To use this Syslog transport in log4js-node, you simply need to 'npm install' it and add it as an appender

Configuration file example:

    "appenders": [
            "type": "log4js-ain2", 
            "tag": "SYSLOG_TAG", 
            "facility": "daemon", 
            "hostname": "SYSLOG_SERVER", 
            "port": SYSLOG_PORT

Code example:

var log4js = require('log4js');

    appenders: [ 
            type: 'log4js-ain2', 
            tag: 'SYSLOG_TAG', 
            facility: 'daemon', 
            hostname: 'SYSLOG_SERVER', 
            port: SYSLOG_PORT

var logger = log4js.getLogger('log4js-ain2-tester');

logger.trace('trace -Entering cheese testing');
logger.debug('debug - Got cheese.');
logger.info('info - Cheese is Gouda.');
logger.warn('warn - Cheese is quite smelly.');
logger.error('error -Cheese is too ripe!');
