Usage

var bunyan = require('bunyan');
var remoteBunyan = require('bunyan-remote');
 
var logger = bunyan.createLogger({
  name: 'example-app'
});
 
logger.addStream(remoteBunyan());
 
 
logger.info('Start server...');
 

Options

bunyan-remote can be used with the following optional properties:

  • allowedIPs: An array of IP expressions where "" signifys any (e.g 10. - all IP's that start with 10.X.X.X)
  • auth: One of the following options:
    • remoteBunyan.AUTH_NONE: No authentication required by Bunyan Remote DevTool.
    • remoteBunyan.AUTH_KEY: Prompt Bunyan Remote DevTool for a key.
    • remoteBunyan.AUTH_USER: Prompt Bunyan Remote DevTool for a username and password.
  • authenticate: A string, or a function which verifies the authentcation of the client.

Authentication

When using AUTH_KEY or AUTH_USER, you can set the authenticate property to either a string or a function.

If auth is set to AUTH_KEY then the authenticate property will be compared to a regular token string.

If auth is set to AUTH_USER then the authenticate property will be compared to a combination of the username and password in the format username:password.

Examples

The following example uses a simple key for authentication:

logger.addStream(remoteBunyan({
  auth: remoteBunyan.AUTH_KEY,
  authentication: 'MY-SECRET-KEY'
}));

You can also specify a function that returns a boolean wether to allow or deny the authentication request:

var TOKENS = [ 'SECRET-KEY-1', 'SECRET-KEY-2' ];
logger.addStream(remoteBunyan({
  auth: remoteBunyan.AUTH_KEY,
  authentication: function (token) {
    return TOKENS.indexOf(token) !== -1;
  }
}));

If you're working with asynchronous operations you can do one of two things. One return function (accept, reject) where the parameters indicate to accept/reject the request:

logger.addStream(remoteBunyan({
  auth: remoteBunyan.AUTH_USER,
  authentication: function (token) {
    return function (accept, reject) {
      fs.readFile('./credentials.txt', { encoding: 'utf8' }, function (data) {
        var tokens = data.split('\n');
        if (tokens.indexOf(token) >= 0) {
          accept();
        } else {
          reject();
        }
      });
    };
  }
}));

or better yet return an ES6 Promise: (recommended)

logger.addStream(remoteBunyan({
  auth: remoteBunyan.AUTH_USER,
  authentication: function (token) {
    return new Promise(function (accept, reject) {
      fs.readFile('./credentials.txt', { encoding: 'utf8' }, function (data) {
        var tokens = data.split('\n');
        if (tokens.indexOf(token) >= 0) {
          accept();
        } else {
          reject();
        }
      });
    };
  }
}));
