    About

    I wanted to be able to have chattier daemons running in development, and more succinct logging in production but wanted to keep the simplicity of using console.log() etc.

    Normally I pass in a granular verboseness level via arguments to control the verbosity level for the running process.

    Installation

    npm install --save verbosity

    Examples

    Simply override the built in console object:

    import {createConsole} from 'verbosity'
     
    const console = createConsole({
      outStream: process.stdout,
      errorStream: process.stderr,
      verbosity: 5
    })
     
    console.log('Works like normal...')
    console.debug('...but now controllable.')
     
    console.verbosity(3) // Use numbered levels 5 (debug) to 1 (error)
     
    console.debug('...this isn’t printed now.')
     
    console.canWrite(5) && console.dir({print: 'this won’t.'})
     
    console.verbosity('debug') // Use named levels [debug, info, log, warning, error]
     
    console.canWrite(5) && console.dir({print: 'this will now.'})

    This will direct all console output to stderr, but silence 'info' and 'debug' messages.

    import {createConsole} from 'verbosity'
     
    const console = createConsole({
      outStream: process.stderr,
      verbosity: 3
    })
     
    console.log('Picked brown jacket...') // Printed
    console.debug('Purple tie chosen...') // Not printed
    console.warn("That tie doesn't go with that jacket.") // Printed

    Or go mad with making up any number of custom console writers.

    import {createConsole} from 'verbosity'
     
    const myUberConsole = createConsole({
      outStream: myFancyWriteableStream,
      verbosity: 5
    })
     
    myUberConsole.panic('Core Flux Capacitor Meltdown!')
