jog-stdstore

Provides StdStore for jog.

build status

Usage

var StdStore = require('jog-stdstore')
  , jog = require('jog')
  , log = jog(new StdStore());

log.info('something cool', {name: 'Cool thing'});

// Logging output sent to stdout and stderr

Options

An options hash can be passed to the StdStore constructor with the following keys:

  • inStream - A readable stream (defaults to process.stdin).
  • errStream - A writable stream for 'error' and 'warn' level logs. (defaults
              to `process.stderr`).
    
  • outStream - A writable stream for 'info' and 'debug' level logs. (defaults
              to `process.stdout`).
    
  • redirect - Send all output to the outStream, instead of out and err.

Using with the joli(1)

After configuring your app to log via the StdStore, all your logging output will be in the console, but it will be full JSON objects.

To make some sense of your logs I recommend checking out joli.

Example

Normal output ...

$ node myapp.js
{type: "user authenticated", uid: 24, timestamp: 1234789091823}
{type: "user authenticated", uid: 14, timestamp: 1234789091823}
{type: "request", path: "/", timestamp: 1234789091823}
{type: "request", path: "/about", timestamp: 1234789091823}
{type: "query", query: "SELECT * FROM fun", timestamp: 1234789091823}
{type: "request", path: "/", timestamp: 1234789091823}
{type: "query", query: "DELETE * FROM users", timestamp: 1234789091823}
{type: "user authenticated", uid: 500, timestamp: 1234789091823}

Using joli ...

$ node myapp.js 2>&1 | joli -l --map type
user authenticated
user authenticated
request
request
query
request
query
user authenticated

Or ...

$ node myapp.js 2>&1 | joli -l --map "'Request: ' + _.path" --filter "_.type === 'request'"
Request: /
Request: /about
Request: /

Joli Exposes a similar CLI to jog(1) but with support for reading from stdin as well as using saved 'styles' and 'outputters'.
