    winston-riak

    A Riak transport for winston.

    Installation

    Installing npm (node package manager)

      $ curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

    Installing winston-riak

      $ npm install winston
      $ npm install winston-riak

    Motivation

    tldr;?: To break the winston codebase into small modules that work together.

    The winston codebase has been growing significantly with contributions and other logging transports. This is awesome. However, taking a ton of additional dependencies just to do something simple like logging to the Console and a File is overkill.

    Usage

      var winston = require('winston');
      
      // 
      // Requiring `winston-riak` will expose  
      // `winston.transports.Riak` 
      // 
      require('winston-riak').Riak;
      
      winston.add(winston.transports.Riak, options);

    In addition to the options accepted by the riak-js client, the Riak transport also accepts the following options. It is worth noting that the riak-js debug option is set to false by default:

    • level: Level of messages that this transport should log.
    • bucket: The name of the Riak bucket you wish your logs to be in or a function to generate bucket names dynamically.
      // Use a single bucket for all your logs 
      var singleBucketTransport = new (winston.transports.Riak)({ bucket: 'some-logs-go-here' });
      
      // Generate a dynamic bucket based on the date and level 
      var dynamicBucketTransport = new (winston.transports.Riak)({
        bucket: function (level, msg, meta, now) {
          var d = new Date(now);
          return level + [d.getDate(), d.getMonth(), d.getFullYear()].join('-');
        }
      });
