		percent: 100
		text: '${percent}% completed. The task "${name}" has done.'

// ... your code here ...
