go-debug

Conditional debug logging for Go libraries.

View the docs.

Installation

$ go get github.com/tj/go-debug

Example

package main

import . "github.com/tj/go-debug"
import "time"

var debug = Debug("single")

func main() {
  for {
    debug("sending mail")
    debug("send email to %s", "tobi@segment.io")
    debug("send email to %s", "loki@segment.io")
    debug("send email to %s", "jane@segment.io")
    time.Sleep(500 * time.Millisecond)
  }
}

If you run the program with the DEBUG=* environment variable you will see:

15:58:15.115 34us   33us   single - sending mail
15:58:15.116 3us    3us    single - send email to tobi@segment.io
15:58:15.116 1us    1us    single - send email to loki@segment.io
15:58:15.116 1us    1us    single - send email to jane@segment.io

15:58:16.625 4us    4us    single - send email to loki@segment.io
15:58:16.625 5us    5us    single - send email to jane@segment.io

A timestamp and two deltas are displayed. The timestamp consists of hour, minute, second and microseconds. The left-most delta is relative to the previous debug call of any name, followed by a delta specific to that debug function. These may be useful to identify timing issues and potential bottlenecks.

The DEBUG environment variable

Executables often support --verbose flags for conditional logging, however libraries typically either require altering your code to enable logging, or simply omit logging all together. go-debug allows conditional logging to be enabled via the DEBUG environment variable, where one or more patterns may be specified.

For example suppose your application has several models and you want to output logs for users only, you might use DEBUG=models:user. In contrast if you wanted to see what all database activity was you might use DEBUG=models:*, or if you're love being swamped with logs: DEBUG=*. You may also specify a list of names delimited by a comma, for example DEBUG=mongo,redis:*.

The name given should be the package name, however you can use whatever you like.

Functions

func Disable

func Disable()

Disable all pattern matching. This function is thread-safe.

func Enable

func Enable(pattern string)

Enable the given debug `pattern`. Patterns take a glob-like form, for example if you wanted to enable everything, just use "*", or if you had a library named mongodb you could use "mongodb:connection", or "mongodb:*". Multiple matches can be made with a comma, for example "mongo*,redis*".

This function is thread-safe.

Example
Enable("mongo:connection")
Enable("mongo:*")
Enable("foo,bar,baz")
Enable("*")
Output:

func SetWriter

func SetWriter(w io.Writer)

SetWriter replaces the default of os.Stderr with `w`.

Types

type DebugFunction

type DebugFunction func(string, ...interface{})

Debugger function.

func Debug

func Debug(name string) DebugFunction

Debug creates a debug function for `name` which you call with printf-style arguments in your application or library.

Example
var debug = Debug("single")

for {
	debug("sending mail")
	debug("send email to %s", "tobi@segment.io")
	debug("send email to %s", "loki@segment.io")
	debug("send email to %s", "jane@segment.io")
	time.Sleep(500 * time.Millisecond)
}
