node_logger

Small logger module to wrap util.inspect and console.log and add colors.

Node Logger - Making debugging in the console a tiny bit easier.

npm install node_logger
var logger = require('node_logger');
 
var obj = {
  'prop1': 'value',
  'prop2': [1,2,3,4],
  'prop3'function() { console.log('test') }
}
 
//All of the following will print a nicely formatted JSON or Javascript object. Useful 
//as replacement for util.inspect() or console.log(). 
logger.log(obj);
logger.prettyPrint(obj);
logger.pp(obj);
 
 
//These will print regular string messages with colors. 
var msg = 'A log line';
 
logger.success(msg); //green 
logger.error(msg); //red 
logger.warn(msg); //yellow 
logger.info(msg); //cyan 

##Config

You can call logger.configure() with a settings object or key, value pair to change logger options.

Example:

logger.configure({ showTimestamp: true}); //or 
logger.configure('showTimestamp', true);

Options:

  • timestampShow: true|false // default: true. Will display a timestamp next to messages.
  • timestampFormat: "string" // default: 'MMM DD YYYY, HH:mm:ss'. Any format string that moment.js can process.
