marionette-js-logger

Realtime host -> desktop logging

Marionette JS Console plugin

Installs code into the client to buffer all of the logged console messages. Because of the presumed synchronous operation of marionette-js-runner, Messages are retrieved when explicitly requested or as an implict byproduct of waiting for specific log messages.

 
// create the plugin. This must run before startSession. 
client.plugin('logger', require('marionette-js-logger'));
 
client.startSession(function() {
  logGrabber = client.logger;
 
  // You can listen for the 'message' event, it will be fired when calls cause 
  // logs to be retrieved from the server. 
  logGrabber.on('message', function(msg) {
    msg.window; // The URI of the document/window the log happened in 
    msg.level; // log/info/warn/error/exception/debug 
    msg.message; // raw string of message 
    msg.filename; // source file log call was made from 
    msg.lineNumber; // line number where call was made 
    msg.functionName; // function name where call was made 
    msg.timeStamp; // standard JS timestamp; milliseconds since the epoch (UTC)  
  };
 
  // Explicitly fetch all available logs from the server, emitting 'message' 
  // events. 
  logGrabber.grabLogMessages();
 
  // Fetch all available logs from the server, but if there aren't any there 
  // yet, wait for at least one new message to be logged.  This will wait for 
  // at least one turn of the event loop before returning for efficiency reasons 
  // and to avoid mistaken understandings of the state of the device.  Do not 
  // depend on this to leave certain messages on the device. 
  logGrabber.grabAtLeastOneNewMessage();
 
  // Keep fetching logs from the server and calling the provided method until 
  // it returns true indicating it found the log message it wanted.  'message' 
  // events will still be emitted for all logs retrieved as a result of these 
  // calls.  While the function will only be called on messages until it returns 
  // true and will not be called for any messages retrieved after the first call 
  // that returns true, 'message' events will be emitted for ALL retrieved logs. 
  // Also, subsequent calls to waitForLogMessage will only call the function 
  // for newly retrieved logs. 
  logGrabber.waitForLogMessage(function checksEveryNewMessage(msg) {
    return /my car keys/.test(msg.message);
  });
 
  client.executeScript(function() {
    // this works too but more importantly all other console.log's in content work too 
    console.log(document.location.href);
  });
 
  client.deleteSession();
});
