A simple Go logging package.

Table Of Contents

Overview

Go Log is a simple logging library inspired by the standard log package.

It was created because there was a lack of simple easy to use logging libraries in the Go ecosystem.

Features:

  • 1 line setup
  • Log levels: Debug, Info, Warn, Error, Fatal
  • Log output formatting via Go templates
  • Function names similar to log package
  • Advanced customizability if needed

See the GoDoc page for detailed usage instructions

Overview

Go Log is a simple to use logging library inspired by the standard `log` package.

It provides the: Debug, Info, Warn, Error, and Fatal log levels.

Go Log is easy to setup:

// logger will print normal messages to stdout and errors to stderr
logger := golog.NewLogger("example")

The logging API should be familiar to those who have used the standard `fmt` and `log` packages.

logger.Debug("hello debug")
logger.Debugf("hello %s", "debug")

logger.Info("hello info")
logger.Infof("hello %s", "info")

logger.Warn("hello warn")
logger.Warnf("hello %s", "warn")

logger.Error("hello error")
logger.Errorf("hello %s", "error")

logger.Fatal("hello fatal")
logger.Fatalf("hello %s", "fatal")

You can configure Go Log to only show messages of certain importance

logger.SetLevel(golog.DebugLevel)

logger.SetLevel(golog.InfoLevel)

logger.SetLevel(golog.WarnLevel)

logger.SetLevel(golog.ErrorLevel)

logger.SetLevel(golog.FatalLevel)

Log output format can be configured with Go templates

logger.SetFormatTmpl("name={{ .Name }} level={{ .Level }} msg={{ .Msg }}\n")

Child loggers can be created

child := logger.GetChild("child")
Example (Basic)

Shows how to use Go Log with no customization.

package main

import (
	"github.com/Noah-Huppert/golog"
)

func main() {
	// logger will print normal messages to stdout and errors to stderr
	logger := golog.NewLogger("basic-example")

	// Log messages for each log level
	logger.Debug("hello debug")
	logger.Debugf("hello %s", "debug")

	logger.Info("hello info")
	logger.Infof("hello %s", "info")

	logger.Warn("hello warn")
	logger.Warnf("hello %s", "warn")

	logger.Error("hello error")
	logger.Errorf("hello %s", "error")

	logger.Fatal("hello fatal")
	logger.Fatalf("hello %s", "fatal")

}
Output:

basic-example [DEBUG] hello debug
basic-example [DEBUG] hello debug
basic-example [INFO] hello info
basic-example [INFO] hello info
basic-example [WARN] hello warn
basic-example [WARN] hello warn
basic-example [ERROR] hello error
basic-example [ERROR] hello error
basic-example [FATAL] hello fatal
basic-example [FATAL] hello fatal
Example (Child)

Shows how to use the GetChild method

package main

import (
	"github.com/Noah-Huppert/golog"
)

func main() {
	// logger will print normal messages to stdout and errors to stderr
	logger := golog.NewLogger("get-child-example")

	// Log messages with the parent logger
	logger.Debug("hello debug")

	// Create a child logger
	child := logger.GetChild("child")

	// Log messages with the child logger
	child.Debug("hello debug")

}
Output:

get-child-example [DEBUG] hello debug
get-child-example.child [DEBUG] hello debug
Example (Format)

Shows how to customize the log output format

package main

import (
	"github.com/Noah-Huppert/golog"
)

func main() {
	// Configure logger with special format
	logger := golog.NewLogger("format-example")
	logger.SetFormatTmpl("name={{ .Name }} level={{ .Level }} msg={{ .Msg }}\n")

	// Log messages for each log level
	logger.Debug("hello debug")
	logger.Debugf("hello %s", "debug")

	logger.Info("hello info")
	logger.Infof("hello %s", "info")

	logger.Warn("hello warn")
	logger.Warnf("hello %s", "warn")

	logger.Error("hello error")
	logger.Errorf("hello %s", "error")

	logger.Fatal("hello fatal")
	logger.Fatalf("hello %s", "fatal")

}
Output:

name=format-example level=DEBUG msg=hello debug
name=format-example level=DEBUG msg=hello debug
name=format-example level=INFO msg=hello info
name=format-example level=INFO msg=hello info
name=format-example level=WARN msg=hello warn
name=format-example level=WARN msg=hello warn
name=format-example level=ERROR msg=hello error
name=format-example level=ERROR msg=hello error
name=format-example level=FATAL msg=hello fatal
name=format-example level=FATAL msg=hello fatal
Example (Levels)

Shows how to only display messages from certain log levels

package main

import (
	"github.com/Noah-Huppert/golog"
)

func main() {
	// Configure logger to only display error messages or greater
	logger := golog.NewLogger("levels-example")
	logger.SetLevel(golog.ErrorLevel)

	// Log messages which will not be shown because they are below the
	// specified log level
	logger.Debug("I will not be shown b/c I am a debug message")
	logger.Info("I am just an info message show I will not be shown")
	logger.Warn("Due to the fact that I am a warn message I will not be displayed")

	// Log message that will show
	logger.Error("Error log messages will show")
	logger.Fatal("I am a fatal message so I will be displayed")

}
Output:

levels-example [ERROR] Error log messages will show
levels-example [FATAL] I am a fatal message so I will be displayed
