Installation

$ npm install jogger

Usage

var Jogger = require('../jogger.js');
var Log    = new Jogger({
    colorize: false,            // color messages under Node.js if true
    filter  : null,             // a RegExp object used to filter messages
    level   : Jogger.Level.w,   // will output errors and warnings only
    outputs : [                 // will output to stdout and "LOG" file
        process.stdout,
        require('fs').createWriteStream('LOG')
    ],
    port    : 3737              // optional, will listen to the specified port, see below
});

Log.e('Tag', '%s message', 'error');
Log.w('Tag', '%s message', 'warning');
Log.i('Tag', '%s message', 'info');
Log.d('Tag', '%s message', 'debug');


// change log level:
Log.level = Jogger.Level.d;

// update the filter:
Log.filter = new RegExp(/Tag/);

Change level and filter attributes from outside
