console-trace

Extends the native Node.JS console object to prefix logging functions with the CallSite information.

To read more about runtime stack trace introspection you can refer to this article.

How to use

require('console-trace')

You can add the t or trace getter to your calls to obtain a stacktrace:

console.t.log('a');
console.trace.log('aaa');

You can also make every console call trace:

console.traceAlways = true;

To disable colors completely, set the following:

console.traceColors = false;

To customize the string that's prefixed to the calls, override the console.traceFormat function.

Beyond console

If you have more sophisticated logging needs, or don't wish to extend console, I suggest you look at tracer.
