A winston-powered logging daemon


A logging server built on top of winston, capable of receiving, querying, and streaming logs.

Each winstond server can utilize up to 3 different services, which leverage the main capabilities of a winston transport.

  • collect - log collection
  • query - querying logs
  • stream - streaming logs
var winstond = require('winstond');
var server = winstond.nssocket.createServer({
  services: ['collect', 'query', 'stream'],
  port: 9003
server.add(winstond.transports.File, {
  filename: __dirname + '/foo.log'
var winston = require('winston');
winston.add(require('winston-nssocket').Nssocket, {
  host: 'localhost',
  port: 9003
winston.log('info', 'Hello world!', {
  foo: 'bar'
});'log', function(log) {
winston.query({ start: 10 }, function(err, results) {
  if (err) throw err;

winstond supports http and nssocket backends.

$ npm install winstond -g
