Configuration Options

Configuration options needs to passed during the initialization. All these options are optional. Example

logger.initialize('ApplicationName', {
    logLevelFile: 0,                    // Log level for file
    logLevelConsole: 0,                 // Log level for STDOUT/STDERR
    logDirectory: 'logs/',              // Log directory
    customBannerHeaders: 'This is a custom banner'  // Custom Log Banner
});

Log Level

Log levels margins are as follow. You may declare your own log codes within the range -1 <= logLevel <= 10

DISABLED: -1
DEBUG: 0
INFO: 4
WARNING: 8
CRITICAL: 10

Log File

The log file will be saved as <ApplicationName>.log in the current working directory. Any existing log file with the same name will be renamed to following format <ApplicationName>.<ProcessID>.<ProcessStartTime>.log. Therefore the log file of the currently running process is always <ApplicationName>.log. You can change the log directory using the following option

logDirectory: './ApplicationLogs'

Sets the log level for the file output. The default value is 0 (LOG_LEVEL_DEBUG). Setting log level to -1 or any negative number will disable the log file.

logLevelFile: 0

Setting a maximum log file size will allow you to switch to new log file when the file size limit is reached. This is usefull to split log files. You must provide the size limit in Bytes.

maximumLogFieSize: 102400000

You can add a custom banner to log file

customBannerHeaders: 'This is a custom banner'

Console Log

Set the log level for the console output. The default value is 4 (LOG_LEVEL_INFO). Setting log level to -1 or any negative number will disable the console output.

logLevelConsole: 0

Callback

You can set a callback function whenever a log event is fired. This callback function should accept on parameter.

function myCallbackFunction(obj) {
    console.log('CALLBACK OUTPUT:', obj);
}
 
logger.initialize('FrontEndDriver', {
    callbackLogEvent: myCallbackFunction
});

The object passed into the function will be in following example format

{
    alias: 'info',
    message: 'Sample log message',
    code: 'INFO',
    color: 'red',
    logLevel: 4,
    time: '20:05:49',
    date: '2020/02/21',
    object: {}
}

Set the log level for the callback. The default value is 0 (LOG_LEVEL_DEBUG). Setting log level to -1 or any negative number will disable the callback.

logLevelCallback: 0

Timezone

You can change the logging timezone with the following option. Default timezone is UTC You can find a list of TimeZones here : https://timezonedb.com/time-zones

timezone: 'Asia/Colombo'

Development Mode
