nlogger

nlogger is a Node.js logging library that can

  • print messages with module name and current line number so you know from where it was called
  • print messages in color
  • print parameters in message
  • be configured from file

Usage

Use npm or download. Then add to your code:

var logger = require('nlogger').logger(module);

module is object defined automatically by Node.js. If you don't want automatic module names, replace it with your desired string name.

logger.info(message);
logger.info(message, variable, message, variable...);

Examples

var logger = require('nlogger').logger(module);
logger.info('Info message');
logger.debug('Debug message');
logger.warn('Warning message');
logger.error('Error message');
logger.trace('Trace message');
logger.info('Array = ', [1, 2, 3, 4], ', Object = ', {one: 1, two: 2});
