winex

Winston-based Express logging middleware. Extracts basic metadata from the request and logs out on request end (so the status code of an HTTP response is captured).

Install

The usual

npm install winex

Although Winex uses Winston, it does not actually provide winston - the caller must provide a configured Winston logger object. So you get to (and must) choose your own version of Winston to add as a project dependency.

Middleware

Winex provides a basic middleware hook that attaches a Winston logger to req.locals._log that can be used within any middleware or request handlers. Add the middleware like:

var express = require('express'),
  // Real winston logger.
  winston = require('winston'),
  winLogger = new winston.Logger(),
  // Winex wrapper.
  winex = require('winex'),
  Log = winex.factory(winLogger),
  app = express.createServer();

app.configure(function () {
  // Log all requests.
  app.use(Log.middleware);
});

Handlers

Winex also provides some express / general exception handlers that will be documented at some point in the future.
