Windows Log transport for Winston

Windows Event Log logger for node.js Winston module.

Installation

$ npm install winston-winlog
$ npm install winston

Usage

Configure :

  var winston = require('winston'),
      winlog = require("winston-winlog");

  winston.add(winlog.EventLog, { source: 'myapp' });
  winston.setLevels(winlog.config.levels);

Then you can do:

  winston.info("this is an info message");
  winston.warning("this is an warning message");
  winston.error("this is an error message");

And you will see

Custom event log

When adding the transport you can define a custom event log as follows:

  winston.add(winlog.EventLog, { source: 'myapp', eventLog: 'MyCustomEventLog' });

Then you will find your logs under "Applications and Services Logs"

How it works

This transport uses the module windows-eventlog to log events.

In order to write entries to the eventlog your application has to run with an elevated account: ie administrator or system account.

The transport will do nothing (doesn't throw!) if you run it on a platform other than win32.

Esta bueno, pero...

The only reason to use this adapter and not windows-eventlog directly is if you are working on a multi-platform project or you are already using winston.
